Isaac Tutumlu Aiming For Podium In The Ardennes

The experienced Spanish driver of Kurdish heritage continues his participation in the International GT Open, at the wheel of the Chevrolet Corvette C6/ZR1 entered by Selleslagh Racing Team by Barzani. The BoP has been slightly changed for Spa-Francorchamps and the American car will be less strongly penalized compared to previous meetings. .

Isaac Tutumlu and Barzani Racing Team resume their 2014 season in the International GT Open and what better place than Spa-Francorchamps after a long hot summer. At Silverstone, last July, Tutumlu and Barzani Racing Team managed to finish on the podium despite a Balance of Performance strongly penalizing the Chevrolet Corvette C6/ZR1 shared by Tutumlu and his teammate Archie Hamilton. In Belgium the car will be twenty-five kilograms lighter and this detail is an excellent prospect for the duo of Selleslagh Racing Team by Barzani.

“What a long and exhausting wait! But finally we are back, and it is even better as Spa-Francorchamps is always a thrilling venue. We approach the decisive stage of the season, there are still six races left and it means a huge amount of points. My teammate Dimitris Deverikos and I finished second there, as pit strategy was optimal, with the Autorlando Sport Porsche. I am looking forward to racing there once again. It´s such a demanding racing track. I love it!”, Tutumlu stresses. He highlights that “our handicap is 25 kilos lighter this time. On the whole it is not a major contribution as we will improve only a few tenths but at least brakes and other elements will have a normal wear. The car was not built to carry a weight handicap that heavy. Let´s see how weekend´s weather forecast is, because our car weight distribution does not help in wet conditions, and the Chevrolet is maybe less competitive. The entry list looks great again, so we will have to get the most out of the car in order to finish on the podium”.

Friday is completely devoted to free practice sessions, with both qualifying sessions on Saturday morning. Race one – 70 minutes- starts the same day at 16.00. The weekend ends with race two – 60 minutes- on Sunday at 13.00.
