The epic begins.....

POUCHELON RACING SPA 24h FREE TEST 1

CAR 113 - DUQUEINE/LESSOUDIER/ROUSSELOT/LACROIX

The team decided not to run in this session as plenty of time is available to us in both the 24h and GT3 sessions today, 8 ½ hours in total.

CAR 114 - REID/KHAN/VAN SLPUNTEREN/DUMAREY

Reid drove a few laps bedding in new brakes and systems checking Car 114. Some electrical gremlins brought him in after 13 laps and the team decided to work on a solution rather than keep trudging round. Reid was amazed to have gone faster than the Porsche GT3 no. 117 "they must have left the handbrake on" was his considered opinion.

Pouchelon Racing is undertaking what is probably a first for the Viper SRT- 10 this weekend by tackling 26 hours of racing. This comprises 2 one-hour FIA GT3 Championship races plus the Spa 24h - a round of the FIA GT Word Championship. It certainly represents a lot of firsts for team; first season in international racing, first race in FIA GT World Championship and first 24h race. Team leader Alex Pouchelon is the man responsible for delivering this ambitious programme "no other FIA GT3 team is attempting this, the workload is enormous". But he feels the challenge is worth it "we have great hopes of more podiums in the GT3 races and we simply want to complete our first 24h race. If we can achieve this much that will be a great success for Pouchelon Racing".
