Sandy steps up with Trident at Barcelona

Thai racing driver Sandy Kraokaew Stuvik has completed the first race weekend of the year at the Barcelona-Catalunya Circuit in Spain. The GP3 Series continues as an official support event for 9 of the FIA Formula One World Championship events.

After a difficult qualifying session Sandy finished in P22, this would make it a challenging weekend as the Spanish circuit is not known for its overtaking opportunities.

Race 1 on Saturday afternoon saw Sandy getting an amazing launch off his grid spots and begin to climb up the ladder. The first 3 laps were exciting as all the cars were jostling for position before simmering down to conserve tires. Sandy finished the race in 18th place.

Race 2 took place on Sunday morning and Sandy was positive his start could gain him some places. After another terrific start Sandy was close to the top ten, but in the end had to settle for 15th place.

“We were disadvantaged by the qualifying so it made our weekend much more difficult. Nevertheless, we made improvements to the car from Race 1 to Race 2 and shows that we will work non-stop to get into the top ten. Now our focus is all towards improving our qualifying performance for Red Bull Ring. The next event will be a 2-day test at the Red Bull Ring Circuit in Austria where Sandy finished in 7th place last year, the young Thai hopes to improve upon that result this year.

Sandy is grateful for his support from Singha Corporation, The Pizza Company, Dacon Inspection Services, the Tourism Authority of Thailand, the Royal Automobile Association of Thailand, and the Sports Authority of Thailand.
