SPA-FRANCORCHAMPS (19 April 2019) - The AC Motorsport Audi RS3 LMS (#188, Stephane Perrin / Vincent Radermecker / James Kaye) leads a superb battle for outright TCE honours at the Hankook 12H SPA, one that will see the top four runners start on the same lap after tonight’s overnight intervention.

Though the Audi completed 76 laps of the 7.004km Circuit de Spa-Francorchamps, significant damage caused by an accident during Thursday’s private test session left significant doubt as to whether the team would be able to start the race at all.
 
“I was leaving my home yesterday and got a message from the team saying ‘maybe don’t come’ because the car was in such a state!” James Kaye explained to radiolemans.com’s Bruce Jones. “But I got here this morning, they managed to roll the car out after working all night for the end of free practice, we qualified 2nd, and now we’ve finished the first part of the race in the lead. Incredible really!”
 
In an equally impressive fight back, the Autorama Motorsport by Wolf-Power Racing Volkswagen Golf GTi TCR (#112, Fabian Danz / Jan Sorensen / Kristian Jepsen) finished ‘part one’ of the Hankook 12H SPA in 2nd place in TCE, in spite of a late engine issue relegating the team to the very back of the grid.
 
Just behind the lead pair, the Holmgaard Motorsport Volkswagen Golf GTi TCR DSG (#102, Magnus Holmgaard / Jonas Holmgaard / Roy Edland / Martin Gøtsche) and the Red Camel-Jordans.nl CUPRA TCR (#101, Ivo Breukers / Rik Breukers / Francis Tjia) will line up on the second row for tomorrow’s restart.
 
The PROsport Performance Aston Martin Vantage AMR GT4 (#1, Rodrigue Gillion / Nico Verdonck / Akhil Rabindra / Michael Munemann) currently leads in SP3 after problems struck the reigning European Champion’s closest rivals. A small fire cost the CWS Engineering Ginetta G55 (#378, Colin White / Ian Stinton / Jean-Francois Brunot) almost an hour on pit road, while the Intersport Racing BMW M3 (#614, Peter Hardman / Stuart Wright / Kevin Clarke) managed just 20 minutes at race pace before throttle problems ground the BMW to a halt.
 
Further back, the Winkler Tuning BMW E46 123D (#666, Michael Winkler / Markus Mair) has pulled a one-lap advantage over Dan Agro Racing Peugeot RCZ (#685, Nicolaj Kandborg / Lars Seistrup  / Mikkel Gregersen / Steffan Jusjong) and Synchro Motorsport Honda FK8-Civic Type-R (#676, Alyn James / Daniel Wheeler / Matt Neal).
 
Following a brief overnight hiatus, the 2018 Hankook 12H SPA will re-start on Saturday morning at 10.05 hrs local time, and will continue uninterrupted for up to eight more hours. Live timing and live streaming of the race in HD quality with commentary by Radiolemans.com will be available on the series’ website. The streaming will also be uploaded on the series’ Youtube channel. Regular updates will be published on Twitter (@24HSeries), Facebook (24H Series) and Instagram (24H Series).
