The first round of RES saw fierce fighting between competitors as they battled for an early advantage in the championship. Several battles took place throughout the field as both LMP2 and GTR3 navigated their way around the challenging track of Portimao.
In the end it was Jonathan Schelstraete who took home victory in the LMP2 class, behind him was Martin Pater who had a hard fought battle for P2, with only 3.5 seconds between him and the P3 and P4 cars of John Dalton and Ben Swarey
In GTR3 we saw the Audi R8 driven by Adrian Holm take the top spot after close fighting throughout the race with the Ford GT's of Jeremy Mook and John Passmore. With such tight competition between the top GT3 cars there was little room for error, which allowed Adrian to get a substantial lead after perfecting his pit stops and using traffic to his advantage throughout the race. Im sure the rest of the GT field will have something to say about this come Shanghai..game on!
