Craft Racing: 5th in MME 12 hour race

Thursday, August 12, 2010

Frank Yu, Alain Li and Michael Bentwood piloted the Barwell run Craft Racing Aston Martin DBRS9 GT3 car to fifth place in the 12 hour MME race held at the Sepang F1 Circuit. This was the strongest field yet in the prestigious race with semi-works entries and several of the World’s best GT drivers in the field.

The race started at midnight on Saturday and ended midday on Sunday August 8th, the leading Lamborghini completing a record breaking 315 laps at the flag. The works supported Audi R8 was second with the BMW Z4 in third. The final hour saw a great battle between the first two real “privateer” cars, the Lamborghini of Dilantha and Craft’s Aston Martin. Dilantha took fourth place with ten minutes to go.

“Our best hope before the start was for a top six finish” reported Craft’s Mark Goddard “so to finish 5th was very satisfying. It was a great experience and we cannot wait to return next year with a view to win.”
