Sant’Agata Bolognese/Spa, July 28, 2017.
Round 4 of the Lamborghini Super Trofeo took place at the famous Spa Francorchamps circuit in Belgium. The duo of Jefferies and Breukers went into the event with the main goal of closing the gap in points to their championship rivals Vito Postiglione and Jonny Ceccotto Jnr who race for the Imperiale outfit.
The weekend started off wet, and as we have seen many times this year Axcil continued to show his dominance in wet conditions placing P1 before handing the car to team mate Rik Breukers.At the end of FP1 the circuit started to dry and the duo ended the session in P2.
However in FP2 the weekend took a twist for the worst for the GDL drivers as they faced a mechanical issue that did not allow them to them to take part in what was the only dry session before qualifying. As expected qualifying didn’t go to plan and the duo started on the third and fourth row respectfully in race 1 and 2.
Like we’ve seen many times this year the Middle East champions worked hard with their Engineer Stefano to get a good set up for the #7 Lamborghini and drove two hard and exciting races. Race one; Jefferies started, worked his way from 8th to 4th with some brave passes on the first lap and another dive into the first corner after a safety car to hand over the car to Breukers in the pit stop. Rik brought the car home in P3 and gave the Middle East Championships another podium.
Race two ended up being extremely important for the championship battle. Rik had a strong first stint making up a few positions, pitted and handed the car to Jefferies in second place. Axcil continued his form from race 1 and went on to take a commanding win in the Pro class with some aggressive overtaking. To make the victory sweater the pairings nearest championship rivals crossed the finish line in 6th place bringing the gap down to just two points in the championship heading into the final two race meetings in Nurburgring and Imola.
