Round 1 of the GT Sport FIA Manufacturer Series got underway on the 1st April 2019. As usual Demo 1 Garage will be representing Ferrari using both the GT3 and GT4 variants of the Ferrari 458.

The Race went much better than expected, using a unique two stop strategy, using the quicker medium compound for only two laps and the hard for the remaining five, we where able to jump ahead to second spot.

This left us with some tyre management, which served well in the final lap. We where racing two very quick drivers on mediums, who could corner much faster, a few mistakes during the lap however proved to be too much and with the final turn in sight, Josh put the power down a fraction too quickly and lost the back end of the car, quickly recovering to fourth but losing out on a podium for the first round.
