SPYKER SQUADRON EIGHTH ON 1000KM SILVERSTONE GRID

SILVERSTONE, September 11, 2010 - Spyker Squadron will start the Autosport 1000 KM of Silverstone from eighth place on the GT2 grid. While rain was predicted for Saturday the session was driven on a dry track, which resulted in yet another close fight in the strong GT2 class. After 20 minutes of qualifying Peter Dumbreck had posted the eighth fastest lap time, just half a second from pole position.

On Friday track activity at the 5.891 km long Silverstone circuit began in the afternoon with two free practice sessions. The Spyker Squadron mechanics and drivers used the first session to get the best set-up for the car, to check some different gear rations and to get used to the new circuit layout. Around the new Arena Layout the Spyker C8 Laviolette GT2R was able to compete with the front runners, like it was in recent years, although changing weather conditions, a safety car period as well as a red flag led to some odd sessions on Friday.

Prior to qualifying the team went out for a third and final free practice session, which resulted in a fourth fastest lap time in the fourteen car strong field. The gap to the quickest GT2 car was just three tenths of a second.

Dumbreck was given the task to qualify the Spyker C8 Laviolette GT2R for his home race and supported by friends and family the Scot went out for his qualifying run. He completed six laps, in which he posted a 2:03.877 as his fastest lap time, just 0.030 seconds slower than the fastest time in the morning practice. The strength of the 2010 Le Mans Series GT2 category was shown again as Dumbreck's fastest time meant an eighth place on the grid for Spyker Squadron at just a few tenths of a second from pole position. The team was satisfied with the result given the fact that they had not been this close in qualifying so far this year.

Action at Silverstone will resume on Sunday morning with the warm-up session at 9:00. Tom Coronel will be behind the wheel of the black and red Spyker in this session. The race is set to start at 11:55 and it is Dumbreck who will start the race for Spyker Squadron.

Peter Dumbreck: “So far so good. Not a bad (qualifying) session. We are very close, there is about half a second from pole position to us in eighth position, it is the closest we have been all year. This track suits the car a lot more, it is just one more tenth and bingo you are right up to fifth position. I felt the car had a bit more understeer in qualifying, but it might be that the wind has picked up and is blowing the car on at certain corners. But I think we have good base setup and are ready for the race.”

Currently P12, not going very well it seems. Does anyone know why the SpykerSquadron Twitter site isn't being updated?
