Cayrolle and Santamato put Street-Art Racing on the podium again in Dijon!

04.07.2017: Following the podium place at the Red Bull Ring during the GT4 European Series Northern Cup, the Belgian team StreetArt-Racing

Following the podium place at the Red Bull Ring during the GT4 European Series Northern Cup, the Belgian team StreetArt-Racing took a second place in Dijon, where the third round of the GT4 European Series Southern Cup, also called the FFSA French GT4 Championship, took place. The result was down to the efforts of Arno Santamato and Eric Cayrolle.
 




At StreetArt-Racing, everyone was smiling on Sunday evening in the paddock of the Dijon-Prenois Circuit. At the wheel of their Aston Martin Vantage GT4 #117, Arno Santamato and Eric Cayrolle had their best race since the start of the Championship with a second place in the Pro-Am category at stake.
 


“It was a great comeback after the tricky start to the weekend,” explained Eric Cayrolle. “In the rain, we were unable to perform to our potential, as the power and the torque of our Aston Martin made it difficult to overcome the conditions.



 But the return of dry weather finally enabled us to show our true strength on a track well suited to the Vantage GT4. With Magny-Cours, Barcelona and Paul Ricard still on the programme, I would like to say that our season really began here.”
 
 
 
Successfully climbing from 19th to 4th place in the first half-hour of the race, Arno Santamato was also delighted with the way everything went. “I don’t think I have ever passed so many cars in so short a time,” he smiled.



 “I passed at least one rival each lap! Unfortunately, we lost time at the driver change-over. This is something Eric and I must work on because the seatbelt straps are not easy to find quickly. Without that we might even have won the Pro-Am today. But we cannot disguise our pleasure.”
 

Driving #007, Jérôme Demay and Sébastien Pineau were not so successful. The reigning Am champion in the Northern Cup supported his friend Sébastien, who had everything to learn. “I had never driven a GT4 car before, and therefore never a Vantage,” Sébastien explained.



“But I am agreeably surprised by the car. Although it was difficult in the rain, I enjoyed it immensely and the atmosphere in the team was great. I must say that I always have a good feeling with the Belgians… “
 
 
 
In the StreetArt-Racing team, the second place of Arno Santamato and Eric Cayrolle at Dijon adds to a harvest of awards which already includes a podium place – by Jérôme Demay and Denis Dupont – in the GT4 European Series Northern Cup at the Red Bull Ring.



“This obviously boosts the confidence of the entire team,” rejoices Damien Hellebuyck, Team Manager of the Belgian outfit. “Clearly, we can see, with time, how relations between the drivers and our team are developing. We have a better understanding of what they want and vice versa. Our Aston Martin Vantage GT4 has also proved to be extremely competitive. In the two championships, everything is coming together and I am looking forward to what follows!”
 



What follows will be in Slovakia, at the Slovakia Ring, on 15 and 16 July for the fourth round of the GT4 European Series Northern Cup. And as for the GT4 European Series Southern Cup, it will continue on 8 to 10 September at Magny-Cours.
