Clearwater Racing leave the Nurburgring still leading the WEC in the GTE-Am class by finishing 4th in class!! Our race can only really be described as fraught....we lost 20 seconds during our first pit stop with a sticking seat belt.
Unfortunately Weng then had his first off in more than 6 years at the high speed turn 5 but fortunately the car, very cooperatively, bounced harmlessly off the soft barriers and Weng was able to continue unscathed but we dropped more than a minute with this unscheduled interlude. The team then dropped to 5th but superb stints by both Keita Sawa and Matt Griffin brought us 4th place in class and we still lead the championship by 8 points!!
As ever the Clearwater Racing crew performed faultlessly and we look forward to more success at our next stop on the WEC trail....Mexico City...welcome to high altitude racing!!!
