Another first for Inter Europol Competition

Another first for Inter Europol Competition

It's a lot of firsts this trip for the Inter Europol Competition team. First time with the Asian Le Mans series, first time in China, first time on pole with the LMP3 (not the first win though!) and now for the first time in Japan.

Kuba Smiechowski: “I raced the track in the simulator. It looks difficult but fun. I am keen on driving here real time and I think the third sector is important for a good lap time. And of course I hope we can maintain our leadership.”

Martin Hippe: “ After the great weekend in Shanghai I am really happy that is was only a short break before getting back into the car. I hope we can keep the momentum of the last event.”
