Overall victory for the PK Corvette on BBS wheels

Kurt Mollekens took the chequered flag in his PK Corvette Z06 GT1 on BBS wheels as winner of the 61th edition of the 24 Hours of Spa yesterday afternoon. This edition of the 24 Hours Spa, the highlight of the FIA GT Championship which was the last one for the current GT1 cars, was really awesome. After a great fight with the SRT Corvette, which encountered some technical problems, the PK Corvette driven by Mollekens/Kumpen/ Menten/Hezemans obtained a very important victory taking the lead in the 2009 FIA GT Championship. For BBS this is already the 5th overall victory in this event since the 24 Hours of Spa became again an endurance race for GT cars in 2001.

Class victories for other BBS customers:

In the GT2 class victory went also to a car on BBS wheels, the AF Corse Ferrari F430 GT2 driven by Bruni/Vilander/Melo/Compenc. The Matech Ford GT/GT3 on BBS wheels driven by Mutsch/Martin/ Wyss/Hennerici took victory in the G3 class.

We of course congratulate all the winners of this edition of the 24 Hours of Spa.
