Oyster Bay’s Ryan Tveter Maintains 8th Place Standing

Ryan Tveter finished 12th and 11th in the 25-minute races, Saturday and Sunday afternoon at the Formula Renault 2.0 Northern European Cup at Most Autodrom.

“Unfortunately I had pit-limiter failure on the formation lap,” Tveter said in a statement about Saturday’s 12th place finish. “It was stuck on when I started the engine on the grid, so I was limited to 60 kilometers per hour. I was finally able to get it off by fully resetting the car and turning the power completely off. But by the time I fully reset the car on the formation lap I was last, and was relegated to the back of the grid for the start.”

The results mean Tveter, maintains his eighth-lace standing in the driving championship with the Game Ready Injury Treatment Systems #16. He’s now 24 points behind one of his teammates, Sweden’s Gustav Malja, who is currently seventh, and 10 points ahead of the driver who is currently ninth, Great Britain’s Jake Hughes

Tveter’s next event is a Formula Renault 2.0 Eurocup weekend Sept. 12-14 at Hungaroring, Hungary. That series also appears at Paul Ricard in France Sept. 26-28 and at Jerez, Spain Oct. 17-19.
