Isaac Tutumlu Forced To Retire On Saturday

Unlucky race for Isaac Tutumlu as the Spanish driver of Kurdish descent was forced to retire when his teammate Maxime Soulet was driving. After a minor collision involving Zampieri when the Belgian driver was fifth, the Chevrolet had to pit because of the car hood flew open while driving. Tomorrow Tutumlu and Soulet will start 7th .

Isaac Tutumlu and Barzani Racing Team were forced to retire during race one at Hungaroring, where the International GT Open celebrates its fourth round. In the early hours of the morning the Spanish driver with Kurdish ancestry qualified 5th on the starting grid and, despite the results yesterday were brilliant, today´s race was not looking simple as Ferrari cars were too competitive in comparison to other cars.

Tutumlu completed a good first stint running in 5th place and, after 30 minutes into the race, pitted to hand over to Maxime Soulet. Belgium´s driver rejoined the race 6th and when was already fifth, behind Miguel Ramos and Daniel Zampieri, a small collision between Soulet and Zampieri resulting in damage to the bonnet. Shortly after, when Soulet was 4th , the hood flew open and it left him with no choice but pitting. After repairing the damage, Soulet rejoined the race but retired as any chance was gone.

"It is a real shame because the fourth place and second in Super GT class were at our fingertips. But for Maxime, after the problem with the bonnet, was forced to pit. There was no other choice. Although we were able to rejoin the race, our podium chances were definitively gone. I must also mention that the BoP is deeply unfair, because we have no options against Ferrari cars. Let´s see how tomorrow goes, but in the current circumstances our race will be difficult again", Tutumlu said.

Tomorrow´s race starts at 13.00 (CET). Tutumlu and Soulet will be 7th on the starting grid.
