One collision at the start. Two newcomers in the clinch. Three Rookies fighting for the class win. Two leader changes. And one beaming winner, Larry ten Voorde. The heat was turned way up last weekend at the Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya.
Was this past weekend’s race the turning point of the Porsche Mobil 1 Supercup 2020 season? #25 Larry ten Voorde (NED/Team GP Elite) won on the circuit near Barcelona and took away the Overall Classification lead from rival #2 Dylan Pereira (LUX/BWT Lechner Racing).
Pole position and victory. But the race itself wasn’t as squeaky-clean as the results suggest. At the start of the race, Porsche Junior #1 Jaxon Evans (NZL/BWT Lechner Racing) took #AcceleratingPassion quite literally with a show-stopping overtaking manoeuvre, using the outside lane in the first turn that gave him the lead.
But the field didn’t get far: #4 Jean-Baptiste Simmenauer (FRA/Lechner Racing Middle East) frozen due to clutch issues on his 8th starting position, caused several collisions. The Safety Car took over for two laps, followed by a red flag and a race interruption.
