Real World Racing – Blancpain Endurance Silverstone, 03/05/2012 Full Race Video.

 

 

Blancpain Endurance Silverstone, UK 3rd June 2012 Full Race.

For the second consecutive round of the Blancpain Endurance Series, the Marc VDS Racing BMW squad of Markus Palttala (FIN) and Belgian pair Bas Leinders and Maxime Martin scored victory in the wet – this time a sodden Silverstone.

As it had done at Monza in the opening round, the Belgian team’s pit stop went like clockwork and the drivers made no mistakes to produce an impressive result.
On a rain-soaked Silverstone weekend, 50 cars were lined up for the main event. The battle between the Britons was intense with a total of 9 McLarens and 33 British drivers among an international field.

In the end it was the Belgian Marc VDS Racing team which prevailed in the PRO class.
In the PRO-AM category, Peter Kox (NLD) and Marc A. Hayek (CHE) combined for a brilliant win in the Blancpain-Reiter Lamborghini LP600. The pair were fourth overall.
The all-Swedish JB Motorsport Audi R8 LMS of Mikael Bender, Jan Brunstedt and Jocke Mangs won the Gentleman Trophy class.
