Lotus Lmp2 Third Day At The 6 Hours Of Bahrain

#32 Kevin Weeda (USA) – James Rossiter (GBR) – Vitantonio Liuzzi (ITA)

 

Race

#32 Position 4 (LMP2) Position 9 (Overall)

#31 retired

 

Great race for Lotus at the 6 Hours of Bahrain.

 

The team showed a strong and impressive performance and achieved its best race result of the season so far. Car #32 finished the race in fourth position, just about 30 seconds off from the second place. Kevin Weeda, James Rossiter and Vitantonio Liuzzi did solid runs and were fighting for the podium. The black and gold livered Lotus LMP2 car #32 was even leading its class in the race.

 

Car #31 had to retire because of a broken rear suspension. Luca Moro spun into the gravel and as a result, the suspension of the car was irreparably damaged.

 

With the great result of car #32, Lotus is going to the next race with a positive feeling.

 

Thomas Holzer, Race driver #31:

“It is a shame that we had to retire due to a broken suspension on the rear. Until then, we had a good race and we could make up for some positions. It was very hot in the car at the beginning of the race, so it was very demanding to drive. We will now focus on the next round in Japan and I hope that we will have a better result there.”

 

James Rossiter, Race driver #32:

“It was a good race for us. It was the most physically demanding race I have ever done. I really enjoyed starting the race and getting into the lead in LMP2 class. I hope we will have a podium finish in one of the next rounds.”
