Frustration in Macao for Sims

Have your say

WANSFORD-based racing driver Alexander Sims had a difficult end to a promising Macau racing weekend with racing incidents stopping him in both races.

Sim had an impressive qualifying session and lined up on the second row of the grid in a field of 29 for the first race.

Unfortunately for Sims, he clipped a barrier, causing damage to the car which was too serious to fix; forcing the former Stamford Schoolboy to retire from the race.

He lined up for Sunday’s feature race at the back of the grid and managed to avoid three separate incidents that had taken out over half of the field, to move up to eighth. But there was a slight coming together on the penultimate lap between Yamauchi and Sims, and Sims’ engine would not restart; forcing him to retire from the race.
