On October 14, the third round out of seven of the SCNEF1 thirteenth season took place at the national championship’s home Grand Prix in Montmeló, Barcelona.
After two first decent rounds, Team Mentalism heads into Spain being fourth in the championship, 48 points behind FVR Esports in the lead. Yoan and Grimbows are the two drivers lined up for the team, with the objective of doing a clean team race, fighting for a potential podium.
The evening starts well for Team Mentalism as Yoan clinches pole position with a stunning time of 1.15.504, and Grimbows seals P3 with a time of 1.15.560. Only 70 thousandths separate the Top4, all completed by Team Mentalism and World Series Online drivers.
At the start of the race, Yoan loses first place to WSO_SusoCM, and both Team Mentalism drivers keep P2 and P3 until a safety car comes in on Lap 7. Both drivers are obliged to pit, which compromises Grimbows‘ chances of a podium as he loses many positions in the pits with the double stack.
In a constant fight with FVR_MoDeSTroLL, WSO_SusoCM and WSO_AlexPro34 until the end of the race, Yoan finally manages to finish on the last step of the podium, and Grimbows does its best finishing P5, in what concludes an excellent race for the team with a good haul of points that gives the team some hope regarding the title fight.
Yoan scores Team Mentalism‘s 10th all-time podium in the Spanish national championship SCNEF1, which next race is in the United States on October 28, as the title fight begins to take shape between FVR Esports, World Series Online and Team Mentalism.
