Joel had an unlucky Spanish race day.
Swiss German duo Joel Camathias (25) and Marc Lieb (26), driving #76 Autorlando- Sport Porsche 996 GT3 RSR, had to retire after only 1h and 40min race for a gearbox problem. Despite both drivers have been very fast and consistent all weekend long, with a pole-position in qualifying too, they had to stop when they were easily leading the race.
"Of course this is a pity, but as we know, this is racing. We are the Team and Drivers GT2 Le Mans Series 2006 Champions and this is the most important! I would like to thank again my Autorlando family [Autorlando-Sport squad], my extraordinary team- mate [Marc Lieb], Porsche Motorsport and the Pirelli Tyres! A special and particular thanks goes to Mr. Redolfi [Autorlando-Sport Team Owner] for having given me such a great opportunity. "
Joel" future programs will be discuss in the next months. We will keep you up to date.
