Adam Christodoulou Spa Race Report

Spa-Francorchamps circuit

Mixed Fortunes in Spa

Adam Christodoulou was on track in Belgium with CRS Racing this weekend for the 1000kms of Spa; the second round of the Intercontinental Le Mans Cup and the Le Mans Series.

Sharing the drive of the No.82 CRS Ferrari with Klaas Hummel and Phil Quaife, the race proceeded well for the majority of the distance but was interrupted by an unfortunate incident in the closing stages.

Phil took the start and immediately worked his way into second place. He later took the lead, passing the No.67 Porsche. Adam was next in the driving seat, and kept the car ahead of the pack throughout his run. Klaas was last up and put in a great drive, running in third place and heading for a podium finish when, with just five minutes to go, he was hit by an FLM car which resulted in substantial damage to the Ferrari and it spelt the unfortunate end of the race for car No.82.

“CRS had a great weekend right up until five minutes before the end of race,” said Team Principal, Andrew Kirkaldy. “No.82 had an exceptional race with the car leading over 80% of the time. The Le Mans Series is a big step up for Klaas Hummel this year and he drove an outstanding race. After so many years it’s still hard to believe how cruel motor racing can be. Everyone in the team did an excellent job and we now look forward to Le Mans.”
