Cor Euser Racing wins with Lotus while BMW is faster

#IMG_1322Following up the great result from 24H Silverstone, Cor Euser Racing secured another triumph at the 12H Zandvoort. Hal Prewitt, Sam Allpass, Huub Delnoij and Cor Euser did everything right to bring home the SP3 class win in the Lotus Evora GT4. For a long time the Aston Martin Vantage GT4 of Speedworks Motorsport and the Porsche 997 Cup GT4 of APO Sport gave the Lotus really hard competition, but a brilliant pit-stop strategy, highly efficient pit-stops and refueling, and of course faultless performance by all drivers gave Cor Euser Racing the upper hand, crossing the finishing line 4 laps ahead of the Aston Martin. Amazingly, this was also enough to land a 9th overall, in a field with 10 GT3s, 7 Porsche Cups and 3 Silhouette cars, all rated faster than the GT4s!

#IMG_4694Cor Euser Racing’s new A5 class BMW E46 M3, driven by Hal Prewitt, Simon Atkinson, Huub Delnoij and Cor Euser also made quite a debut! Having struggled a bit in the tests leading up to the race weekend – race cars don’t like standing still for years – nobody really knew what the car could do. That was before Cor Euser took it out for the final push during qualifying, and put in a 1:50.303 – even squeezing in front of the Lotus (1:50.611)!

Unfortunately, a few more gremlins popped up during the race, so to avoid the risk of damaging sensitive parts, the team decided to retire the car after 203 laps. A pity, as the qualifying P2 was clearly an indication that the car has podium potential!

All in all a very successful weekend, thanks to the team and drivers, our fans and sponsors for making it fun and possible!

Next up is 24H Paul Ricard 10-12/7; we have all intentions of winning again!

We have driver seats available on both cars – do you want to win with us?
