Natacha Gachnang had a busy and difficult day with a programme of two qualifying sessions and two races for the Formula Le Mans Cup which resumed this weekend at Silverstone.

Tthe young Swiss driver's team finished in the top eight and in the and top six in the second race. It was not enough though in the eyes of Natacha who was aiming for two podiums this weekend. Unfortunately for Natacha a problem with the differential prevented her from achieving her goal.

Natacha said, "To finish twice in the points in the same day isn't as great as it appears. I had good qualifying sessions. During the session, I was preoccupied with vibrations coming from the car, from yesterday's free practice. In truth if I had a few more laps I could have had pole. In the first race I lost time with a drive-thru penalty for going too fast in the pits. In the second race I was third and was passed because the car was sliding around a lot. I stabilised in fourth position when I handed the car over to my team mate Christophe. He then had a good battle on the track. Unfortunately we only finished sixth in the second race. The mechanics saw that the differential was damaged. At least I helped the team remain second in the championship. I will not be racing Formula Le Mans next weekend because the F2 series is back in action at Imola."
