SNORAS Spyker Squadron driver Tom Coronel will be joined by Benjamin Leuenberger in the 1000 km race tomorrow. Swiss driver Benjamin Leuenberger will replace Jarek Janis after he suffered from an old neck injury. Spyker Squadron team management decided it was better for Jarek not to drive.

This afternoon the team found Alexandre Pesci, Spyker partner and team owner of Swiss Speedy Racing, prepared to use one of his LMP2 drivers to drive the Spyker GT2 car in tomorrow’s race. Benjamin drives a Lola LMP2 Coupe this year with Jonny Kane and Xavier Pompidou. The Swiss team will race tomorrow with two drivers.

The team feels very sorry for Jarek, he did do very well this weekend. We are grateful that Alexandre Pesci and Benjamin Leuenberger positively replied to our call for help.
