Excellent Victory in 4 Hours of Motorland The weekend couldn’t have got off to a better start for the newly formed duo, with the number 15 Mosler setting the fastest time in all 3 practice sessions and the British driver going fastest in qualifying too. The grid is formed from the average of the 2 drivers fastest lap times in qualifying, which placed them 2nd in the strong grid, setting them up well for the 4 hour enduro.

Alberto started the race and after a superb opening, stint was running 2nd when he handed the car over to the Northampton based driver. With problems for the leading car and fast, consistent laps from Ben, it wasn’t long before the duo had a commanding lead. Good stints continued throughout the 4 hour race by both drivers, seeing them take a stunning victory.

Ben was elated afterwards “Wow, what a weekend! It really couldn’t have gone any better. Fastest in all practices, fastest in qualifying, a race win, and fastest race lap, that doesn’t come along very often! I’m ecstatic, the race went perfectly, Alberto did superbly and it is both our first wins in this class in the VdeV Series. Not a bad weekend for our first ever race together! I couldn’t be happier, it was great to race with Alberto and I hope he has good results in the remaining races of the season, with the confidence this win will have given him.
