A perfect pitstop ensued. Two laps out the Avon rubber dropped off badly, with the rear like a speedway car. But a problem of such can be over come by a driver who has extroadinary ability to feel how a car is handling. By pushing the front end harder into corners, the balance returned and the lap times improved.
With 8 laps left he was in P6 and closing on the leaders.
Lap 7 and the Ford GT was disposed of.
Next was the Ascari down Hangar Straight.
Then a quick wave to his old Spa 24 Hour GT1 co-driver, Darren Turner, as he was passed, on the outside of the Complex.
Two laps to go. Only the Trackspeed Porsches were ahead. Target = Westbrook!
