The season started slowly, with two 4th places finish at Suzuka and only 9th at Spa. “The HPP – Orion Ford GT GT3 car was twitchy to drive at first, so it took a while for me to get used to it.” he said. “After a few races and disappointing results, without knowing how nor why, the car suddenly felt alive and I was able to get some speed”. After that, everything got better. He won three races in a row to take the lead of the championship.
David prooved impressive consistency all season long, finishing in the top-5 in 28 of the scheduled 30 races season, with 23 podium finishes and 9 wins. “I have never been really comfortable with the car, so this season was one of the toughest in my career. For this reason, it was also one of my best performance, so Im very proud of the result. Thanks to the team!” he concluded.
Teammate François Boulianne also showed great performance all season long in his first with the Team, despite an obvious lack of practice. “The season started well with a win at Spa.” he said. “Sebring was not a good timing for me because I made some mistakes that cost me a few points in the rankings. Subsequently there was the sequence of track not too natural for the type of vehicle but I managed to get out anyway.”
François lost ground on 2nd place in the standing mid-season, but came back strong in the last few races. “In the last leg of the championship there was a lot of track of Formula 1 which I have the advantage because I love this type of circuit.”
“In short, I save myself with the 3rd place covered which I could have lost without good consistency. I’m really happy with the Orion HPP team standings and congratulations to David Sirois for the championship!” he concluded.
