Victory at Magny Cours With very little testing, no-one really knew what to expect before qualifying. The number 51 Ginetta eventually ended the hour long session in 2nd.

Pedro started the 6 hour race and did a good, quick stint, eventually handing the Ginetta over in 2nd. Next it was Ben’s turn, and some quick laps early on put him right on the tail of the leader. Just as he was about to make a move, the leading BMW was taken out by an over optimistic Porsche, ending what could have been a great battle. This left the Escuela Española de Pilotos run car in a comfortable lead, cemented by a good stint from Francisco to take another victory.

Ben was delighted afterwards; “It was a great race. We had very good pace, it was a shame the BMW was taken out, ending what could have been a really good battle, but these things happen. I’m really pleased to help Francisco and Pedro take the championship. They’ve had a great year.”
