In the penultimate article of the 10 in 10 series, we look at the sister team of Avid Chronic Racing, Born2Win. Last year was their first in the World Championship and it certainly showed as they struggled for points during the season even with a rather impressive line-up. They should see a different fate this year as they have retained teamowner and ISR Club Vice President John-Eric Saxen with fellow Finn Teemu Valkeejarvi alongside.John-Eric Saxen, like a lot of people, has been around for as long as one can remember. A career spanning over 130 races in the top division of Formula SimRacing. Last year could be seen as a disappointment for him after scoring a measly 1 point but with the backing of Avid Chronic Racing and his own well documented experience, can he fight back in 2017?

 

In contrast to his experienced teammate, Teemu is certainly entering into the unknown whilst going in to the World Championship. He may look inexperienced on World Championship level but he more than impressed for the few races in which he took part in ACE. The Finn has all the resources behind him to get off to a very good World Championship debut, it’s only down to him now, to prove it.

We managed to catch up with Teemu earlier to see his thoughts on the season ahead.

 

What are your goals for the upcoming season?

Teemu: “My goal is to score points.”

 

Who do you think will be your biggest rival this season?

Teemu: “Hard to say about the biggest rival yet, maybe I’ll have a better idea after a couple of rounds.”

 

How strong do you think the grid looks this year?

Teemu: “I find the grid fairly strong (so strong that scoring points is my main goal and everything more would be a bonus, not expecting to get on the very top positions without some unexpected circumstances and a lot of luck).”

 

Join us later today where we will round up the 10 in 10 Previews with Netrex Grand Prix.
