JRM Racing gearing up for Spa

JRM Racing is preparing for this weekend’s 6-hours of Spa which constitutes round two of the FIA World Endurance Championship.

The Rye-based team enjoyed an impressive endurance race debut with its brand new Honda Performance Development ARX-03a six weeks ago at the Mobil1 12-hours of Sebring.

Having finished the car just days before the race, JRM found itself battling for third place and a podium position before a minor suspension problem meant a final placing of sixth in the LMP1 category and third in the Privateer class.

Since then, the team has stripped and rebuilt the car and carried out a three-day test, before preparing it for the journey to Belgium.

All three drivers - David Brabham, Karun Chandhok and Peter Dumbreck - have raced at Spa before and are familiar with the circuit so the team is in a far better position for this weekend than it was before the race at Sebring.

The first track action was due to commence on Thursday with two free practice sessions. A third practice session will be held on Friday morning. Following a 20-minute warm up on Saturday morning the race gets underway at 2.30pm and finishes six-hours later.
