What do you say about this class debut Scott?
– Amazingly, it was close racing from the first test day, through the heats and finally getting the win in the final was great, super fun.
The event in Corona times, how was it?
– We had to keep a distance of 2,5 meters and have mouthguards, it was ok, a bit strange but also a little fun, we looked nice, on the grid we had a helmet and visor, so it was as usual.
