Maxwell finishes strong in season opener of 2017 Formula Renault Eurocup Championship
Tech 1 Racing driver Thomas Maxwell has finished thirteenth in Race 1 on Saturday and fifth in Race 2 on Sunday at the season opener of the 2017 Formula Renault Eurocup Championship in Monza, Italy.
End of qualifying on Day 1 had Maxwell 8th fastest on track starting in Position 13 with a time of 1:49.469 and finishing 13th in Race 1. A crash between two drivers had the race finish on a red flag after only 3 flying laps with two safety cars.
End of qualifying on Day 2 saw Maxwell earn Position 2 in group and 4th overall with a time of 1:50.295 and finishing 5th after an exciting race that had viewers sitting on the edge of their seats.
13th & 5th out of 30 drivers are two solid results for the 18 year old from Darwin, who skillfully avoided making contact with other cars during the action packed weekend, in which a number of drivers retired early due to collisions.
