Rhesus racing: Success during the first races

Wednesday, April 27, 2011

After a difficult qualifying session Jan Joris Verheul gave the Rhesus racing Aston Martin team their first pole of the season.

The sprint went well with Jan Joris Verheul finishing second behind the Lotus Evora of Stefano D'Aste. Just before the race, the team decided to register for the National Championship and thus Jan Joris Verheul finished second in both the European and in the National standings on the second spot.
Despite a good start I could only challeng the Lotus for 7 laps, then I had to really let go" said Jan Joris Verheul his first GT4 race with Rhesus. "Then Chris popped the Ginetta in a gap that was not there and we got together damaging the car. I therefore had a lot of trouble keeping the car on the track for the last few laps"

Dennis Retera started the second sprint race start from the fifth spot, thanks to a great start, he soon moved up two places but he could not hold this position. Dennis ended his race in the same place as it had begun and was not happy with is performance.

In the main race Rhesus started from the third on the grid with Dennis taking the honour of the first stint. With a great start right away Dennis moved up a place and maintained his position until the pit stops where he handed over to Verheul but after the stop the tyres so rapidly that the Rhesus driver could not improve further than a well-deserved third place in both the European and national stage.
