Alfonso de Orléans-Borbón - President of Racing Engineering: "What a day! I am really proud of the team as the pressure was high and we didn’t really have any other option but to win. It was a great team effort, which allowed Ander and Myatt to take pole position in their respective categories. The Elite 1 race and Ander’s win were what we worked for and it’s amazing we actually achieved it. It’s a pity Romain’s race didn’t go as planned, but I am sure he will have a good comeback tomorrow. As for Myatt, he showed great pace in his race and set the fastest lap time. What a shame about the last corner incident as we lost a lot of points there but he starts from pole tomorrow and I am convinced he will fight back. Again, a big thank you to the team for all the work they put into making these results happen."
Ander Vilariño: “I have to say thanks to Racing Engineering for their work. We scored pole position, won the race and set the fastest lap but it has been way harder than the result shows. At the start of the race I ran away but then I made a mistake and I was caught; I almost lost the race because of that but I managed to turn it around and stay at the front. I'm very happy and ready to fight tomorrow.”
Romain Iannetta: "This was not the day we were hoping for. Qualifying didn’t go as it should have, and the starting position is crucial at a track like this. To avoid crashing at the start, I had to move from my line, and this resulted in a drive through penalty and this really caused us to have a bad race. So it was a voluntary act to stop earlier so as to preserve the tyres for tomorrow.”
Myatt Snider: "I am just proud of everybody at Racing Engineering for bringing me such a good Performance Ford Mustang. We had great speed all day and were able to get pole and we had phenomenal speed in the race. We were the fastest car. I just got a little bit too aggressive on a move and ended up costing us the race.
However it doesn’t take away the fact that we were one of the best cars in this race and we showed the strength of this team. I am proud of everyone and I just need to get my road racing etiquette better."
