Spa-Francorchamps. The Dutch pairing Jos Menten and Xavier Maassen in corvette #11 scored a first pole and a maiden victory for Mad Croc Racing in the FIA GT1 World Championship on the legendary Belgian track Spa-Francorchamps.
On Friday morning the #11 Corvette was fastest in qualifying, so the Mad Croc Corvette started on pole for the first race of the weekend. Jos Menten: “It’s nice to be back again, and nice to see that the other car I drove is also so good. It was a late call, and to go with someone who lives 30 km from me is also nice, we can speak the same dialect. To be on pole and to come here is always nice. Normally I don’t get a hotel here because I live an hour from the track, but yesterday it finished at 1 am, and this morning, back at 7, so it was a bit tiring. But being on pole, I don’t feel so tired anymore.” The #12 sister car of Oliver Gavin and Pertti Kuismanen finished in 16th position.
