Xero Competition Win Donington Open
Xero Competition won the Donington Open race this weekend with an astounding 53 second lead by the end of the 2 hour race.
Peter Le Bas started the race from second on the grid and after some problems with the brakes causing him to slip back at the start, he then began to claw back to the front. Ricky Cole took over before the 10 minute mandatory stop for re-fuelling and then had similar problems on the restart, not helped by starting off the racing line on the damper part of the track. Ricky also put in some quick laps, taking the lead before handing back to Peter Le Bas for the finish. Both drivers put in continuously fast laps throughout the race with Peter Le Bas eventually recording the fastest lap of the race.
"This is a fantastic end of the season for us, especially for me as this is one track I've never won at before! It is also extremely good to come away with fastest lap" Peter explained excitedly after the race. "The whole team deserved this; it's a perfect end to the year for us!" Dave Beecroft said.
Xero have already run in both the British GT championship and Belcar series this year, along with the Donington Open this is giving the team a feel for different championships. The team are currently looking at options for next year and considering possible championships both in the UK and Europe.
