The second half of the 2017 calendar will kick off with a milestone race at Russia’s sports capital: Kazan. It’s a first for the series – but for some pilots down in the points, it will also be the last chance to make a charge for this year’s World Championship.
With only four races to go in a wildly competitive season, the pressure is on. Any one of the international race teams still has a chance to win it all, but favorites are emerging, and tight skirmishes are shaping up within segments of the leaderboard as well. One triumph, or one devastating penalty for exceeding maximum G, could rock the standings.
