TEAM BRUICHLADDICH RADICAL CLAIMS LMP2 POINT

Team Bruichladdich Radical made a fantastic start moving up to third place on the opening lap of the race but delight was short-lived when Stuart Moseley was sent into a spin by a rival LMP2 car. Stuart rejoined the track at the back and through his first stint made his way through the slower GT traffic handing over to Tim Greaves seventh in class and 17th overall having made his way past 28 cars. Tim had a relatively event-free stint setting a good steady pace before Jacob Greaves took to the wheel for his first ever race in the SR9 and Le Mans Series. Jacob had two minor incidents but neither damaging the car. Stuart then drove for another trouble free session before handing back to Tim for the final run. Tim drove consistently again crossing the line eighth in class to take another point in the Series.

Jacob Greaves, driver

"I've really enjoyed it. This has been a great experience. Everything happens very fast and you have to have your wits about you. It's not just the slower cars - you've got to deal with them as well as looking out for the faster LMP1 cars. It was very hard physically but fantastic."

Stuart Moseley, driver

"I was really pleased with the car after we didn't get to quite where we wanted to be in qualifying. The balance was really good throughout. I was still getting close to '41s' to the end of the stints. I think the car was closer to the qualifying pace than in any of our other races which was excellent."

Tim Greaves, Team Owner and driver

"It's great to get another finish and show our reliability. It was just a shame that we lost those places at the start of the race which put us on the back foot. The LMP2 field is so strong and none of them made the big mistake we needed to regain that time. There was a lot of debris on the track which made it quite slippery and difficult so I'm pleased with the point and that Jacob put in a credible performance on his debut."
