Isaac Tutumlu has had an very positive day during his debut in the Endurance Trophy IberGT at the Circuit de Valencia, and being his first outing with Drivex Porsche 911 GT3 RSR as well. After finishing his season in the Porsche Supercup, Tutumlu is pretty positive concerning tomorrow´s endurance race where he is teaming with Miguel Ángel de Castro and Alan Sicart.

In spite of his inexperience with the car, Tutumlu exhibited a quick adaptation at the wheel of the German vehicle and he was able to post times close to the leaders even in the free practice sessions.

For the Spanish driver of Kurdish heritage his main target was to put experience under his belt working on the car and with Drivex, but that inexperience didn´t prevent him to show his speed in qualifying. With de Castro posting a best lap of 1:37.355 in Q1, Tutumlu improved to set a time of 1:35.686 and being 2nd in Q2. In fact this lap is the fastest one ever for a Porsche 911 GT3 RSR in Valencia, because last year champion couldn´t go any faster than 1:47. The grid position was decided by the average lap of all the drivers, and Tutumlu and his teammates will start on the third row of the starting grid tomorrow with a lap of 1:36.763.

"I feel really happy, because it was my debut with Drivex today and driving an official car. I have showed progress over the course of the day, and using my experience with other Porsche cars during recent seasons. Everything worked fine in Q2 and I was 2nd. In addition, my record lap beating the previous record by more than a second is another fantastic new", the 27 years old driver explained. For tomorrow, "our target is to complete a good race, and I am aiming for first Kurdish podium during an international race. Anyway I now it´s going to be tough because there are six cars within one second".

The race, consisting of 130 minutes, will start at 12.15 (CET).
