TEAM BRUICHLADDICH RADICAL ON TOP FORM IN GERMANY

Today saw the first day of track action in the Le Mans Series with Team Bruichladdich Radical making its mark as a front runner. In the first one-hour session Stuart Moseley put the Radical SR9 an impressive fifth overall and at the top of the LMP2 class. The time of 1 minute 47.914 was the best for the team today and is already one second faster than its qualifying time for the race here last year when the Team Bruichladdich Radical made its debut.

Session one closed with Radical having the two fastest LMP2 cars with Embassy Racing's SR9 just under two seconds behind the factory supported car. Tim Greaves drove in session two and continued to get comfortable with the track and car following set-up changes made in the break. Of the combined times from both sessions Team Bruichladdich Radical was second fastest behind the RML MG Lola and ahead of the Barazi Epsilon Zytek.

The team is on competitive form following a disappointing Le Mans and part of the strategy for keeping the momentum in the car's progress is to switch back to a two driver line-up. In particular Tim Greaves will get to build his experience with more time in the car at each event. A further one hour practice session and qualifying takes place tomorrow before Sunday's 1000km race.

Tim Greaves, Team Owner and driver

"It's good to be driving the SR9 on a track where we've been before. The car's feeling good and it's all credit to the team who have done a great job turning it round so quickly after Le Mans. We have a close link to the adjacent legendary Nordschleife with the road legal SR8 holding the lap record so hopefully its bigger sister can improve more tomorrow and put us in good shape for Sunday's race on the grand prix circuit."
