CRS Doubles Up For Battle Of The Ardennes - 05.05.2011

Both the Le Mans Series and the Intercontinental Le Mans Cup head to Belgium this weekend for the 1000kms of Spa.  With one car entered in each championship, CRS will run two Ferrari 430s side-by-side for the first time this year in the GTE-Am class.

 

For the No.62 driving squad of Pierre Ehret, Shaun Lynn and Roger Wills, Spa is the warm up event for the big one in June: the Le Mans 24 Hours.  After the recent Le Mans Test Day all three drivers are eager to get back on track and hope to bag some points in Belgium, as Roger explains:

 

“I’m very much looking forward to Spa,” said Roger. “It’s a track I know well as I won the GT4 class at the 24 Hours here last year as well as numerous historic wins over the past 4 seasons. This is our last event before we head to Le Mans, which will be the highlight of the season for us. On the back of the test weekend I am really positive about our pace and am sure that with a consistant run we can pick up some good points in the championship."

 

The No.82 CRS Ferrari of Klaas Hummel, Adam Christodoulou and Phil Quaife was on for an exceptional result at the Paul Ricard LMS round a few weeks ago but hit trouble in the pits when the starter motor faltered.  This time out, says Adam Christodoulou, they are gunning for the podium:

 

“We just missed out on the podium at Ricard,” said Adam. “The team has been working hard since then to solve the starter motor problem and I don’t see any reason why we can’t go to Spa and get a top result.  We’ve all raced there before and the team knows it well.  We showed we had the pace at Ricard so we’re looking forward to getting out there and getting a good result.”

 

The six-hour race gets underway at 1405hrs on Saturday 7 May. Catch the later stages of the race on Eurosport or listen to the whole race live at www.radiolemans.com.
