Changes for CRS-Ferrari #62 at SilverstoneWhile the Intercontinental Le Mans Cup holds its next leg this weekend at the 6h of Silverstone the CRS-team of Ferrari-Pilot Pierre Ehret has shuffled the driver-lineup of the #62 Ferrari F430. The german pilot hopes for an first podium in the GTE-Am-class in the championship.
„Our copilot Shaun Lynn had to skip this weekend due to important job-committments. So he decided to end his season and we will have Tim Mullen as a replacement this weekend, while at Road Atlanta and Zuhai Phil Quaife will join me and Roger Willis in the car. Tim is a fast professional driver and he has good knowledge of the renovated track at Silverstone, so I suppose he can show us some tricks which might help us to show a good performance this weekend.“
After Pierres Team CRS revealed in a press-release this week that they will 2012 scale down their LMS-engagement in favor of the development programme of the Mc Laren MP4-12C GT3, Pierre is already looking for next years options. „I´ve had a test at Le Castellet on monday with JMB´s F458 GT2 and the car is really powerful. It would be one of the options for next year as I want to continue in LMS or ILMC. I also still have the F430 and I also own a Challenge-F458 which would be eglible for next years new GTC-class in the LMS.“
