Lucchini and Sultanov share Blancpain GT Sports Club victories at Circuit Paul Ricard

02.06.2019: BMS Scuderia Italia's Luigi Lucchini and Kessel Racing's Murod Sultanov took a win apiece in round two of the Blancpain GT Sports Club at Circuit Paul Ricard in France.

BMS Scuderia Italia's Luigi Lucchini and Kessel Racing's Murod Sultanov took a win apiece in round two of the Blancpain GT Sports Club at Circuit Paul Ricard in France.



ERC Sport's Lee Mowle and HP Racing International's Coach McKansy topped the Titanium Cup classes, as AF Corse's Louis Philippe Soenen and Kessel's Stephen Earle shared Iron Cup honours.
 


Luigi Lucchini, #7 BMS Scuderia Italia, Overall Winner (Race 1)
: “The start was fundamental because I got into first position and tried to push hard. The Honda had a couple of mistakes, so I had an early advantage. I pushed throughout the entire race, because Jens was very quick despite spinning. It was a really fantastic and tough race.”



Lee Mowle, #44 ERC Sport, Titanium Cup Winner (Race 1):
“I never really got a lap time in the qualifying and ended up way down on where we should be. Fortunately, the race is 45 minutes so you can just slowly make your way up.”



Louis Philippe Soenen, #50 AF Corse, Iron Cup (Race 1):
“I am very happy with my performance in race one. We were consistent and the car is perfect, this is a great victory.”



Murod Sultanov, #23 Kessel Racing, Overall Winner (Race 2)
: “At the beginning I didn’t want to take any risks. It was a great result for Kessel Racing. The team fixed my car from race one and it felt fantastic. Thank you to them and the organisation for a good weekend.”



Coach McKansy, #17 HP Racing International, Titanium Cup Winner (Race 2):
“That was much better than the first race. I improved all the time and was able to challenge at the end as my pace was good. I’m very happy with the performance.”



Stephen Earle, #111 Kessel Racing, Iron Cup Winner (Race 2): “
In race one I went from 50 seconds behind to finish just under four seconds off the Iron Cup podium, but we came back in this second race and scored a much better result. The car felt good here, but the track was so hot that it was difficult with the grip. Looking forward to the next one at Misano.”
