Wed 29 Jul 2009 Another night race for Spyker Squadron

After a strong performance at 24 Heures du Mans in June where the team finished fifth in class and ahead of all the Porsches, Spyker Squadron will compete in round three of the five-race Le Mans Series schedule this weekend. The 1000 km of Algarve bring the #85 Spyker C8 Laviolette GT2R, driven by Dutchman Tom Coronel and Czech Jarek Janis to Portimao, Portugal.

The predicted sunset is around 20:45 local time (GMT) and with the start of the race set for Saturday 1 August at 19:15 it means that part of the race will run in all darkness. It will take the checkered flag no later than 01:15 on Sunday.

The 4.69 km track is new to the Le Mans Series but some of the teams already used the demanding Autodromo Internacional do Algarve track to test their cars earlier this season. The brand new facility situated near Portimao in Portugal's holiday region, the Algarve, got FIA approval last September. The 18 turn-track has many uphill and downhill sections, making it challenging for drivers to find the right braking spot, and has limited sections to relax.

After a 2800 km drive the trucks arrived this morning at the track. The team is also complete and will prepare all their technical facilities for tomorrow's free practice sessions. A third session is scheduled on Friday before the teams qualify on Friday evening just after seven o'clock. The Spyker will make its first appearance on the track on Thursday at 16:45 GMT for the first one hour free practice session.

This raceweekend is a little bit different than the previous weekends. Why? The first free practice is already today. And the race is not on sunday but on saturday night!

Eurosport will air three hours of the race live! The first 1,5 hour and the last 1,5 hour.
