The lights will go green for the Total 24 Hours of Spa on Saturday, July 27th at 4:30 pm precisely. The entire race will be streamed live on the official website at http://www.total24hours.com.
Dr Florian Kamelger, Team Principal: “Grid slots 13 and 14 were the maximum possible for Jake and Maxime today. However, I would like to point out that they were both within fifteen hundredths of a second of one another and just a little more than two tenths off a place in the Top Ten. As a result, we’ve achieved decent positions on the grid in the race with our two Aston Martin Vantages in the Pro category. We were also very pleased with the performance of our crew in the #762 Aston Martin which notched up the second-best result in the Silver Cup class with grid position 29.”
