Ben joins back up with his regular team for Motorland Aragon Everyone was confident after testing, as the number 10 Mosler had consistently been near the top of the timesheets with all the drivers setting fast times.

This followed through to qualifying with Ben setting pole in the final few moments of the session knocking the Ferrari 458 off top spot to everyone’s delight.

Francisco started the race and was doing a superb job keeping the car right up the front, setting consistently quick lap times, before disaster struck. A mechanical issue forced an early pitstop and valuable time was lost. A great effort from everyone within the team got the car back out before another issue during Pedro’s stint forced an early retirement.

Ben was disappointed afterwards “It was great to get the pole, it was just a shame we had the problems. I think we had a really good chance at fighting for a win today, as everyone was quick and the car was great. It’s just one of those things; it is what you expect with a new car. If we can carry on that sort of speed I’m sure we’ll be fighting for wins and podiums on a regular basis.”
