Alfonso de Orléans-Borbón - President of Racing Engineering: "A real pity about what happened during the Elite 1 race. Even though it was a very exciting race for the fans, the driving was much too aggressive and caused a lot of damage to both cars. It's a shame that both Ander and Romain had so much damage on their cars that they had to abandon the race. So much so, Romain’s car could not be repaired on time for the Elite 2 race. Although the Elite 1 race was a real heartbreak for us, Myatt made up for it with his fantastic drive in the first Elite 2 race of the weekend, which netted him his first podium of the year in second place. The entire Racing Engineering crew did a fantastic job and a special thanks goes to the guys, who didn’t get any sleep last night changing the engine on car #88. Now let’s get ready for tomorrow’s races!"
Ander Vilariño: “The result of the race is the consequence of not having done a good qualifying, we didn't find the best set up and I didn't feel comfortable either. Starting in the group I was hit on the first lap and despite having recovered up to ninth place in the end the chassis broke down where I was hit and I had to stop. A shame as we lost the leadership of the series but there is one race to drop from the results of the first seven, so I hope it will be this one.”
Romain Iannetta: "During the opening lap I hit Tineo, in turn 7 the cars in front slowed down a lot and even though I tried, I could not slow down my car enough to avoid contact. On the following straight the damaged front bumper exploded inward into the chassis. I tried to hold on, but the car was worsening with every lap, so I decided to retire so as to avoid more damage.”
Myatt Snider: "I had a fast Ford Performance Racing Engineering Mustang in today’s race. I struggled a bit early on to find when the car was at its best, but it really came to me in the middle of the race. The race really played out in my favour. I made some daring moves, made a three-wide pass for third and finished second. Really proud of my Racing Engineering guys for giving me a good Ford Performance Mustang."
