Spyker Squadron - Drivers speak

Spyker has focused its efforts for 2008 on the LM GT2 class. The two Spyker C8 Laviolettes were first through technical inspections this morning in the sunny square; "Quinconce des Jacobins" in the center of the historic city of Le Mans.

At test day; after an engine failure and an engine swap between the two cars, both the Spykers had put in a minimum number of laps. The team did not have the chance to make full use of testing and will have a big challenge in LM GT2 against a field of very quick Porsches and Ferraris.

#94 Benjamin (Benny) Leuenberger: "Had a really bad test day, the other car had engine problems so as soon as I had done my 10 rookie laps the engine was swapped to the other car so Ralf could qualify. No setup was done but we are doing well in LMS so far, so by staying out of trouble and hopefully a dry race, we will get a finish."

#85 Alexi Vasiliev: "Our engine firing order has been changed for the better, but the Porsches and Ferraris will be hard to beat."

#85 Peter Dumbreck: "The team has been working very hard we just need a little bit of luck to go our way." "I've been here twice but not yet put in a full race stint. My '99 race with Mercedes was over after just a few laps and in 2006 in the Spyker C8 the engine failed, again after just a very few race laps."

Scrutineering

Wed 11 Jun 2008 Both cars passed scruteneering

Another major step was taken yesterday in SNORAS Spyker Squadron’s road to Le Mans. Early in the morning both cars were transported by truck to the ‘Place des Jacobins’, downtown Le Mans, for the official ACO scruteneering. A large crowd gathered in the historical city centre to watch the administrative and technical checks from close distance.

The cars and team were welcomed with a big applause and many spectators, but also the ACO, referred to the football match the Dutch won from the Italians the night before. After a series of checks; ride hight, dimensions, electronics, the leader lights, both cars were released after 45 minutes and the final word was given by the ACO’s technical commission: both cars passed the checks and are invited to enter qualifying tonight.

Two qualifying of the four qualifying sessions are scheduled for today. The first two-hour session starts at 19:00 followed by a one-hour brake. In the second session, which starts at 21:00 and will be partly run in dark conditions. In this session all drivers need to complete three full laps to be eligible to compete in the race this Saturday.

The start of the 24 Hour race will be given from space this year. The residents of the International Orbiting Station will wave the French flag at 15:00 from 400 kms above the track.

First Qualifying report

Wed 11 Jun 2008 24h Du Mans: Qualifying Session 1

After last weeks weather drama the majority of time in the first session was spent on installation laps and setup of both cars. Alexei Vasiliev started in the #85 car before switching places with Ralf Kelleners after 40 minutes. The weather conditions in Le Mans are windy, dry and with 25 degrees at the begin of the session it was still warm. The crew closely monitored engine temperatures as well as the cockpit temperature which is set to a maximum of 32 degrees centigrade.

Ralf soon returned to the box and asked for a few setup changes to reduce the oversteer a bit and went out again. With 30 minutes to go Peter got in the car for his share of track time. Towards the end of the first two-hour session he went for two flying laps and set the 8th time in GT2 (4:06.268).

In the other car it was Andrea Chiesa who kicked off. He spent a little over an hour in the car and returned a number of times to the box to make changes to the car to improve the setup. At a quarter past eight he handed the car to Swiss Benjamin Leuenberger. Benjamin continued working on the setup for 30 minutes before Iradj Alexander drove the last 15 minutes to the checkered flag.

The next session is scheduled from 22:00 to 24:00.

2nd Qualifying report

Thu 12 Jun 2008 24h Du Mans: Qualifying Session 2

Besides completing the mandatory three night laps for each driver, the Dutch team continued to work on the setup of their cars for the race in the second two-hour session today. Although the #85 car with Peter Dumbreck behind the wheel did improve times their plans for a quick lap towards the end of the second session were abandoned due to a second code red.

Peter started the second session just after 22:00 and although the right head light was a bit off Peter Dumbreck improved his time to a 4:05.096. In another attempt he hit traffic and before he could retry a code red prevented him to stay out. After about 30 minutes the session continued and Ralf got out for his mandatory laps. Alexei followed and returned to the pit box to get some fuel out of the car before Peter would go for another attempt. Unfortunately, just after they released the excessive fuel, a second code red was given after a serious shunt of an LMP2 car and with about ten minutes to go the ACO decided to stop the session.

The drivers in the #94 car continued working on the setup. Iradj Alexander started the session in the Swiss car. After 30 minutes he handed the car to Andrea Chiesa. Benjamin was the last to drive the #94 and complete his laps before the LMP2 code red.
