A new victory for Motul!
The fifth round of the World FIA GT1 Championship took place last weekend at the Silverstone circuit in England. Following an eventful race marked by many collisions (no less than 6 cars failed to cross the chequered flag owing to accidents), the Nissan GT-R driven by Michael Krumm and Lucas Luhr (team JR Motorsports), for which Motul is a technical partner, won the day brilliantly!
This fine performance secured on home turf allows the English team to place its two drivers at the head of the driver standings, 9 points ahead of the duo Piccini / Hohenadel (team Hexis Racing), now placed third in the driver standings after taking a solid fourth at Silverstone. Less luck however for the French team's sister car, as Clivio Piccione and Christian Hohenadel were forced to abandon the race following a collision whereas they were in the top five.
As for the three other contending Nissan GT-Rs, the same thing happened to numbers 21 (Sumo Power GT) and 22 (JR Motorports), which collided and unfortunately finished the race on the recovery vehicle. Placed seventh, the Nissan GT-R driven by Hughes / Bernoldi (team Sumo Power GT) escaped, for its part, unscathed.
Next race in Navarre, in Spain, on 3 July!
