Victory in the second split for Adam and Nico in the broadcast timeslot! What a great result. Congratulations to both of them. The stamina and absolute will to achieve something good here is incredibly impressive.
There’s the Nürburgring, there’s Daytona, Belle Isle or Suzuka. Nevertheless, the race at Bathurst is very likely to be the most difficult of the whole year. Nowhere else do you get as close to the guard rails at such a high average speed as here. Accordingly, nowhere else it is that important just to get through. This is also proven by the fact that out of an average of 50 starters per split more than 20 cars dropped out in each of them!
Yet, we are more than pleased that one of our cars was able to take a victory.
After initial difficulties, the #155 took advantage of exactly the circumstance of the failures and just by rolling through. Therefore they were able to win the race in the end with a narrow 30 second lead.
The cars with the #255 and the #555 unfortunately both did not survive the first hour of the race, as on the one hand they were victims of a pile-up in lap 1 and on the other hand were sent through a netcode in the 7 GMT timeslot and in a later one got dived in a way we have not seen it before. So it was to the garage way to early for both of the cars.
All in all, we are of course very happy with the result of the #155, but unfortunately a small drop of bitterness remains, because the racing standards, especially at the beginning of the race were again anything but good.
Next one up is IVRA Endurance and HyperX who both kick in the upcoming weekend.
