The Spa 200 race is a race over 200 minutes on the mythic Spa-Francorchamps track, which we can easily call our hometrack. The 200 minutes were held in two heats of 100 minutes, one on Friday and one on Saturday. The combined result of the two heats gave the endresult of the Spa 200.
For the occasion we had two BMW 325i Clubsport races with us for the Werckx family (Tom and Guido) and the other car for Pieter Denys who completed the races as a solo driver.
From practice one we had a good pace in the total starter-field of 67 cars! In our class we managed P2 and P3 in the qualifying session, encouraging us to push for a good race result.
The first race of 100 minutes got disturbed with some safety car procedures which worked out better for Pieter than they did for Tom and Guido. In the ranking after the first 100 minutes we were still in P2 and P3 in class... Time to see what we've got left extra for the 100 minutes on Saturday.
And yes there was more to come. In the Saturday race we only had one safety car procedure and we could push the whole race, although we had to be economic on the tyres... Pieter managed to catch the lead and Tom, although lapping faster laptimes clinched to his 3rd position as the time difference form the Friday race was too big to get any closer.
All in all a weekend that went very well for us with a double podium finish!
