BRNO (24 May, 2019) – The Red Camel-Jordans.nl CUPRA TCR (#101, Ivo Breukers / Luc Breukers / Rik Breukers) currently heads a CUPRA 1-2 in the TCE division after the first three hours of racing at the Hankook 12H BRNO. Both the reigning TCR-class European Champions and the NKPP Racing by Bas Koeten Racing CUPRA TCR (#175, Gijs Bessem / Harry Hilders / Christiaan Frankenhout) have completed 73 laps of the 5.403km Automotodrom Brno, as has the 3rd placed Autorama Motorsport by Wolf-Power Racing Volkswagen Golf GTi TCR (#112, Fabian Danz / Kari-Pekka Laaksonen / Antti Buri), which leads the TCE European championship outright. All three teams will thus take tomorrow’s restart on the same lap.
Results Hankook 12H BRNO after 3 hours

Having secured pole position earlier this afternoon, and having lost significant time in the early stages to fading grip levels, Red Camel-Jordans.nl team owner Ivo Breukers was understandably overjoyed to have held onto the lead, though admitted to be a little unsure how the team had done so…
“I don’t know!” a smiling Ivo told radiolemans.com’s Joe Bradley. “We played around a little bit with a few quantities and the back of the car is now a little closer to us in terms of tyre wear. It’s a hard race, a strange race, but it’s fun.”
The SP3-class pole sitting Team ABBA Racing BMW M3 V8 GTR (#334, Richard Neary / Sam Neary / Charles Lamb) had looked set to carry the TCE lead into the overnight intervention after a strong start from 4th on the grid. However, heat issues and a malfunctioning gear selector sensor means the British team has already lost more than an hour in the garage. This now means both the Lestrup Racing Team Volkswagen Golf GTi (#110, Stefan Nilsson / Peter Fahlström / Marcus Fluch / Emil Sällberg) and the MONLAU COMPETICION CUPRA TCR DSG (#107, Stuart Hall / Christopher Kemp / David Tinn / Tom Black) round out the TCE top five.
Further back in A3, the Synchro Motorsport Honda FK8-Civic Type-R (#676, Alyn James / Daniel Wheeler) continues to lead after three hours, albeit less comfortably than it had done at the two-hour mark. Having amassed a four-lap advantage, the British team opted to change its camber setup in an effort to preserve its tyre life, losing the former 24H TCE SERIES champions eight minutes in the pitlane. The British team’s closest rival is the Hofor Racing by Bonk Motorsport BMW M240i Racing Cup (#869, Axel Burghardt / Jurgen Meyer / Nicole Holzer / Martin Kroll), while the Winkler Tuning BMW E46 123D (#666, Michael Winkler / Michael Rienhoff) has completed only three racing laps after suffering an early oil leak.
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).
