What they say


Bari Boroumand

“Heading into Event 2, our preparation has been slightly different to what we did for Event 1. Having us all here at MTC has allowed our team spirit to really show, it has been great working with Lucas and Wilson and the rest of the Shadow team. We want to continue to build on what we achieved in Event 1, and make sure we finish Event 2 strong.   

Lucas Blakeley  

“Looking at Event 2 we certainly have different challenges at every track we drive at. The racing at Belgium and Austria could be spicy with track position being key at Zandvoort. It will be critical to maximise our opportunities and build on the strengths that we had in Event 1. We’ve put a lot of hours into this event as a team working together to be prepared for all eventualities.” 

Wilson Hughes  

“Heading into Event 2 we are looking to build on our lead. We have been working very hard behind the scenes and we know what needs to be done. Just because we are leading now does not mean we will be leading next event so we need to stay hungry.”
