Race Wrap: FSR takes 1-2-3
Round 4 of the Aussie Mixed & Fixed Iracing League and Fusion SimRacing had big numbers across two splits at the Circuit de Spa-Francorchamps.
8 FSR drivers took to the undulating track in the fixed setup GTE field, 6 in top split and 2 in split two. For our top split it was a mix of talent through the field with Craig Edwards claiming pole and leading the charge into turn 1. Craig would never look back and opened up a margin to the competition, eventually taking the win with a fairly straight forward race.

The battles through out the field were fierce, Nathan Huppatz in a strategic fight with Trent Thomas, Rodd Rizzo of Trick Esports and Leigh Van Den Berghe of Mach-1 Esports all using different strategies to try and come out on top. Nathan sticking to the tried and tested ways and coming out on top in that battle to claim second position.
Josh Burdon starting from P27 finished just outside the top 10 in P13, Warren Pickering started p17 and had a damage from early on in the race, but managed P21, Scott Stephens poorly qualifed in P40 and finished in P25,Brett Hender had a bender finished P38 and Matthew Barron in his first drive with a bit of a come back to racing finished in split one in P42.

Our Development Program Drivers also took to the grid in split two. Lockhart Brownlie and Mike Gee both having really solid races. Lockie with another excellent drive starting 19th, made his way through the field and and was closing the gap to to P2 only to have time run out and finished up 3rd outright and P2 in class. Mike had a difficult race, sustaining damage early on, he pushed though and to finish out his race in P24.

Rounding out the night, it was a 1-2 in split 1 and a 3rd in split 2. The mind set now switches to the next round as the team heads to
Watkins Glen International. With a sprint round on the cards, we look to push for more podiums and good results.

Tuesday night madness and Fusion SimRacing took to the Red Pepper Racing V8's for a blast around Okayama International Circuit with 23 laps of Supercars action.
Great qualifying from all 3 drivers saw Josh Burdon and Warren Pickering starting out of positions 2 and 3, while Brock Cremer was just sitting outside the top 10 in 11th.

A great start from Brock moved him nicely into the top 10, in 8th position. A battle group all race long, Brock eventually maintaining position and finished in 8th.
Josh and Warren would apply pressure right from the green flag. Josh leading the charge on the opening lap and would lead every lap bar 5 during the pit stops. Warren had a similar race, taking 2nd on lap 3, would also lead the race briefly during the pit stops and maintained second position for the race.

Eventually the FSR team would take the checkered flag in a 1-2 finish for the night. Another outstanding result for the team this week, having two 1-2 finishes.

Aussie Mixed & Fixed Iracing League Season 11 - Round 1

AMF has gone big this season, many new names, new teams all entering the GT championship. FSR having 5 drivers within the series so far and have a very good chance of doing well and securing a couple of class championships.

For round 1, we saw 3 drivers competing across 2 splits. As a late entry and no laps under his belt, Josh Burdon landed himself a split 2 start, while Nathan Huppatz and Scott Stephens made split 1. Unfortunately Josh was unable to make the race start due to technical issue and will bounce back in round 2.

For Nathan and Scott, the race start was critical and staying clean and getting a good track position was key. A spun car and another on its roof at the hair pin on lap 2 saw the safety car out and strategy was pivotal, Nathan electing to pit and Scott staying out moving himself from 36th to 9th.
Race re-start and the battle was on, Nathan moving swiftly through the field and Scott maintaining a top 10 position. Scott deciding to pull the pin and pit, dropping back through the order down to 38th position, the decision to stay out wasn't the right one. Nathan however made the right decision and went about chasing down the race leader Braydn Nash of Synergy Sim Racing. Nathan pushing Braydn all the way to the finish, squashing quite a large gap to coming home in 2nd only .5 of second behind the leader. while Scott had an unfortunate crash at the final corner and squashed any chance of a top 20 finish, ending his race in 29th.
