Richard Lyons Press Release
SuperGT doesn't get any hotter than this. Temperatures as high as 38°C were recorded at the Chang International Circuit located in Thailand's Buriram province.
With a solid qualifying behind them and an already proven race pace, hopes were high of a good result here in Thailand. Unfortunately things were not to work out this time for the number 21 R8 Ultra in the challenging heat and humidity.
“Not the result we were hoping for! Starting from 7th gave us hope of a podium finish but after only a few laps it was clear we had big engine overheating issues. Unfortunately when I took over the wheel on lap 23 things didn't get any better with a further delay in the pit stop. I was then able to record fast laps but being a lap down already meant it was in vain. In the end we retired a few corners from the chequered flag”.
“I am now only looking forward to the next races and can't wait to be back on the podium soon!”.
