Greg Mansell and Miguel Molina have had a dramatic start to the 2009 World Series by Renault Season with both Ultimate Motorsport cars amongst the fastest cars lapping the Barcelona circuit, with the Spanish driver setting the fastest lap of the race, plenty of overtaking and dramas throughout the 45 minute race.
Miguel Molina (#4 Ultimate Motorsport) set the fastest time in the SuperPole qualifying for opening meeting of the 2009 World Series by Renault. However the celebrations were cut short when the team spotted a problem when they had mistakenly fitted Molina’s car with his teammate’s tyres at the start of the session. Team Manager Colin Morgan immediately reported the mistake to the race stewards who took the decision to disallow Molina’s SuperPole times. The Spanish driver duly lined up in 12th place for the opening race of the 2009 season, three places ahead of teammate Greg Mansell (#3 Ultimate Motorsport).
