GT3gtwc prologue, spa : 2 test days

gtwc prologue, spa : 2 test days

No sooner had Misano packed up, … than we headed for the Belgian Ardennes for two days of testing: a lot of preparation has to be done before the 24H de Spa, which will take place on June 29 and 30, 2024. This event will be the 2nd meeting of the GT World Challenge Endurance Championship.

We are greeted by a downpour… We are indeed at Spa-Francorchamps. The laptimes are therefore of uncertain value.

The official Prologue to the double clock lap brought together 64 cars: no less than 16 hours of driving were spread over four sessions. There’s still a month to go before the start of testing for the centenary edition of the great Belgian endurance classic, which takes place from June 25 to 30.

Our team took the opportunity to test 3 drivers to prepare for the future: Sebastien Baud, Silver driver and 2 Gold drivers: Nico Bastian and Belgian Ulysse De Pauw.

Tuesday morning session:

  • Mercedes #9: P24 overall
  • Mercedes #10: P30 overall, P3 in Silver class

Tuesday afternoon session: 1st time in Silver

  • #9 : P19 overall
  • #10 : P9 overall, P1 Silver class

The rest of the program:

A soggy circuit to start Wednesday …

  • #9 : P3 overall
  • #10: P6 overall, P1 Silver class

Almost dry track for the afternoon session :

  • #9: P12 overall
  • #10 : P5 overall, P2 Silver

Two days during which our team gathered a maximum of information and data in preparation for the world’s greatest GT3 race!

See you at Spa 26 – 30 June 2024 !
