He came, saw and overtook! Michal Smidl wins the third championship race of the Racer League in Racing Unleashed Championship: Beyond the Pinnacle. For him it is the second victory in the third race. Having started from fifth place, it only took two corners after a lightning start to take the lead. After that, nobody could stop the Czech simracing star.
But he didn’t stay there long. Collisions and overtaking maneuvers eventually pushed him up to fifth place. “The format with the knock-out qualifying is not my favorite, but nothing can stop me,” says Smidl confidently.
In the main race, it took less than three corners to take the lead: “I got off to a good start and was at the front very quickly. Then I was pushed aside but was able to maintain the lead. From then on it was a nice, relaxed Sunday drive,” says a happy Smidl, who now leads the table with 29 points ahead of Monza runner-up Enrique Maranon. Vojtech Polesny completes the podium. The Munich Lounge celebrates the first double podium this season with the performances of Smidl and Polesny.
After a very good start, the reigning runner-up has worked his way directly into the top 3. A few laps later, Cid was already dictating the pace at the front and brought home the win. “It was extremely stressful, but I’m happy to have won now,” he explains after the numerous overtaking manoeuvres.
In the championship, Cid extends his lead. After three out of ten races he is 28 points ahead of his Spanish compatriot Valverde.
