LAMBORGHINI SUPER TROFEO: Agony for Pull as driveshaft problem halts progress

It was a disappointing Lamborghini Super Trofeo race for the four Brits in action, despite the best efforts of 18 year old James Pull to provide some local cheer. The recently-appointed Lamborghini Young Driver was putting in a rapid stint after taking over from Kelvin Snoeks and looked a good bet for fourth and possibly third, only for driveshaft failure to halt his progress.

Having started 6th, Snoeks climbed a place from the start bur could not keep pace with the leaders. Once the pit window had closed the positions had ironed out, Pull took over looking strong in fifth, but a challenge for at least fourth looked on the cards. This was due in part to Juan Perez struggling to maintain the speed his co-driver gave him the lead with, as well as Pull putting in some very quick sector times. Once he was in touching distance of climbing a place though his driveshaft gave way, leading to retirement.

Elsewhere the next highest-placed Brit was Steven Liquorish and partner Rik Breukers, who enjoyed an eventful race en route to 18th, having started towards the back fo the grid. Brent Millage came home in 29th alongside Australian co-driver Caitlin Wood, while Tim Richards finished 38th in his lone effort.

The race was won by Vito Postiglione and Karol Bosz, the latter of whom chased down Perez impeccably early on into his stint to ensure a comfortable victory.
