1000km Palanga 20-23 July 2016

From Disaster to Success in Palanga!

When the Marcos was crashed badly in Free Practice, things looked pretty grim for drivers Cor Euser, Jim Briody and Stasys Brundza, but the team had an ace up their sleeve! Tucked away in the race trailer was the old BMW E36 318ti – let’s race with that! With the help of a flexible organiser and a slight adjustment of the roll-cage, the #70 was moved from the wrecked Marcos to the Compact. Still racing in the X1 class with the likes of an Aquila CR1, the odds were not high, but as always – we’re in it to win it!

Steady does it; outpaced by all but two other cars in the entire 40 car field, the little Compact made its laps, again and again, while many other cars needed extra pitstops for repairs or simply eliminated themselves, the Compact kept going. In fact, so well that in the end we came P2 in class only beaten by the Aquila who also came P2 overall!

Technical gremlins spoiled 24H Oschersleben for Cor Euser Racing

Good old trustworthy BMW 120D did not want to do 24H Oschersleben!

Cor Euser (NLD), Hal Prewitt (USA), Jim Briody (USA), Dirk Schultz (DEU) and David Hannewijk (NLD) spent most of the first 5 hours of the race hoping that the team would be able to replace the engine that gave up in lap 2. Of course the team succeeded, they never give up, and the drivers could set off to try and avoid the very last place in the field. In the end it held to 6th place (of 9) in the Sport class (28th of 36 overall).

16647388654_f131d32218_oHere is how Hal Prewitt summarized the event:

Raced at the Silverstone Circuit in the 24 hours of Silverstone and drove the Lotus Evora GT4 for Marcos Racing International. Other drivers were Sam Alpass, Dirk Schulz, Alistair MacKinnon and Jim Briody. The No. 37 Drink Florida Orange Juice finished 3rd overall and 2nd in class. In 2011, our team was on the podium with the same result. This time we finished 5 laps from 2nd and 10 from 1st overall. Car ran trouble free. I drove about +5 hours in 3 stints and finished the race. Event was a mix of wet and dry conditions. Rain started Sat just after dark and the track did not dry out until Sunday morning near 8 am. This year our lap times were about 2 seconds lower (reduced power to save fuel) or about mid pack with 17 cars able to turn faster laps. Qualified with a 2:18.549 and started 16th overall. 14 cars finished out of 28 starts. We completed 519 laps with most about 2:24 and the quickest at 2:18.581 by Sam.
