YAN & MICHAEL DRIVE TO P2 IN SPORTS CAR OPEN
Sports Car Open moved onto the penultimate round of the championship, the 6 Hours of Spa. After a very close qualifying session, Yannick put the lone Porsche in P4, with all manufacturers represented in the Top 4.
A tense opening couple of hours saw a very close race with KOVA, Urano and the Ferrari of newcomer Energy Simsport, but by the time of our driver change at the two hour mark, Yan handed over the car to Michael in P2 with a slender 2 second lead to the chasing pack and a 20 second gap to leaders Team Redline.
The key to the race was managing the traffic periods with minimal time loss, and both Yan & Michael did an exceptional job of managing this despite a few dicey mixed class moments.
We were able to manage the second half very well to minimise our losses to the leaders, and extend our gap to the chasing pack to record a very satisfying 2nd place finish by the race's end. We now move to 6th in the standings with 1 round to go.
