PK Carsport Corvette C6.R Wins the 24 Hours of Spa

It was a battle between Corvette and Maserati for what could be the final run of GT1 race cars at the 24 Hours of Spa. In the end, it was the PK Carsport C6.R driven by Mike Hezemans, Anthony Kumpen, Jos Menten and Kurt Mollekens that finish a comforable 11 laps ahead of the Vitaphone Racing Team (DHL) Maserati MC12.

Corvette Racing’s Oliver Gavin was driving at Spa this weekend for the Belgian FIA GT Selleslagh Racing Team (SRT). Gavin was leading at 21 hours when the car developed a serious oil problem and spent the majority of the final hours in the garage. It would come out and complete a final lap for certification and finished 19th overall.

Another member of the Corvette Racing Team, Marcel Fassler, faired much better with the Phoenix Racing Audi R8 LMS. Fassler and co-drivers Henri Moser, Alexander Margaritis, and Marc Besseng dominated the G2 category and rose up the standings during the cool night hours. Unable to hold off the resurgent Vitaphone Maserati, the Audi R8 finished 15 laps down for third overall.

This is the second win in two years for PK Carsport Corvette at the 24 hours of Spa.
