“I didn't start really good, because I had a lot of [wheel] spin but, after the first five laps, the car was good,” Garcia said, “I stayed behind Simona but, after lap five or six, I started to lock the right front tyre. After that, I had a lot of understeer, and it was impossible to continue the same pace like Simona and also the same pace like Edwards. I think the only thing was to finish third. It's a good result and we'll see what happens next week.”
Making his first start of the season for Newman Wachs Racing, Summerton came home fourth in the #34 car for his fourth top-four performance in five races this season, having started the season with Genoa Racing. Tonis Kasemets matched his best run of the season with fifth place for Polestar Motor Racing, while Genoa took sixth and seventh courtesy of rookies Frederic Vervisch and James Winslow. The Belgian missed the podium for just the second time this season, while Winslow earned the best result of his short Atlantic career after starting eighth in the #19 CARS Motorsport-backed entry and posting strong sector times as he enjoyed continuity for the first time in a fragmented campaign.
