Season 2014 over - 3rd in ETCC and 1st in Cupra Cup Junior Class
A long and busy season is done now - 11 international racing weekends, 22 starts. It was one of the best seasons for Aku as he finished 3rd in ETCC Single Make Trophy despite not having raced in the last round. Aku achieved 4 wins - more than anyone else.
Castrol Cupra Cup Italia was also succesfull. Aku won the Junior class again and was among the fastest drivers in every race. At the end of the season there were some technical troubles, but that is part of motorsport.
And at the end of the season Aku took part to Seat Leon Eurocup in Monza. It was a wonderful experience to drive a brand new car in one of the hardest one make series in the world. The result of the races were not quite what we expected, but Aku's pace was really good. He was second fastest among 27 drivers in qualifying with a very low experience with the car. This shows the potential and gives also confidence in future.
It is time to thank everyone who made this season possible : Niinivirta Transport Spa, Niinivirta European Cargo Oy, Seat Finland, B.D. Racing, Seat Motorsport Italia, Online Solutions, Kobra and HuoltoRengas Laiho.
Thank you! - Grazie! - kiitos!
The preparations for next season have already started. There is a lot of work to do before Aku will be on the starting grid of the first race weekend in 2015, but we are ready to meet the challenges!
