Gillet Vertigo singing in the rain

Belgian Racing took his second best result in the FIA GT Championship. Renaud Kuppens took the start behind the safety car in the rain but came in the pits at lap 1 to do the first of two mandatory driver changes. Bas Leinders took over the wheel of the Gillet Vertigo and charged from last to an unbelievable 6th position overall and battling for first position in the GT2.

Tony GILLET : "What Bas did today is really fantastic, he passed many GT2 cars but also many GT1 cars. The team did a very good job and also congratulations to them."

Renaud Kuppens finished of the race and brought home the car in a excellent 11th position.

Bas Leinders: "Maybe this was my best rain race ever, I just love driving in difficult conditions, especially on a street course, it separates the men from the boys. I would like to thank Pirelli for an excellent service and tires."

The next race will be in Monza in July.
