Warren takes part in 24 hour race at iconic European race track

Team BRIT driver Warren MicKinlay has returned to the iconic Circuit de Spa Francorchamps in Belgium for the second time this year, to take part in the Citroen C1 endurance race.

Warren, who has been part of the team since 2016 was asked to participate as a guest driver for Philip Gough Racing as they competed in the race last weekend.

Warren joined a team of five drivers, and was able to bring his experience of racing at the iconic circuit, having competed in the 25 hour Fun Cup race with Team BRIT in July this year.

101 cars lined up on the start grid and Warren’s team, driving car 344, finished 18th in class and 36th overall.

Warren said:  I’ll admit I was sceptical about racing for 24 hours in a car that was designed to carry shopping bags around at an economical rate. However, I didn’t get far into my first lap around the famous Belgian circuit before my doubt was gone.

“These funky little town cars produced some of the closest, hard fought racing I have ever been involved in. Lap after lap we drafted each other down the Cemal Straight, trying to break the tow. Going side by side through Pouon in wet conditions gives you a buzz that will be hard to equal.

“We achieved a fantastic result for a team of racers who were new to 24-hour endurance events, and it was great that I was able to contribute learning from my experiences with both KartForce and Team BRIT.”
