Places to make up for TeamAMR at the Red Bull Ring

Sunday, July 23, 2017

With both Beechdean AMR and TF Sport having endured accident and technical issues during the final Free Practice session at the Red Bull Ring yesterday, their Qualifying performance shall unfortunately see them starting at the back of the GTE grid for todays race.

Whilst it was Andrew Howard who had a small 'off' early on in his stint in the #99 car yesterday which lead to a loss of at least half of that session, it was a front end suspension issue that then cut short the test programme for the #90 TF Sport car with it accruing just four laps in that session!

With both teams metaphorically on the 'back foot' through circumstance it came as no real surprise that their qualifying runs were slightly compromised with Nicki Thiim just pipping Darren Turner to the TeamAMR honours by less than 0.1 of a second. Turner was latter docked a lap time for exceeding track limits during Qualifying as well!

Despite sum glum faces within the teams it is reassuring however that the six car GTE grid was still split by just 0.6 of a second (a continuation of performance seen across the race weekend so far) indicating that the race shall be decided upon who makes the least number of mistakes and reacts best to circumstance upon the track.

The race begins at 13:00Hrs local (Noon UK) and is streamed via the ELMS website.

Good luck guys!!
