Bumblebee gets stung again at VLN3

Saturday, April 26, 2014

It turned out to be second time unlucky for the Leonard Motorsport duo of Stuart Leonard and Paul Wilson in as many races at todays VLN3.

Having qualified their SP9 class car a very respectable P15 out of a grid entry of over 200 cars Leonard and Wilson were looking to clear their memories of what had happened to them in VLN2 and what looked like a certain top ten finish before a last lap puncture had robbed them of that prospect.

At the first driver change today Leonard had moved the #32 car back up to P12 after a disappointing start and by the time that Wilson had had his first stint and swapped back again they had climbed their way up to P8 at the half way point in the race. 

However, soon after Stuart Leonard had returned to the car unfortunate contact with another competitor left their car with damaged front suspension.

Despite Stuart being able to limp the car back to the pit lane the damage was too severe to be rectified and the car was retired just after the two and a half hour mark. Another disappointing conclusion to what, up till that point had been another fine driving display.

The next VLN event will be on May 17th.
