Another podium for Richard Westbrook. The Racing Team Morellato driver came third in Barcelona and keeps his lead on the championship.
Barcelona, Catalunya circuit: A shining sun, a welcoming crowd and a very nice race, with surprises, over takings, off tracks... The Porsche Supercup was at its best Sunday in the Grand Prix of Spain. A double from Kadach Racing Team, David Saelens 1st and Fabrice Wallfish 2nd. Richard Westbrook is third. The Morellato Stars Team driver, also third on the grid, took a poor start which left him 5th on the first corner. Westbrook rapidly reclaimed position 4, before an impressive duel with Uwe Alzen, whom Westbrook finally overtook three laps before the end of the race.
"I think it was a good race. Uwe is a master, he made it very difficult for me to overtake him. But I'm third, I score 16 points, it's good for the championship." Third on the grid, third on the finish line, Richard Westbrook is still the leader of the Porsche Supercup. His team mate,
Olivier Maximin, is now 11th in the championship after finishing 10th in Barcelona, his first top ten in the Supercup. "I made a pretty good start, considering I was on the dirty side of the track. Then, I had some rough laps with Bleekemolen, which slowed me down. After that, I just concentrated on the trajectories. My best lap is only 0.4 seconds slower than the winner, so I'm improving."
Kristian Ghedina too is improving. The former ski champ is 17th. " I'm happy, I finished the race, I was able to overtake some cars, it's perfect. I hope I'll come back to drive again for the Morellato Stars Team." And the last word from the 4th Morellato driver in Barcelona, Dick Postel: "I had fun. I was able to finish the race, I didn't crash the car, I enjoyed racing and above all it's my birthday. It's just perfect!"
