ELMS 4h Barcelona ... Ferrari took second and third place


 

Maranello, 29th August 2022

An intense four hours of racing in Barcelona ended with the table-topping Proton Competition crew prevailing, the latest win allowing them to edge further away at the top of the general standings. The no. 77 Porsche staged a comeback, eventually moving into first place in the latter part of the race, crossing the finish line with a moderate margin over the first of the Ferrari 488 GTEs on track, the Spirit of Race-run no. 55 with David Perel, Duncan Cameron and Matthew Griffin, who now occupy second spot in the general standings some 27 points shy of the top. Third step of the podium went to JMW Motorsport’s no. 66 Ferrari crewed by the Giacomo Petrobelli, Sean Hudspeth and Miguel Molina trio, who were able to pull back after slipping down to fifth place. In the battle for first place, the no. 66 ended up in the gravel and subsequently had to serve a drive-through for having caused an accident.

Fourth place for the Kessel Racing Ferrari with Takeshi Kimura, Frederik Schandorff and Mikkel Jensen. Sixth place for Iron Lynx with Claudio Schiavoni, Matteo Cressoni and Davide Rigon, while ninth went to Pierre Ehret, Nicolas Varrone and Diego Alessi of the Rinaldi Racing team, hampered by a drive-through for having sent an opponent into a spin.

The Iron Dames immediately crashed out of the race with Sarah Bovy finishing against the wall in turn 2 after contact with Freddie Hunt’s no. 10 Ligier-Nissan Eurointernational.
