Day three of the AGP is a wrap, with races two and three of the weekend top and tailing the day.

Tomorrow we have our final race of the weekend to round out Round 3.

Race 7

It was all going well until it wasn’t as they say.

Coming into the last corner on the last lap, Chaz was in a battle for third, and Nick was in 10th – which was despite dropping down the field after having to double-stack under safety car.

After the last corner, Chaz was given a penalty following contact with JC after he was run wide, which dropped him from third across the line to 22nd on the results.

Nick also got hit by Anton (who got a penalty for it) which dropped him to 16th.

Race 8

Chaz carried some battle scars from early in the race that hindered him throughout most of the 20 laps, but he battled on well.

Both cars follow a similar strategy getting off the soft tyre early, but Nick spent a lot longer in the lane than anticipated after a wheel wouldn’t budge, dropping him right down the order through no fault of his own. Outside of that, the car speed was strong.

Chaz managed to hold off those behind for the last 10 laps gallantly, banking a solid haul of points.
