OFZ Rookie Tier Season 79
Today marks the end of the 79th Official Formula Zero Rookie Championship. The season saw only 2 race winners, but a close fight for 3rd.
Alexander Moss dominated the season and won the drivers championship with a lead of 244 points, clinching the constructors title for Spartan Racing in the process.
Moss won all but one race, where he started on the wrong tires and eventually ran out of fuel due to a series of bad luck and management errors. This is where Fadlan Chandrawinata took the opportunity to score his first and only win, which will most likely be his last as Clover Motorsport had to let him go to make room for their new lineup.
Meanwhile Hydrolux and Lucha were trading blows trying to secure 3rd place in the constructors, that would eventually be decided by a mere 7 points in favor of Hydrolux.
Adrian ter Bottas (Spartan Racing) took second place in the drivers, while Florian Visser (Clover Motorsport) came third. Despite their strong showing, neither of them will be having a seat in the OFZ anymore.
This season also saw the addition of a new, up and coming team called "Panda Express", which might just be the best name any outfit ever had.
Both Clover Motorsport and Spartan Racing will start in Pro tier next season, where they hope to keep their momentum up. With the two dominant rivals gone, Rookie tier is very competitive now and its hard to say who will come out on top. It will surely be exciting!
