- 2018 Series Pre-Season: Manufacturer Series
The final round of the Manufacturer Series Pre-Season took place on Interlagos. s-shohei_, who exhibited incredible skill in the Test Season, started from pole position in a Mitsubishi, with Nik_Makozi (Mercedes-Benz) biding his time close behind.
Nik_Makozi was quick to make his move on lap 2. Utilising s-shohei_‘s slip stream on the back straight, he overtook in the approach to turn 4, taking the lead in the race.
On lap 8, the top group all start to enterthe pit. s-shohei_ was better at saving tyres and fuel than Nik_Makozi, and managed to get ahead in the pit work, once again taking the lead.
But in the following lap, Nik_Makozi outdid s-shohei_ with the braking into turn 1, once again retaking 1st place.
s-shohei_ attempted to overtake Nik_Makozia number of times after this but was not able to succeed in the end, ultimately completing the race in 2nd place. However, though Nik_Makozi finished the race in 1st place, he was not able to outdo s-shohei_in the final ranking for the Season, and the Manufacturer Series Pre-Season title went to s-shohei_ and Mitsubishi.
