LMP2 still missing a top position in SCO
GT3 celebrates comeback in the SCO
At the beginning of the racing year 2022, the Sports Car Open Series kicked off with the 6 Hours of Red Bull Ring.
For the first time this season, we brought a car to the start in both classes.
With the new additions (read here if you missed it) there will now also be a Lamborghini GT3, in the already very strong GTD field.
In qualifying, Daniel Sommer placed the GT3 on the 25th position. The LMP2 was placed 12th by Timo Heyden.
As expected, there were several collisions during the 6h race. At the beginning of the race, both cars were actually able to avoid this very well.
Timo did make a small mistake in turn 4 but nevertheless drove the car to a good 8th place in the meantime.
Unfortunately, Daniel, Fern and Raymon's GT3 had to be parked about halfway through the race. The reason for this was a previous collision that they could not avoid. Too bad for the GT3, because at this point it looked like a very good series comeback.
Lee Morris took over the LMP2 for the last 3 1/2 hours. Due to a collision with a lapped LMP2, he got a drive-through penalty which did not affect the final result. They finished the 6 hours in 10th place. The team is not yet satisfied. The luck in the individual races is missing so far to achieve very good results.
The next event of the SCO will take place on 05.02.2022. It goes to Belgium to the Circuit de Spa-Francorchamps!
