Massive hoping for more of the same at Le Castellet

Monday, August 31, 2015

Leading into the fourth race of the five race 2015 European Le mans series Danish squad Massive Motorsport will be hoping for some more of the same fortune they had in Austria which allowed them to finally net their one and only (but podium) finish of the season so far.

Crashing out of the lead at Silverstone earlier in the year and then having a race of nightmares in Italy driver pace together with circumstance on track finally allowed the team to secure a much deserved third at the Red Bull Ring six weeks ago.

The fourth round comes from the ultra fast track at Le Castellet in France with the red and white Vantage being one of five entries in the GTC class.

With fifty two points being the maximum possible for two race wins with two class poles from the remaining two rounds all is not technically lost although that would kind of finish would be what dreams are made of considering the points deficit to the leading TDS BMW.

The team will also be hoping that Caspar Elgaard will not have any ill effect following his nasty looking crash in the Danish Thundersport Championship over the weekend. Video shows the Massive car tangling with Jan Magnussen's car whilst battling with others in the top four when contact sent Elgaards car crashing into the barriers at over 200kph.

Action on track kicks off in France at 10:30Hrs (local) on Saturday 5th September with the first free practice with qualifying for the GT classes starting at 09:00Hrs on Sunday.

The start of the 4Hrs of Le Castellet starts at 13:00Hrs local.
