CoRe With Big Trouble At Imola!
The fourth round of the NEO Endurance 24H Series did not work for CoRe as intended – despite promising pace, a short lead in the TCR class and good starting fights with CraigSetupShop and SimRC, Thomas Gibson and Ross Balfour had to experience technical issues.
Thomas was not able to qualify higher than the 5th position off the TCR grid this time by. The double stint by Thomas started off well – the CoRe team was able to advance to the 3rd position and for a short period of time, Thomas saw himself as the leader. After successful two hours driving time, the upcoming driver swap with Ross went horribly wrong. Due to few technical issues Ross was not able to enter the car – Marius, who was spotting for both of them, had to take over and run few laps until another swap could have been done. Ross had to go again, Thomas needed to end the race afterwards. With a lot of time lost due to this, the maximum to save was only P10. The RaceSpot broadcast of this race can be found here.
