Breukers/Liquorish complete great recovery to claim 3rd in Dubai
Rik Breukers and Steven Liquorish completed a great recovery in the third and last round of the Lamborghini Super Trofeo Middle East in Dubai, claiming the third overall place in Race 2 after a very unlucky Race 1, when Dutchman Breukers – who set the pole position in the first qualifying session – hit the barrier and had to prematurely retire.
In the second race British driver Liquorish was perfect, as well as Breukers who clinched a podium finish despite a penalty due to an infringement pit-stop.
