Louis Foster has vowed to see his Euroformula Open Championship to the end with never give up attitude after a disastrous weekend in Monza where torrential rain affected proceedings. CryptoTower Racing Team driver Foster qualified in P2 but was taken out in the first race of the weekend at Monza - one of the six venues Foster hadn’t raced at before - while his title rival Das won the race.
Foster then had two more incidents in the following two races to collect no points, having gone into the weekend a single point behind Das. There’s 87 points on offer at the next round, and the gap is 63.
“That was a weekend to forget, but also every weekend is a learning one and we can definitely take things away from this one," said Foster, who is backed by Copart, a global leader in vehicle remarketing and recycling “Sadly it’s had a huge impact on the championship, but sometimes in motorsport weekends like this happen and there’s little you can do about it. “The team has supported me all season long and I owe it to them, the team behind me and myself to deliver a strong performance to end the season. “As long as it’s mathematically possible to go out and win the championship, that will always be the goal. “It will take more than a weekend like this to break our spirit. We’re not just going to roll over. Never give up.”
The next round is at Barcelona on October 23-24, where Foster has competed before, one of two races on the eight round calendar he has. He scored a podium on his first visit to the track Formula 1 also uses.
“It’s no secret we’ve been coming to a lot of the races this year with little or no experience of them,” added Foster. “I think that’s one of the reasons we can be happy that we have taken the title fight down to the last round with a very experienced driver in only our first year. “The Barcelona track is one many of the other drivers will still know a lot better than me, but I’ve at least seen how the track evolves and where it turns left and right.”
