Winter VLN Round 4 - Race Report

Winter VLN Round 4 - Race Report

This was the 6 hour round. We've had withdraw the Mustang from the series - the drivers have got too many other commitments but both Kias were on the grid although both Bernes in 283 and John in 284 faced long nights - they were alone in the cars because Mattias was working this weekend.

 

Both cars ran well early in the race and after the 1st round of pitstops Bernes was leading the Kia class with John running 3rd, only 20 seconds behind. But John's race was then ended by an impatient GT3 that tried to pass in an impossible place and pushed JOhn into the barriers. The 2nd placed Kia then wrecked itself, leaving Bernes with nearly a full lap of an advantage. The rest of the race was just a careful cruise, allowing the 2nd place car to catch up slightly but always retaining a massive advantage. The pics below are all from the last lap of the race, showing how perfect the car still was at the end (a bit dirty but otherwise fine!)

 

The win leaves Bernes with an almost unassailable lead in the series.
