More consistent points scores for Mezzomo at round 5 of V8 SCOPS Premier Series Vee Eight support series
With a strong result at Watkins Glen last time out, Simon came to the concrete jungle of Belle Isle in the motor city of Detroit looking to again score some good points and keep the car in one piece around the treacherous circuit.
Opting to start near the back of the field in qualifying to avoid the possible early carnage, race 1 was a bit of a struggle for Simon after lacking pace and burning his tyres too early but managed to move up 5 spots from his starting position to finish race 1 in 11th. Race 2 would have Simon start on pole thanks to the reverse grid and while a poor launch saw him drop a few places off the start, he would fight all race long to hold on to a 6th place finish and bag some very good points towards the championship.
Round 6 of the Vee Eights will have Mezz come home to a land down under for 2x 100km races around Phillip Island.
