11 in 11 - Twister Racing Season Preview

Today we preview Twister Racing, and their drivers with the Formula SimRacing World Championship just 7 days away. The unit that destroyed the competition last year in the World Championship has just the 1 team under the Twister guise this year, but with 2 very exciting and top talents in the world of Formula SimRacing.

This year sees a change in colours for Twister, gone is the traditional blue and in comes a very eye catching grey, red and black combination. As for the drivers, Francesco Bigazzi has moved from Eventa were he impressed last year to the Italian outfit, and he will be hoping that with the help and support of the team, he can build on the success of his debut season, and challenge for wins on a consistent basis in 2016.

Daniel Kiss will be alongside him in the 2nd seat, Daniel stunned the FSR world last year by winning in Australia, his debut in the world championship, and a permanent move to World Championship for this season he will be hoping like his team mate that he can be there or thereabouts near the front.

So to sum it all up for Twister, due to their success last season they will be considered by many to be the pre-season favourites, but both drivers and team boss David Greco will certainly not be counting any chickens.

Both drivers were able to share with us their thoughts on the season ahead:

Francesco Bigazzi

"There is always a lot of excitement going into a new season. There's quite a lot of new stuff, so we can say it's like a revolution from the past years. We have completely different cars that will require an equally different management.  Also for me, I'm in a new team and it's like the beginning of a new challenge. I said i would have never leaved Eventa for any other team except Twister. I feel like we are going in the right direction and i'm happy to have Daniel as my team mate, i didn't know him well before joining twister, he's a nice a guy and a very good driver so i think we can make a strong job together. The pre-season has been positive, and now our focus is going into the first race, a good result would be a big boost for the team. It's going to be a long season, so we need to make sure we will be strong every race. That's the only way you can fight for the championship, and being in this team, is also the only target we must be looking for."

 

Daniel Kiss

"I can't wait for the new season because it'll be my first full season in WC. Petar and Mo did really well last year, it'll be extremely difficult to match their results, so we'll have to work hard with my new team mate, Francesco Bigazzi. Given that Petar won't be racing this year, I believe that the title will be open for quite a few people, I can see like 6-7 people taking it, I expect close races. My aim is obviously to win the title, you can't really shoot for less in Twister, but I know that it's not going to be easy at all. We'll see how it goes, I would only be happy with my season if I finished in top 3 at the end."
