SS3 Round 4 Race 1: Absmeier wins season comeback race

Jason Absmeier (#90 Trigon Revlimit Racing)  won race one of the SA simSS3 Round at Mugello, his first SS3 race since the 2014 season.

In a field riddled with more season newcomers, Absmeier started well from pole position to fend off the Squadro GhostworX pairing of Basheer Jadwat and Jonathan Bentz into the opening corner.

After reclaiming second position from Bentz, Jadwat began his immediate charge towards Absmeier. Later an unfortunate incident forced Bentz into early retirement and Juan Liebenberg (#88 Phantom GhostworX) down to 11th position.

Mark Henebury (#12 HRT) and Johannes Coetsee (#46 Shadow GhostworX) moved up positions when Jadwat spun at San Lorenzo. Jason Holden-Jones won his mid-race fight with debutant Gabriel Rossouw for fifth position.

A shuffle towards  the end of the race saw Jadwat move up to second position.

Absmeier enjoyed a stunning season comeback to cruise to victory 17 seconds ahead of Jadwat. Coetsee finished on the podium.
