Double Points Finish for Lucas Oil’s F2 Drivers

Ayumu Iwasa in his #17 car in Red Bull Junior colours

(14th July, 2022) – 

Lucas Oil’s two F2-sponsored drivers were in the points for the Feature Race, at the latest meeting in Austria last weekend.

Racing the #17 car in Red Bull Junior colours, Ayumu Iwasa (Japan) finished 7th. Roy Nissany (Israel), racing the #16 car in DAMS colours, finished two places behind him in 9th place. The drivers had to master challenging weather conditions, with some safety car driving, too. On a drying track, the choice of tyres played a major part in the final placings.

As neither driver collected points in the Sprint Race, the French-based DAMS Team had to be content with a total of 8 points haul for the weekend.

“At the halfway stage, Iwasa is lying 13th in the Driver’s Championship, while Nissany is placed 17th” says Dan Morgan, sales and operations director of Lucas Oil Products (UK). “The team is currently back in 8th place, but there will be opportunities to move up in the standings during the second half of the season.”

The next round is at Le Castlellet, in France, from 22-24 July 2022.
