Lausitzring, Race 1: Auto Leclerc takes its first victory of the season

Under the sun exactly… The inaugural meeting of the Lamera Cup got off to a great start. Better: the 1-hour race 4 scheduled for this Saturday revealed just how good the 2024 vintage is. The proof is the small gap which separated the car of the reigning champions (and which proudly wears the number 1) from its most serious rival, the 80 in the colors of Continental: the tire manufacturer, also official supplier of the Lamera Cup.

The last hour of the race was particularly thrilling between these two cars which are already candidates for the crown. But there will certainly be more of them who want to style it. Notably the 75 Elite which finished 1 lap away.

Behind this trio, the 35 (Athena by Hedonic) won the prize in the Pro/Am category while the 72 (GDM Racing) crossed the line in 11th position while clearly imposing itself among the gentlemen.

This 4-hour ordeal, as thrilling as it was, was nevertheless only a pleasant warm-up. This Sunday, the main course will consist of a 7 a.m. race. However, it will be interrupted by a welcome lunch break.

The 4 Hours classification:
1st and winner in Elites (1) L’Auto Leclerc 104 laps; 2. (80) CTF Continental Racing at 2,229 sec; 3. (75) GL Elite at 56,350 sec; 4. 1st in Pro/Am (35) at 2.35, 130; 11 and 1st in Gentlemen (32) Race Track by Kirch at 3 laps.
