OWRL S2 Season 20 race reports
Round 1: J.Lehikoinen takes maximum points from Kyoto National

The opening round of S2 Season 20 saw a familiar name occupying victory lane. 3id J. Lehikoinen started the defense of his title strong. After qualifying on pole J. Lehikoinen continued to lead the full sprint race. [SR] Joku managed to follow him for the first half of the race before the gap grew in the second part. Winning the sprint race means a 8th place starting position for the main race. When the Finnish driver is in form, he quickly moves through the field to the front and at Kyoto, J. Lehikoinen was in form. By the end of lap 1 he was in 4th and early in lap 3 the reigning champion had the lead, winning the race well ahead of CoRe S.Anttonen and SR bLb.

The only hope J. Lehikoinen gave his opponents was when he showed that he is human after all, after he spun out on the curbs of the first chicane. Even with that moment, the gap to P2 was much bigger on server 1 than on server 2. [SR] eiwer let his opponents come within one second in the final laps of the sprint race but the held on to take his debut OWRL victory. In the main race, the SRT in-team battle between Flip and Tobi went in favor of Flip.

Round 2: CoRe S.Anttonen takes championship lead in South City

A great day for the CoRe team in South City. As the dust settled from the races on South City Long rev, CoRe T.Lähteenmäki had won the main race and CoRe S.Anttonen took the lead in the drivers championship and furthermore the team gathered enough points to take the lead in the team standings. It did not took that rosy after just the sprint race. GenR.Klaidas first took an important pole in the qualifying session and then kept the lead despite pressure from S.Anttonen and teammate Joonas at the start. Even with S.Anttonen staying within a second almost the whole race, Klaidas kept the lead unchallenged and took victory the his first chance he got this season.

After a decent podium finish in the sprint race for one CoRe driver, the day turned from good to great during the main race. T.Lähteenmäki immediately took the lead from P2 at the start of the main race and never looked back. S.Anttonen got spun out on lap 1 but then drove an excellent recovery to fifth, unsurprisingly setting the fastest lap of the race and taking the championship lead in the process. Meanwhile on the second server, the sprint race was decided with another interteam battle by SRT drivers Tobi and Flip, with this time Tobi taking the win. It was an exciting finish to the race after AA™|Frozeni lead up to lap 8 before losing it as he struggle with hot tyres, then just finishing ahead of pod.Germanpio for the final podium position. The main race was decided much earlier in the race as Bandes took P1 after only a couple of laps and took a massive victory in FOX terms: over 10 seconds.
