Spengler shines in Budapest
TMo fights for the ever elusive podium
BUDAPEST, HUNGARY - Andreas Spengler produced
"Spengler fights it out"
his best performance of this FSR World Championship season and finished a well earned 4th place at the Hungarian Grand Prix.
The Torrent Motorsports driver passed an amazing five cars in the final four laps to claim five coveted World Championship points. Spengler qualified sixth and managed to improve this position during the race and with less than five laps remaining Spengler put his head down and carved his way into the points.
This tremendous result moved Spengler within five points of 5th place in the Drivers'

Championship and also allowed Torrent Motorsports to regain 5th place in the Team Championship.
The ACE division proved to be another tough outing Torrent Motorsports Wes Richards as he was only able to capture three points and 12th position from 19th on the grid. Gabriel Montanes was the unfortunate recipient of a blown motor while waiting for the other drivers to place their cars on the grid.
The Pro division saw Sam Giltner qualify second and Nicholas Morse a few rows back in seventh. A damaged front wing on lap one saw Giltner pit and, ultimately,

this ended any hope of a podium finish. Morse had an eventful race and at the end of the day was able to maintain his 7th place.
A frustrating disqualification for Michael Theis in the AMA division as it was ruled Theis did not allocate for the Hungary round. Despite their best efforts to explain the situation to the event stewards the Osiris Shoes, Baker Billiards, USD Ferrari was not allowed to race.
Turkey is the next destination for Torrent Motorsports and the entire FSR World Series and we look forward to ending the season on a positive note.
