UPDATE: Spyker Squadron have published their own race day report now, calling it a good dress rehearsal for LeMans.
Congratulations to the Spyker Squadron race team.
They turned a 12th place grid position at the start of the race into a 7th place finish at the 1000km race at Circuit de Spa-Francorchamps, in Belgium over the weekend. I’m sure they’d love to go higher, but a top 10 finish in any race is a decent placing and of course, this positive movement is good preparation for the big one – the 24 hours of LeMans in July.
The race at Spa was peppered with incidents, from crashes to a whole-of-track electrical blackout that killed even the reserve power systems, and kept teams in the pits for 30 minutes.
Here’s the Spyker Squadron race video:
