COUNTDOWN TO 1,000KMS OF PAUL RICARD
The next race for the Reiter Young Stars is coming up this weekend on the 23-24th June at the 1,000kms of Paul Ricard. The duo of Caitlin Wood and Marko Helistekangas have made the switch to the Blancpain Endurance Series with Tomas Enge joining them as their 3rd driver.
Enge has been working alongside all the Reiter Young Star drivers from 2016 and 2017 as a driving coach and mentor. Wood says, "It has been really great working with such a high calibre driver such as Enge to help with my progression from GT4 to GT3. He has so much experience and knowledge that I can only learn and grow from. I am really excited for Enge to be teaming up with Marko and I for the rest of the season in the selected Endurance races, it will be extremely beneficial for us to have a pro to work closely with and pull us along to keep improving. I can't wait to get back into the Lambo next week, it's been a long process rebuilding the car from a disappointing round at Brands but the crew at Reiter have been working non-stop to make sure we are ready to go this week"
Free practice begins Friday morning with the qualifying sessions Saturday morning. The main 6 hour endurance race will begin at 6pm Saturday night and will finish at midnight. You can tune into all the sessions via GT TV.
