Enge won at Silverstone and is runner-up of the GT1
Tomas Enge won his third race of the Le Mans Series season today at Silverstone but even this step was not enough to get the title. The numbers say that together with Spaniard Antonio Garcia and Team Modena they are the runner-up of the GT1 class. The team was anyway delighted to win on the home turf. Enge started the race from the second place but soon moved to the lead with an Aston Martin DBR9 and they kept it till the checquered flag.
Tomas Enge: "It was again a great race. I started second but got by Peter Kox after lap 8 and built a gap. Our Aston Martin DBR9 was running well and we had a gap of 30 seconds after the first stint. We did not have any major issue, so we built a gap of one lap. We used well also yellow phases. As we had said before the start our aim was to win and then wait for result of our biggest competitors. They scored points so we did not get the title. However, I had a very nice yaer in the Le Mans Series. It was nice to work with Antonio, I would be happy to race again with him in the future. Three wins out of five races are pleasant, especially today's one. Out team Modena is based in Silverstone and it is always great to win at home."
