IAF Formula 1 CareerEdit
ICARA Career Edit
Erik vun Trau is the official worst-luck racer this season: moved from Kepern-Hodges to the burgeoning Kunghai team, he was unable to convert many top-10 qualifying positions into actual high race finishes, while his team mate finished in the top-10 of the season. To make matters worse, vun Trau sustained an injury in Eastern Delgamia, and had to sit out the entire rest of the season to allow for his recovery.
The traumatic injury suffered during the 304AP season ended up sidelining vun Trau for the entire 305AP ICARA season. With nowhere left to turn in the world of open-wheel racing, vun Trau made the jump to the RZOEAZ, signing with Harrysun Motorsports to drive the team's No. 5 Straymahq. He made no starts in the ICARA series in 305AP.
With the RZOEAZ abruptly on hiatus beginning in 306AP, vun Trau returned to ICARA, resuming his driving duties with Kunghai. In retrospect, the 306AP ICARA season was the high point of vun Trau's career, with five wins and finishing as points runner-up by only a single point at the end of the year!
After an incredible 306AP season where he finished 2nd in the points standings, vun Trau returned to Kunghai to try to improve on his previous year's finish. He started off the 307AP season where he left off in 306AP, snagging a win and two podiums in the first five races. The rest of the season, though, fell apart, leaving vun Trau with a 9th place points finish for the year behind his teammate, Jacques Taniai, who won his second ICARA driver championship. The performances earned both drivers contract extensions with Kunghai into the 308AP season.
After a brief, and still inexplicable hiatus, vun Trau returned to the track in 315AP, filling in for the injured champion, Holice Demarca, for a single race in the CeltWare Royal Aurora 300 in Cruisana. The Zartanian veteran made it seem like he was never away, and impressively qualified the No. 12 car (No. 1 is reserved for the reigning champion only, that's why Erik opted to run his old No. 12) in the top-10, and ran within the points paying ranks all race, before running too high on cold tires after his third pit stop, kissing the wall in turn 2 and forcing him to retire.
316AP Season Edit
Vun Trau made a surprise full-time return to ICARA racing after over 3 years away from the series with the new Wesmeritéan team Frontiénacq. Vun Trau's experience was invaluable to the newly established team, although racing success was moderate. Vun Trau managed two podium finishes, and one win in a Q-Race. He clearly got the better of his rookie team mate Adelaide Saray-Sadora, however.
