Lotus Praga Lmp2 Preview To The 6 Hours Of Sao Paulo

Recommended Posts

Lotus Praga LMP2 is back in action at the fourth round of the FIA World Endurance Championship. After a two-month break, the team is heading to Brazil for the 6 Hours of Sao Paulo.
The Autodromo José Carlos Pace in Interlagos is located between two large artificial lakes situated on the outskirts of Sao Paulo city. The 4,309 km lap is a physical challenge for the drivers, who have to race anti-clockwise. The high altitude of the track and the low air density will make it difficult for the car and the drivers as well.

The race starts on Sunday, 01st September, at 12:00 hours local time (17:00 hours CEST).

Kevin Weeda, Race Driver #31:
“I had a nice summer break and I am ready and looking forward to getting back in the Lotus Praga LMP2 car at Interlagos. The circuit is interesting and very challenging as it runs anti-clockwise and you are quiet active during the whole lap. As it runs in the opposite direction, your neck muscles get a good workout. We are hopeful for a good result as our new car is continually improving and we are progressing in the right direction.”

Thomas Holzer, Race Driver #32:
“I am looking forward to racing in Interlagos. The track is difficult because you don’t get a chance to rest and even the start-finish-straight is a bend. Our pace at Le Mans was good and hopefully we can keep on progressing. I hope that we can have a good result and I am looking forward to being back in the car.”

      Torrential rain calls a halt to the race on day 3 at Mount Fuji
       
       
      #31 Kevin Weeda (USA) – James Rossiter (GBR)- Vitantonio Liuzzi (ITA)
      #32 Thomas Holzer (GER) – Dominik Kraihamer (AUT) – Jan Charouz (CZ)
      The race at the Mount Fuji was started twice behind the safety car but eventually suspended and stopped due to heavy rain and atrocious weather conditions.
      Lotus Praga Team would have largely preferred to give the public a reward for coming to support them. Unfortunately an hour before the regular end of the race time it was decided to not re-start the race. Lotus Praga LMP2's race strategy was playing out well at that tiime as they were the only LMP2 car one pitstop ahead of all others.
      The Lotus Praga Team is looking forward to the next round in Shanghai and hoping that they can replicate last year's pole position.
