A Top 5 result for Erik Mayrink in France

Atualizado: 8 de Dez de 2021

The Bonaldi Motorsport duo Erik Mayrink and Daan Pijl finished the first race in Paul Ricard in the top 5 in PRO class, at the second stage of the Lamborghini Super Trofeo Europe. The drivers of the #33 Lamborghini Huracán finished the session in the 6th position overall.

The polesitting VS Racing #6 Lamborghini Huracán ST Evo of Karol Basz and Andrzej Lewandowski led off the rolling start, withstanding a fierce assault from the Bonaldi Motorsport car of Daan Pijl who went toe-to-toe with Basz as the field entered the first corner. Pijl couldn’t quite stay alongside Basz and was forced to take to the escape road, dropping two places to fourth. That allowed the #2 Leipert Motorsport entry of Sebastian Balthasar to climb up to second place, albeit Balthasar soon being hamstrung by a five-second post-race time penalty for a start procedure infringement. The same penalty also applied to the #7 GSM Racing Huracán of Rossel who, like Pijl, also had to use the extra road at Turn 1 to avoid contact.

Basz was untroubled after his early brush with Pijl and quickly opened up a commanding lead of over three seconds from Balthasar at the end of the opening lap.

After the pit-stops, Mayrink emerged ahead of Guzman leaving the pits – as Lewnadowski maintained the lead – but was divebombed at Turn 6 by Pulcini who had taken over from Gilardoni early in the window and now on warm tyres. Guzman also made the most of Mayrink being displaced to take fifth on the road.
