eSupplements Sponsored #7 SH Racing Ford Fiesta ST GRC Car
We sponsored the #7 SH Racing Ford Fiesta ST car during the iconic Red Bull Global Rallycross Los Angeles that took place September 12th & 13th at the beautiful Port of Los Angeles in San Pedro, California, surrounded by historic US Navy warships and packed with rallycross fans from all over the world.
The #7 Ford Fiesta ST was piloted by none other than Nelson Piquet Jr., former Formula 1 driver, winner of the inaugural Formula E Championship, and son of three-time Formula 1 world champion Nelson Piquet.
Coming into race weekend ranking 3rd in championship points and fresh off his first overall victory in Washington DC in August, Piquet Jr. aimed at capitalizing on his recent successes and racing well enough to put him within reach of the current championship points leader, Ken Block.
Piquet Jr. finished first in Heats 1A and 2A on Saturday morning, placing him on the front row for the final Saturday afternoon.
After an incident in morning practice on Sunday, the #7 crew worked a fever pace to get the car put back together in time for the qualifying heats in Round 8 on Sunday. The crew got the car ready for the qualifier, but Nelson Piquet Jr. wasn’t able to work the car through the pack, resulting in a 10th place finish during the final Sunday afternoon.
While it’s not the weekend the #7 SH Racing team was hoping for, they’re moving forward and have their goals set on a double-header at Bushy Park in Barbados October 3rd and 4th.
There are still 3 rounds left in the championship, and the #7 SH Racing team are definitely still in the fight for a driver’s championship.
