P5 in Sunday-Race of VPRC at Daytona International Speedway

The second race of the new VP Racing SportsCar Challenge started with several accidents. After only a few meters, the race director had to call for a “Full Course Yellow” and send the safety car onto the track.

After a few laps there was the green flag again. Mirco Schultis at the wheel of our H&R Duqueine Automotive D08 #18 could not avoid a collision with another competitor at the restart and had to contest the rest of the 45-minute sprint race without his left fender. While Mirco had decided to do his laps even with the compromised aerodynamics, the Mühlner crew had already prepared everything for a possible pit stop and provided both fresh tires and a new nose for the LMP3.

However, Mirco remained focused and finished his race with full commitment.

The next round of the VPRC will be held in Sebring begin of March.
