Corvette wins SPA.


After 532 laps around the 7 km circuit of Spa Francorchamps, the Carsport Corvette C6R of Deletraz, Hezemans, Fassler and Gollin took the chequered flag to win the 24 hour race. They broke Team Vitaphone’s long time winning streak who spun out in the last hour.

Mike Hezemans said ”Pole position and victory – that was quite difficult. But I must say that, for me, all the credit goes to Marcel Fassler. When it was raining we were sat in our motorhome and we said to Marcel: Please keep going! He was so quick during the rain that we could hardly believe it … Without Eric van de Poele’s spin, we could not have won, it was that close.”

The FIA GT entrants were joined by numerous unique entries in the G2 and G3 classes which helped fill the grid to 45 entrants. These included five Ferrari GT3s, a pair of Mosler MR900s and a rare Gillet Veritgo from Belgium.
