Timmy Hansen pleased with clean run to round eight win

Timmy Hansen won once again in TitansRX in round eight at the MJP Arena, becoming the second driver to win three times this season.

It was very nearly a different story with the Swede’s day getting a boost after his brother Kevin retired from the final part of qualifying, moving him up to the top qualifying spot.

“It was a good race,” he said. “I inherited the lead after Kevin’s problem in Q3 and then I won the semi and the final.”

“It was two clean races, not the most exciting from my perspective, but a win is a win. I had a good launch, put everything together and we came out on top so it was good.”

Despite being a three-time winner, a winless weekend at Lydden Hill earlier in the season means that Timmy Hansen currently sits 11 points adrift of the series lead with just four races to go.

“We need to deliver every weekend,” Hansen said of the close points battle in the upcoming final part of the season. “The gap is not big so we need to race for every position we can get.”

“It’s hard, it depends on the randomness of the qualifying, a lot of things happen,” he added. “For Kevin on Sunday he was very fast but he came third so it depends what happens on the day. It’s so much up to the others, whoever starts first and gets the launch is going to win the race out of us three.”

“If I want to catch up in the points I need to win both races maybe in Hungary,” Hansen insisted. “That’s going to be tough, it’s such small points margins as well. I’m quite a way back in that I can only gain three points per race if the others are second or third, so I need to have a very good weekend there to be in the mix for Buxtehude.”
