Taylor’s Tour…..

Henry Taylor\'s day job is running a mortgage broking business in Eastbourne on the south coast of England, when not taking part in the Seat Cupra Championship

Sydney was the next stop on the calendar for the A1 Grand Prix World Cup.

With the teams becoming more familiar with the cars, qualifying sessions are getting closer. Just one second covered the top five for Sunday’s races.

France again took pole, ahead of Portugal. France seem to have found the sweet spot with these cars and is looking increasingly dominant.

The sprint race was first. France powered into the lead but this was short lived after an incident in turn one. Once the race restarted France pulled away again, gaining a three second lead at half way. But Brazil had not given up and Nelson Piquet Jnr was trying everything to pass Portugal. Unfortunately, Portugal had seen it all before and hung on to their place. France won by nine seconds.

France has certainly established itself as the team to beat.

The feature race came next. Once again France started from pole but didn’t get a great start, dropping to second by the end of the first lap. It was Portugal out in front this time, with a great start from second on the grid. It looked like their first win of the season until the steward decided their start had been a little too great and gave them a penalty which gifted the race to – France, of course. Britain came second, equalling their best performance of the year.

France have the look of the champions. Let’s hope someone can stop them at the next race in Malaysia.
