Auto Vale, Brazil, was the place of 6th stage. Buka started his GR carreer almost 2 years ago at this track, so he wanted much to have a good result here. But other 26 pilots wanted the same thing. In this excellent race, marked by win of 2 pilots (JR Zullo and Fabricio), Buka was only 17th. Oleksa was even slower - 23rd. So. no points for our team this time and one position down in Team Standings (11th).
There were 16 drivers at the race in Australia and our drivers were far from last: Tizio made a great race and finished 5th and Buka was 10th. Now Tizio is 8th in the Driver Standings (25 pts) and Buka is 12th (15 pts). In Team Standings Salo also made one step forward - now our team is 5th (40 pts). We need to push hard to beat Yokomo and G.A.P.
The fourth event was held on streets of La Habana. Only Salo Sport was in the whole squad. Pava and Trautman didn't get visas to Cuba. The best of Salo's racers was Reckdal, who was the 5th both in qualy and race and got the title of Saloman of the race. Buka was 6th in the qualy, Tizio was only 8th and technical problems of Oleksa's Ferrari allowed him to be only 13th. Rich.K won this race, while Buka was passed by Tony and finished at the 7th place, Tizio finished in a moment behind him. Oleksa stayed on his 13th place till the finish of the race.
Rich.K almost won this champ (118 points). Tizio is still the best among Salomen with 52 pts, Reckdal and Buka are not very far from him (44 and 29 pts). Oleksa is still 13th (15 pts), Trautman - 17th (5 pts) and Pava - 18th. In Team standings Salo Sport is now 5th with 73 pts (more then 100 pts behind the leader: Team RKR). Salo Junior is 7th with 52 pts and Salo Racing is at 9th place (20 pts).
The short review of several last races: At Silverstone Buka was 5th at the satrting grid and he couldn't improve his position in race - still 5th. In Atlanta Oleksa managed to get the podium at the very fast oval - 3rd. In Bathurst our drivers didn't take part for personal reasons.
So, the compo is over. The championship is won by Tony, followed by Moged and Sauber11. Oleksa became the Saloman of the Championship. He is 10th (among 22 drivers) in Drivers Standings (75 pts). Buka has the 13th position with 38 points. In Team Standings Salo Racing has the 7th place (113 pts) among 14 teams and is far from team champion - Team Lotus (307 pts). It was long and hard championship, but we hope to have one more season.
The race at Kutford gathered 14 drivers all over the world. Our Salo drivers also took raced at this tiny classic oval: Buka was 9th and Tizio was just a bit slower - 11th. Afret that race Tizio holds 11th place (15 pts) and Buka is 13th (10 pts.) In Team Standings Salo Racing is 6th (25 pts).
The race at Fexon wasn't marked by any good result of Salo drivers: Oleksa was 11th and Buka was 20th. Salo Racing is now 10th in Team Standings. We have 23 points and all of them are earned by Oleksa, who is now 14th in Drivers Standings. Buka, we need better results from our team leader!
The 5th round of GRC:S4 was held at Tizio's home track at Lost Island. Tizio used that advantage and was pretty fast, but not so fast as Fabricio from Brazil - only 0.26 secs between them. So, it is one more time 2nd place for Tizio and we still wait for victory, as there are only two races left. Shynha finished 3rd, so in the Drivers Standings both Tizio and Shynha have now 54 points. The 3rd is Fabricio (50 pts). The races at Albi'67 and Padbork Park will determine the winner in this close battle. In Team Standings Salo Racing is now 2nd (54 points).
The first two races of the new championship was held on standart GR tracks. Salo Racing here is represented by Buka and Tizio. In Agari Tizio was 6th, while Buka had bad troubles with his black&white Formula. In Bytes Buka was better (11th place), than Tizio(13th place). In Team Standings Salo Racing has the last position with only 15 points. Buka, as he said in interview to our journalist, is sure that in the nearest event Salo will show much better results and will have two top-5 places! Everyone in Ukraine and Italy hope he told us the truth.
