De los Milagros, Fontes, Guerra and Paulet take second place finish in Pergusa with BMW M4 GT4

13.10.2020: The all-Spanish driver line-up delivered a faultless performance during the 12-hour Coppa Florio event, which counted towards the 24H Series Europe and took place at Enna-Pergusa circuit. De los Milagros, Fontes, Guerra and Paulet were the fastest GT4-spe


The all-Spanish driver line-up delivered a faultless performance during the 12-hour Coppa Florio event, which counted towards the 24H Series Europe and took place at Enna-Pergusa circuit.

 

De los Milagros, Fontes, Guerra and Paulet were the fastest GT4-spec car with their Sorg Rennsport-run BMW M4 and recovered lost ground as they handed a ten-lap penalty as a result of a differential change after the first six hours. Series debutants Paulet and Guerra excelled due to their speed and adaptation  


 
A remarkable result was the achievement of the first all-Spanish driver line up entering the Coppa Florio event at Autodromo di Pergusa last weekend. The Sicilian race saw José Manuel De los Milagros, Álvaro Fontes, Sergio Paulet and Yannick Guerra playing a key role at the wheel of the Sorg Rennsport-entered BMW M4 GT4 and claimed a well-deserved podium finish, which was a fair reward after twelve hours of intense racing.



Unlike De los Milagros and Fontes, neither Guerra nor Paulet had previous experience on the international stage, they both adapted quickly and their lap times proved to be almost immediately competitive on Pergusa driving the BMW M4. De los Milagros clocked a lap time of 1m47.469s, which was third-fastest in the GT4 class behind the McLaren and the Aston Martin.



On Saturday, De los Milagros took the opening stint and got caught in a sensational battle against the Aston Martin and the McLaren before handing over the BMW to Guerra, Paulet and Fontes. As the Equipe Verschuur-run McLaren experienced mechanical issues, the GT4 class honors was a head-to-head battle involving the Spanish BMW and the ProSpeed-entered Aston Martin. After the first six hours, the Sorg Rennsport BMW finished second behind the ProSpeed Aston Martin but handed a ten-lap penalty for Sunday following a differential change at night.



On Sunday, the four Spanish drivers focused on gaining as much lost ground as possible but a puncture in the first hour cost them two additional laps. At the end of the race, Sorg Rennsport reduced the gap and a mere six laps was the difference after completing 262 laps.



“I enjoyed every minute of this first taste of international racing” explained Paulet underlining that “it took me a while to understand how properly braking but on Sunday I managed to do it without problems. I tried to learn from Yannick, who was also a debutant and finally my lap times worked. I would like to thank Álvaro and José Manuel because they helped me a lot.” Guerra also explained that “it was a fantastic opportunity to contest the Coppa Florio.



I just arrived at the very last moment but I immediately felt at home. It was a steeping learning curve and I feel happy with our result. Human qualities really helped us.” “I want to highlight how well everybody performed throughout the weekend and particularly Sergio and Yannick on their international debut. It was a stroke of luck to put together such a competitive driver line-up.




Without our differential issues and an unlucky puncture we would have taken a commanding class win. But that is racing” remarked Fontes. Finally, De los Milagros said “except for a couple of setbacks, everything worked like clockwork. I would like to emphasize how well Sergio and Yannick performed. And I also want to thank Eduardo Cañada, our engineer, because he also played a key role informing us about traffic and almost every racing situation encountered. Well done everybody!”
