Finally it was the last event of the season. Up to now Bob has been having a pretty good season. With one podium and many high places finishes Bob was sitting in contention for a end of the year podium for the championship.
RD8 started cold and wet.
DMCC had ran this track last year for its finals but they changed things up slightly for this year. Bob and his crew look it over.
It was a packed drivers meeting.
Practice went great and Bob was nailing the course. He was looking good for qualifications coming up.
Bob’s first run was solid and got him in 9th spot, just out of the top 8 locked in positions.
On his second pass he got himself again in the 9th spot and with the 2nd highest entry speed!
The next morning Bob was in good spirits to get his drift on!
His crew got some fresh tires on before the first practice session of the day.
Practice went great again.
For the first time this year they held a Top 16 drivers intro. Bob would be facing Simon Schaffner in the Top 16.
Simon led first. He was actually able to pull a good gap on Bob.
On Bobs chase Bob did great but Simon was able to stay with him.
The battle could of gone for a OMT but the judges sided in favour of Simon. Bob had a great 2013 season and the fact that he finished off the season in 4th spot overall as a privateer is very impressive. It shows just how consistent Bob is as driver and with the off season to get the car even more competitive the 2014 will no doubt be even better.
