Minassian targets victory at Spa Francorchamps
Nicolas Minassian and team-mate Jamie Campbell-Walter head to the final round of the Le Mans Endurance Series at the fabled Spa Francorchamps circuit, determined to bring Creation Autosportif its first victory in the category.
Minassian has qualified in the top four in every race so far and claimed the Pole Position at Nurburgring. For Minassian, so close to victory so many times this season, Spa Francorchamps offers him and the team the chance to show the pace of the `blue rocket' around the magnificent 6.973km circuit.
"It is good to be back at Spa, I haven't driven here since my F3000 days in 2000 and it will be a fantastic experience to come back in a sports car," enthused Minassian. "Creation will fix the problems we had at Silverstone and we hope to do a shakedown prior to the race, so I have no doubt that we will be back on the pace we have shown all season."
"Spa is one of the best circuits in the world and is always exciting for both drivers and fans alike and there is always a good fan base here, which I love."
With one podium position already notched up this year, Minassian is keen to take-all come race-day on September 12th.
"I have spent all season licking the edges of the trophy, this time I want to kiss it and finish the season on a high for both me and the team... it's time to kick some ass!"
