Infinity Sports Management bring home silverware from Macau

After an epic weekend of racing, Infinity Sports Management stood on the prestigious Macau GP podium with Logan Sargeant in his debut at the Asian street circuit.

he 66th edition of the stand-alone FIA F3 World Cup event provided plenty of positives for the Infinity squad, with top-10 finishes and a podium secured.

After an intense qualifying battle split into two sessions, all of Infinity’s drivers had cemented top-20 positions on the grid for the qualification race.

When the time for lights out came on Saturday, David Beckmann secured himself a ninth-place finish with Logan in sixth. It was a more challenging outing for two time Macau GP winner Dan Ticktum who had to retire from the race due to a collision on the first corner which blocked the track. Oli Caldwell and Max Fewtrell, who were both making their debut at Macau, also got caught up and in that incident and were hoping for a better luck and a stronger race on Sunday.

For the Macau Grand Prix, Dan made up great ground from the back of the 30 car grid to cross the line in a respectable 13th position. David claimed an impressive 9th, Max finished 18th and unfortunately Oli was forced to retire on Lap 3.

Logan got a rapid start from the line and was able to improve on his sixth-place qualifying race result by taking two cars from the off. He was running in fourth until he performed a fantastic overtake on Christian Lundgaard on Lap 9 at the infamous Lisboa Corner to put him in contention for a podium.

With 15 laps of great defensive driving at the unforgiving circuit complete, Logan crossed the line in third position to earn his first podium on his debut in Macau - something that few drivers have achieved.

"I had a decent-enough start," Logan said. "I got a good run through Mandarin and I think I picked up a couple of positions. And then it was just a case of picking them off one by one and trying to catch the leaders. The VSC was a bit of a shame and halted my progress a little but I'm still really happy. We'll be back next year to try and win."
“I am really proud of the team for their efforts in Macau,” Garry Catt added. “It was a very demanding weekend and our drivers did well. Logan’s podium on his debut there is a standout moment and it is excellent to see his hard work being rewarded.”
