HOW TO MAKE A RACE ENGINEER JEALOUS

All of the excitement hasn't been confined to the Le Mans Series races this year for CRS Racing, as race engineer, Craig Dawson, found out yesterday.

The CRS boys were on track at Spa yesterday, running a test for Klaas Hummel and Chris Goodwin in the GT Open Ferrari 430. The test was a storming success, especially for Dutchman Klaas, who got within two seconds of Chris Goodwin's lap times around the daunting Spa-Francorchamps track.

"It all went to plan for us," said Hummel. "The car ran perfectly and I had the opportunity to do some qualifying runs on new tyres. This has taught me how to be more aggressive and helped me to find the limit of the car. I can't wait to try it out at Imola this weekend. The only downside to the day was that I upset Craig, my race engineer, when I told him who I had lunch with recently."

"We worked Klaas hard today and he didn't put a wheel wrong," said Dawson. "He's really fired up for the weekend and I think if he carries this pace through to Imola we will get a good result. He's learning fast and improving all the time. I'm especially pleased that he has done so well at one of the world's best driver's circuits."

During a break in testing Klaas showed Craig some photographs of a lunch he had just been to. He mentioned that a famous pop star was there but wasn't sure of her name. On closer inspection Craig realised he was looking at photos of none other than Cheryl Cole! Luckily Craig managed to contain his jealousy for long enough to complete the test.

The CRS GT team is now on its way to Imola for the third event in the 2010 International GT Open Series.
