Race History And ResultsEdit
Performance Race #1 - South African GP The season started off with the first round of performance races: The South African GP. Tyrant Motorsports, looking to make an impression, made a decent start in the sprint race when O'Brien challenged for the lead into the first few corners. O'Brien was able to hold onto 3rd until lap 8, where he was passed by SRS driver Ellen Seys. Domenech stayed inside the top 10, but was unable to improve throughout the race. The full race started off well for both drivers, and both were lucky to avoid the drama that occured on the first lap. O'Brien took a few positions, while Domenech held his position as they entered the third lap. Later on, Domenech found himself battling with one of the Tafuro drivers, while O'Brien was quietly working his way up the field to be as high as 3rd before having to take his final stop.
Results: O'Brien - Sprint: 6th, Full: 12th / Domenech - Sprint: 10th, Full: 8th
Performance Race #2 - Kazakhstan GP
The Kazakhstan GP sprint race started off brilliantly for both drivers as Domenech moved into the lead, and O'Brien move up into 3rd. The race ran without any problems until lap 10, when Domenech made contact with VTR driver Carlos Rodriguez, putting the VTR driver into a spin. This move would start a chain of rumors that stated that Tyrant Motorsports were "Dirty Cheaters". Domenech was able to keep the car together and proceeded to win the sprint race, while O'Brien kept his cool to finish 6th. Both drivers didn't really get good starts in the full race, and would hang around the back end of the top 20 until the pitstops started taking place. In the later stages of the race, both drivers were overwhelmed by other drivers, and lost a few positions.
Results: O'Brien - Sprint: 6th, Full: 13th / Domenech - Sprint: 1st, Full: 17th

By the end of the race, Domenech found himself outside the top 10, while O'Brien dominated out front to win his first sprint race. The full race was uneventful for both drivers.
