Circumstance and errors cost Bullitt Racing a higher finish in opening Road to Le Mans race

Friday, June 10, 2022


A disappointing P7 in class was the conclusion of Bullitt Racing first venture into their Road to Le Mans Aston Martin Racing powered adventure after promising Free Practice and qualifying sessions positioned them at the head of the class.

With team boss Stephen Pattrick being this time partnered by AMR young driver Valentin Hasse-Clot having had Theo Nouet deputise for the Parisian at the last two rounds, the #99 Bullitt AMR went into last nights opening race from GT3 pole position.

Sadly, another tardy start from the midfield left several cars stranded by the trackside at the top of the hill close to the Dunlop bridge leading to several ‘slow zones’ coming into effect which spoilt the opening half of the race.

The #99 cars progression was latter compounded as the opening stint from Pattrick soon attracted the attention of Race Control as he pitted (too fast) leaving Hasse-Clot the added problem of a drive through penalty to contend with and even the ‘mighty’ Frenchman was unable to deal with the consequences of that!!

That leaves tomorrow morning’s second race Infront of the awakening 24 Hours of Le Mans crowd to redeem themselves in which the #99 car will start from the fourth row of the GT3 grid.
