Xavi Vierge clinched his third top ten finish of the 2017 World Championship after producing a mature and accomplished ride in Austin, Texas today. The fired up 19 year old launched forward from 12th on the grid and jumped up four places by the close of the first lap. He then ran a formidable pace around the gruelling circuit throughout the 19 lap sprint, before eventually meeting the chequered flag in 9th. The result marks a positive finish to what was a testing weekend for the Spaniard, who notably sits in 5th in the championship standings.
Meanwhile, Julian Simon, who stood in for the injured Remy Gardner, suffered misfortune as his race finished at the first turn on the opening lap after he was taken out by Stefano Manzi. The Tech3 Racing Team would like to thank Julian Simon for his efforts over the Americas Grand Prix weekend.
