TF Sport dominated the opening round of the European Le Mans Series at Silverstone, taking the LM GTE class victory by a comfortable margin.
Heading to Monza this weekend (19 – 21 May, 2017) for round two of the championship – the 4H of Monza – the team are seeking a repeat result, but aware that the competition will be stronger in Italy.
Featuring an unchanged driver line-up of Salih Yoluc, Euan Hankey and Nicki Thiim, TF Sport aims to build on the successful Monza test that took place in March.
“Winning at this level is never easy, but in saying that we had a fairly easy run at Silverstone to take a comfortable win,” said TF Sport Director Tom Ferrier. “Monza is a different challenge, very high speed, but testing was good despite missing the final day of running after a small incident.”
In addition to the European Le Mans Series, the team are also competing at Silverstone in the Blancpain Endurance Cup with Jonny Adam and Ahmad Al Harthy, having taken a dramatic victory in Italy last month.
“We won the first races in each championship so are currently leading both and that has to be the aim at the end of this weekend,” said Ferrier. “Obviously, it would be great to win both again but strong points is the aim.”
The 4H Monza starts at 13.30 local time on Sunday 15 May.
