Hezemans’ teammate Giorgio Maggi, who grabbed the pole position in the ELITE 2 Division, will now have to rely on the team’s ability to bring back the #50 Ford Mustang for the ELITE 2 race this afternoon.
“I’m really disappointed, because the car felt great the whole race,” said Hezemans. “There were no signs of an engine failure. I came down the straight, hit the brake and shifted normally to third but the engine blew up. We were just unlucky. I hope the guys can fix it, as Giorgio deserves to defend his ELITE 2 championship lead.”
