The first round of of the new season was held practically under the yellow,green and red flag of Lithuania - 3 drivers of this country practically dominated both qualifying and race. At the end Fast was the best of them,as he managed to make the important pass in lap 22 to retake the early lost lead,which he was able to defend until finish line,Fast picked up also both bonus points for fastest laps in both sessions. V.Laguckas spent the most race distance in 3rd place,but used a situation in last lap to upgrade his position,finishing 2nd. Dzidoris slipped by the polesitter in turn 2 and led the race for 21 laps until polesitter finally found the way to pass him. Dzidoris didn't gave up and tried to retake the lead,in final lap he tried so hard that he lost also 2nd place in process - was he too greedy or was it just a fluke,it's up to him to analyse.
After round 1 overall standings are of course the same as the race results - Fast leads the lithuanian trio with 4 points gap to V.Laguckas and 6 points gap to Dzidoris. Fast also has lead in Rookie of the Year standings - with 7 points gap to Skattle.
With only 2 teams having more than 1 driver attending,Teams Championship is led by both these teams - Born 2 Race is on top with 11 points gap over defending champions MTDZX with LLM in 3rd another 3 points back. When looking at newest signups,it seems like LLM is getting some reinforcements - let's see if the situation will change with their help. With 3 lithuanians filling the podium there are no doubts which country is leading the Nations Cup standings,as they scored all 30 possible points. Finland trails by 14 points while Chile became the 1st southern hamisphere country to be in top3 of AWS Nations Cup standings.
A total of 18 drivers joined 1st round of 2018 AWS,the number probably will drop in next round as some do not like it - slick tyres on unpaved surface is not really a proper combination,but years of AWS has proved that it is very drivable when using an all wheel drive car! The AWS "classic" round Blackwood Rallycross Grand Prix is next in AWS menu,with some preperation everyone should find a way to keep control over the car in the slippery conditions while keeping the tyres cool-ish in grippy conditions.
