"What a debut", "superb" just a few of the words from the GP3 Series about newcomers Koiranen GP (sponsored by Hype Energy Drinks) after teamates Aaro Vainio and Kevin Korjus came first and second, respectively, in their maiden race weekend in Barcelona.
Saturday’s results allowed Kevin Korjus to start from Pole whilst Aaro Vainio started from the second row grid.
Straight from the green light, Aaro Vainio took a fantastic start, surprising Kevin Korjus and taking the lead from the first corner. Despite Korjus signing the best lap in 1:37.669, he could not catch Aaro Vainio. The race ended as a one-two victory for Koiranen GP.
Their teamate Patrick Kujala finished P16 after starting P25, good pace and good improvement for the young rookie who was unfortunate on Race 1 having suffered engine problems forcing him to retire.
Koiranen GP is now leading the Team’s championship with 43 points. Next Stop, Hungaroring for testing on 5-6 June , before heading to Round 2 in Valencia on 15-16 June.
