CCK Motorsport– Le Mans Porsche Sprint Challenge support race victory! Here is the full race report from Team Manager, Daniel Lackey.
We won at Le Mans!!! We came to Le Mans for the Porsche Sprint Challenge support race ahead of the 89th 24 hours. It was our first time here as a team and for Charles as a driver. Charles adapted to the circuit quickly and proved to be a natural on the 13km course topping the 991 Cup car class in all four sessions. In free practice 1, with a lap time of 4 minutes 10 seconds, Charles finished P2 overall! In free practice 2 he knocked 2 seconds off his best lap time and finished P5 overall. Porsche provided coaching with 2-time Le Mans winner and ex-Porsche driver Sacha Massen. Charles was able to spend some time with Sascha and compare data from his car. Sascha recognised Charles’ abilities and challenged him to put in a 4:06 lap time. In Friday’s qualifying session Charles did just that. With a lap time of 4:06.8 he qualified 6th overall and took the 991 class pole position. The race was drama free, Charles maintained his position winning the 991 class and crossing the line 6th overall. Following our support race, we headed down to the main grand stand to watch the start of the 24 hour. What a weekend!
