Lola takes another race win in Aston Martin Endurance Legends

Monday, May 13, 2019

Lola again proved her worth at the weekend with another race win at the second race meeting of the Aston Martin Masters Endurance Legends Series at Monza, Italy.

This time racing in support of the European Le Mans Series, nineteen previously homologated  prototypes and GT racers conducted battle around the sweeping 3.6mile circuit within the Royal grounds in Milan.

Belgium racer, Christophe D'Ansembourg was again there with his Lola Aston Martin DBR1-2 to claim another win in race one (mirroring what he achieved in the opening event of the season at Paul Ricard) after having to battle up the leader board from P4 after a bad start having Qualified P2.

Competing in the INV class aboard his ex Miedecke Racing AMR Vantage GT3 was Austrian Alex Lienau who unfortunately found that he had prepped his car with the wrong gearbox ratios prior to the meeting to make difficult to make full use of his V12 power. Despite this and other technical issues during the race he still managed a P15 finish.

Race 2 of the weekend was apparently even more eventful than the first with D'Ansembourg clashing (literally) with the Michel Frey Lola Judd to put the #008 LMP1 car out of the race on lap 15 out of the 22 laps completed by the winner.

In the GT class, Lienau continued what he could do considering the Achilles heel that he had presented himself with to finish the race again in P15.

The Series will reconvene at Many Cours in France for the next two races that will feature at the Historic French Grand Prix meeting at the end of June.
