The summer break ends with Round 9 of the Thrustmaster World Championship. Autodromo Nazionale Monza plays host to the Formula SimRacing Italian Grand Prix.
The legendary circuit at Monza is very fast, and we should see some very high top speeds. The teams that are able to have the lowest aero setup while maintaining stability through sector 2 will see the most success.
The top 4 drivers from last year will be absent this race, making this a free for all with no defending winner.
GhostSpeed's drivers have shown great pace and high top speeds at previous circuit this season. Look for both Jernej Simoncic and Jonny Simon to top the charts in qualifying. Kuba Brzezinski, 4th in the championship, is still looking for his first WC win. The race may very well belong to the 2Fast4You drivers of Petar Brljak and Muhammed Patel, as they have had a mostly unbeatable season. Throw in the sister team drivers of Jim Parisis and Daniel Kiss of Twister Racing, and the consistency these drivers have shown, it will be hard pressed for anyone else to stand atop the podium.
Look for the home teams to do well. Both Twister teams, and BBR Life4Racing call Monza their home race. Francesco Bigazzi, David Greco and Marco Conti will all be looking to impress at their home circuit.
The racing starts on Saturday August 29 with the ACE Championship and continues on Sunday starting with the PRO Championship and culminating in the Thrustmaster World Championship later on Sunday. Watch us live on YouTube and even take a look at the livetiming at www.raceview.nl.
