The debut season in ELMS is going according to plans: the objective in the initial races was to acquire some experience and we are happy on constantly scoring points; we now aim to do a consistent step forward in the second half of the season. Ending the 24 hours in the top ten has been another cause of pride which confirmed our potential”.
