Spa 1000km 2011 - 08.05.2011

CRS Racing was on track in Belgium this weekend for the 1000kms of Spa. This race is the second round of the Intercontinental Le Mans Cup and the Le Mans Series.

 

The No.62 driving squad of Pierre Ehret, Shaun Lynn and Roger Wills finished in sixth place today in what was effectively their warm up event for next month’s Le Mans 24 Hours.

 

Roger started the race in eighth position and was soon settled into a good rhythm, running as high as third place during his run.  After his first pit stop he got back down to business but ten laps later his right rear tyre delaminated, forcing him to pit early for his second stop. At this point Pierre Ehret jumped in and put in a double stint, which saw him have a clean run before handing over to Shaun Lynn in sixth. Like Pierre, Shaun had a good run before he pitted to give the car to Roger who needed a final run to make sure he had completed the minimum driving time.

 

Roger reflected, “Unfortunately I think the tyre problem early on in the race today may have cost us a podium today. However we have picked up some good points in the championship and will go to Le Mans confident that we have the tools to do the job.”

 

Team Principal, Andrew Kirkaldy said  “Car 62 was looking very good in the race but had an early tyre issue. Other than that they would’ve come out with a very good result. Everyone in the team did an excellent job and we now look forward to Le Mans.”
