BLANCPAIN RACING ROBBED OF POTENTIAL VICTORY IN PIRELLI WORLD CHALLENGE AT BARBER

reiter-gallardo-rex-catsburg-pwc-barber-2nd

Reckless competitor forces Nick Catsburg and the Gallardo R-EX into gravel on the first lap.

An old proverb says that to finish first, first you have to finish. Unfortunately, a competitor in the Pirelli World Challenge field at Barber Motorsports Park chose to ignore these words of wisdom, and ended Nick Catsburg’s race early. The Blancpain Racing driver, who started the race from the front row, was looking to repeat the second place from the previous day. However, on only the second lap a competitor pushed another car into the Gallardo R-EX, which meant Catsburg had to drive through the gravel bed before returning to the pits to retire with damage to the rear right.

Blancpain Racing and Reiter Engineering now have about two weeks to repair the Gallardo R-EX and to travel to the next Pirelli World Challenge event at the Canadian Tire Motorsports Park in Bowmanville.

Third podium finish in the Pirelli World Challenge for Blancpain Racing

Nick Catsburg brings Blancpain Racing Gallardo R-EX home in 2nd place at Barber Motorsports Park.

Blancpain Racing driver Nick Catsburg pulled away from the main field in a group of three immediately after the start. He easily defended his second place in qualifying and put the leader constantly under pressure. Catsburg kept his cool during various safety car phases in the 50-miunte race. At the re-starts, the Dutchman cleverly exploited the strengths of his Gallardo GT3 R-EX and continued his hunt for first place.

As the leaders began lapping the slower cars on lap 11, Catsburg clawed his way closer to the leader and, with only five minutes left to run, put himself in a perfect position to overtake.
