Lotus Praga LMP2 Preview to the 6 Hours of Sao Paulo
Lotus Praga LMP2 is back in action at the fourth round of the FIA World Endurance Championship. After a two-month break, the team is heading to Brazil for the 6 Hours of Sao Paulo.
The Autodromo José Carlos Pace in Interlagos is located between two large artificial lakes situated on the outskirts of Sao Paulo city. The 4,309 km lap is a physical challenge for the drivers, who have to race anti-clockwise. The high altitude of the track and the low air density will make it difficult for the car and the drivers as well.
The race starts on Sunday, 01st September, at 12:00 hours local time (17:00 hours CEST).
“I had a nice summer break and I am ready and looking forward to getting back in the Lotus Praga LMP2 car at Interlagos. The circuit is interesting and very challenging as it runs anti-clockwise and you are quiet active during the whole lap. As it runs in the opposite direction, your neck muscles get a good workout. We are hopeful for a good result as our new car is continually improving and we are progressing in the right direction.”
Thomas Holzer, Race Driver #32:
“I am looking forward to racing in Interlagos. The track is difficult because you don’t get a chance to rest and even the start-finish-straight is a bend. Our pace at Le Mans was good and hopefully we can keep on progressing. I hope that we can have a good result and I am looking forward to being back in the car.”
