You are currently viewing Tough Battles and Victory at Le Castellet in the Ligier European Series

A busy schedule was in place for the team during Friday in Le Castellet with both practice and qualifying for the three JSP4 cars. Car #1 topped both practice sessions, closely followed by the #66 car. Car #32, with newcomers Paris Stavrakidis and Umberto d’Amato, were getting comfortable in the car and consistently building pace during the sessions.

The team achieved a double pole when Theo Micouris and Pedro Juan Moreno went fastest in their respective qualifying sessions. With a tight battle between the two cars, a friendly rivalry was starting to grow between the teammates.

Excitement brewed during Saturday at Paul Ricard. Race 1 met some misfortune for both car #1 and #66; after suffering damages on the #66 and a penalty on car #1, the team only managed to score P3 and P7 respectively. Race 2 was filled with a very tight field and competitive battles on track. Both cars were running high in the order when the #66 experienced electronical failure and had to retire from the race. Starting from P4, car #1 had to battle through the field and was the first to cross the finish line, marking the third victory for Haydn Chance and Theo Micouris, extending their championship lead.

The next round of the Ligier European Series will be at Le Mans on the 13th and 15th.
