I watched the race but it didn’t look like the track offered many overtaking opportunities. After a bad start, Quaife-Hobbs first couldn’t overtake Varhaug, then he had a messy pit stop and couldn’t get past van der Drift, despite being obviously quicker in both cases.
The race was won by Antonio Pizzonia, the former F-1 driver, who had never raced in the series before and, as I understand, had been away from the single seater racing for some time, too. That made me wonder how high the quality of the Auto GP actually is. Nevertheless, it’s nice to widen my knowledge of motorsports by learning more about different series!
