New Track! No problem! Alex Quinn storms to victory at Spa

October 27, 2020

Eurocup Formula Renault 2.0

It was a weekend of firsts for Alex Quinn at the weekend as he stormed through the pack in an absolute masterclass of driving at the legendary Spa as he claimed his maiden Formula Renault Eurocup victory on a track he had never driven.

The weekend started off rather difficult for Quinn, 13th in qualifying made the weekend look as though it would be an uphill battle to salvage a good result. However Quinn refused to let this result stop him as he stormed through the pack all the way to 4th in race one taking to the infamous podium to claim yet another rookie win. A great start to his weekend and a result which would bring great confidence heading into the final race of the weekend on the Saturday.

Starting 13th once again meant it would be no easy job to score another great result but Quinn had his eyes firmly on the prize and as lights went out and they sped towards Eau Rouge Quinn was a man on a mission and was not letting anything stop him. A fantastic drive and some mind-blowing manoeuvres saw Quinn take the lead and lead an all red all Arden one two finish to the line. A great result for Quinn, his teammate Ugo De Wilde and of course the Arden Team.

A true showing of Quinns sensational talent and a well deserved win for the #YRDArmy superstar.

Silverware at Snetterton for Ardens #RedArrows

It was a tough weekend with a silver lining for the Arden and YRDA British F4 squad at the weekend as the series arrived at the Snetterton circuit, however there was most certainly a silver lining.

The weekend started off well for all three of the Arden drivers as they qualified well in 3rd, 7th and 10th for Connor, Bilinski and Lubin respectively setting all three of the young talents up with a strong chance of a great result.

Race one saw a difficult race for the team and Connor fell foul to some bad luck at the start forcing him towards the rear of the grid. However in the same fashion as Alex Quinn he battled hard to the end and claimed 9th and some important points to help his championship. Both Roman Bilinski and Frederick Lubin also had a solid run in race one both gaining places to finish 7th and 8th respectively.

There was some clear inspiration from the scenes at Spa within the cockpit of Bilinski in race two as he drove another phenomenal race to clinch yet another podium finish to end his day on a high, showing everyone he is now a regular contender for those top three spots. Alex Connor also had a strong showing in race two fighting back from 9th to take 6th at the flag, once again showing to never give up and always keep pushing. A great result for the UAE based driver. Race two for Lubin brought a tough battle but he kept on pushing to the flag and salvaged 10th giving him plenty of motivation heading into Sunday's finale.

Race three was certainly a hard fought battle for the #YRDArmy as the weekend came to a close a solid drive saw Connor finish 5th with teammate Lubin hot on his heels in 6th as he drove a great race to leave the weekend firmly in second place in the rookie standings. Roman Bilinski rounded out the weekend with a 10th finish.

All round many positives to take away for the Arden team at Snetterton and now all eyes focus on ending on a high at Brands Indy in two weeks time.
