One victory and a second place in the PRO-AM class reward GDL Racing and young promising driver Rik Breukers
GDL Racing bets on a new promising driver. The 18-year-old Dutchman Rik Breukers, was one of the absolute frontrunners last weekend at the Paul Ricard track, in the third of six rounds of the Lamborghini Blancpain Super Trofeo Europa.
At the French venue, Breukers moved up from AM class – in which he has already claimed three victories at Monza and Silverstone – to PRO-AM and was selected for the Young Drivers Program of Lamborghini Squadra Corse. At Le Castellet Breukers started by setting the quickest lap in Q2, and started for the first time from the front row in Race 2.
Previously, in Race 1, he clinched the second position of his class. But Sunday he did better, despite a not very good start, fighting for the first places and finishing fifth overall – with 47 cars on the track – and first in the PRO-AM class, taking the second place in the standings one point behind the leader.
Aldo with GDL Racing team, Bashar Mardini finished eight in the AM class in Race 2 after he claimed the pole position. Eventually he was not lucky, considering the crash he was involved in Race 1 that forced him to retire, although he showed a consistend growing in this first part of the season.
Newcomer Lim Keon Wee showed well finishing both the racers, thanks to the help of team manager Gianluca De Lorenzi.
The next round of the Lamborghini Blancpain Super Trofeo Europa is scheduled for the end of July at the Belgian track of Spa-Francorchamps, in the same weekend of the famous 24 Hours.
