Thumbs up Porsche WINS!! @ Spa 24 hour 2010

The records show that the win goes to the BMS Scuderia Italia andtheir Porsche 911 GT3 RS,
driven with great skill by Romain Dumas, Jorg Bergmeister, Wolf Henzler and Martin Ragginger.
They completed 541 laps or 3,789 kilometres.



WINNER - #23 BMS Scuderia Italia and their Porsche 911 GT3 RS


Just over a minute behind the Italian winners was another Porsche, that of the IMSA Performance Matmut.
The crew of Patrick Long, Patrick Pilet, Richard Lietz and Raymond Narac
came tantalisingly close to an outright victory at this Belgian classic.


Third place in a classic 24 Hour race is normally something that is worth celebrating but I suspect that there
will be a deflated, disappointed mood in the BMW pit box.
Dirk Werner, Dirk Muller and Dirk Adorf had the race covered from the first hour and
managed to maintain control despite encountering the usual four season in one day
weather system so often seen at Spa Francorchamps. L'Annee Prochaine?

The GT3 class win and 6th place overall went to the Mulner Motorsport Porsche 911 GT3 R.
The driver line up of Juerger Haring, Dimitrious Konstantinou, Arnaud Peyroles and
Giles Vannelet made the best of the difficult conditions, outlasting the strong opposition.
