Spyker finish 7th at 1000km of Spa

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:

UPDATE: Sounds like madness over there during the first few hours at Spa. Like a sackfull o’ grandpappies.
SQDN_2010_avatar_bigger.jpg Now that Victor Muller and Jan-Ake Jonsson have finished up at the Mille Miglia, attention turns to the Spyker Squadron and their entry into the 1000km of Spa, in Belgium.
The race got underway an hour or so ago and whilst there’s been a number of crashes and a couple of safety cars already, the guys are going well and keeping it shiny side up – exactly what you need to do in an endurance event.
If you’re on Twitter, or even if you aren’t, you can hit up their Twitter feed (@spykersquadron) and follow their progress. The updates are coming in with great frequency so you’ll always be right up to date with what’s going on.
From yesterday, here’s in-car video of their qualifying lap. Spa is such a magnificent track.
It was very close at the top, with only around 1.2 seconds separating the first 12 places.

Spyker Squadron update from 24hrs of Spa

I love having a(nother) fully fledged racing team to cheer for. More of it, please!
Whilst Victor Muller is rocketing around Italy in his Saab 93, the team from Spyker Squadron have been busy practicing for the 24 hour race at Spa this weekend and have posted a video lap, as well as a few photos on their Flickr site.
Video first, photo below.
