BRNO (24 May, 2019) – The Bohemia Energy racing with Scuderia Praha Ferrari 488 GT3 (#11, Jiří Písařík / Josef Kral / Matteo Malucelli) currently leads the Hankook 12H BRNO after three hours of racing around the 5.403km Automotodrom Brno. The local team, which has never been bested at the Czech event, has so far completed 79 laps after a strong opening run, but was unable to pull a lap clear of its nearest rival, the Car Collection Motorsport Audi R8 LMS (#88, Jürgen Häring / Taki Konstantinou / Tim Müller / Markus Winkelhock). The two teams will consequently start on the front row of the grid for tomorrow’s restart, and, crucially, on the same lap.
 
Results Hankook 12H BRNO after 3 hours

Despite slippery conditions leaving grip at a premium around the Brno circuit, Scuderia Praha was nevertheless happy with its progress thus far.
 
“For the moment, we are happy, but it’s only the first part,” Matteo Mallucelli explained to radiolemans.com’s Joe Bradley. “It’s a shame, because we nearly pulled a lap clear, but that’s okay. For now the car is working, but we cannot push on the car under braking otherwise we have oversteer. Tomorrow, we’ll just have to drive as cleanly as possible.”
 
Having claimed outright pole position for the event earlier this afternoon, Car Collection Motorsport now lies 2nd, in spite of a bizarre incident before the race had even started with the OLIMP Racing Audi R8 LMS Evo 2019 (#8, Marcin Jedlinski / Mateusz Lisowski / Karol Basz). Lining up behind the safety car for the rolling start, the two Audis sharing the front row barged into each other, the loss of momentum giving its nearest rivals the edge heading into turn one. Having also lost time while re-fuelling, OLIMP Racing has since slipped to 9th.
 
Behind Car Collection Motorsport, the Wochenspiegel Team Monschau Ferrari 488 GT3 (#22, Georg Weiss / Leonard Weiss / Hendrik Still/ Jochen Krumbach / Oliver Kainz) is the second Ferrari in the overall top three, and finished just a few seconds ahead of the Herberth Motorsport Porsche 991 GT3 R (#91, Daniel Allemann / Ralf Bohn / Robert Renauer). The second Car Collection Motorsport entry meanwhile (#34, Johannes Dr. Kirchhoff / Max Edelhoff / Gustav Edelhoff) has dropped a lap down on the leaders, but will line-up for tomorrow’s restart in 5th overall.
 
The DUWO Racing Porsche 991-II Cup (#909, Andrey Mukovoz / Sergey Peregudov / Stanislav Sidoruk) currently leads the 991 class, despite losing time to a stuck wheel nut during its last pit stop. The Speed Lover Porsche 991-II Cup (#978, Dominique Bastien / Sven Van Laere) lies 2nd, while a strong recovery drive from the Porsche Lorient Racing Porsche 991-II Cup (#911, Jean-François Demorge / Gilles Blasco / Lionel Amrouche / Frédéric Ancel) means the 991-class European Championship contender took the chequered flag in 3rd position.
 
Gear selection issues for the sister entry aside, the RTR Projects KTM X-BOW GT4 (#224, Tomas Enge / Sergej Pavlovec / Jan Krabec / Eike Angermayr) comfortably leads the GT4 class ahead of reigning 24H TCE SERIES champions, Hofor Racing by Bonk Motorsport (#50, Martin Kroll / Thomas Jäger / Michael Fischer / Gustav Engljaehringer / Michael Bonk). The latter has enjoyed a race-long battle so far with Senkyr Motorsport’s own BMW M4 GT4 (#409, Richard Gonda / Tomas Erdelyi / Robert Senkyr / Marek Fried), which rounds out the category top three for now.
 
Following a brief overnight hiatus, the 2019 Hankook 12H BRNO will re-start on Saturday morning at 10.00 hrs local time, and will continue uninterrupted until the chequered flag is flown at 19.00 hrs that evening. 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).
