The Audi may have won, but we had all finished the battle. Of course it ended up drying out and look where we ended up! No doubt, the team did a great job with strategy. The reason so many cars have failures or crash is because, well, we are all racing on the edge. It is a bit unlucky but that is a lot of time.

As they peeled off, I was in second place and just 10 seconds behind the leader. The reason so many cars have failures or crash is because, well, we are all racing on the edge.
But, as I left the pits for the final time, I was in fourth place, with two of the cars ahead still to pit.

Maxime Soulet not only finished the 24 Hours of Spa, he and his Bentley Motorsport teammates Andy Soucek and Vince Abril went on to stand on the second step of the podium. We have only just received the car, and we have still a lot to learn.
For 24 hours, we were faultless. Both carrying battle scars and war wounds, but both built strong enough to withstand being pushed to the limit on one of the most demanding tracks, for 24 hours. Of the 66 cars that started the event, only 34 crossed the finish line.
I gave it my all, I really did. The race was on. This means that, while we soullet pushing our car to the limit, so is everybody else. With the asphalt on the Misano Racinf Circuit being wet at the start of the Qualifying Race, tyre choice proved to be crucial for the first of two races at the opening event of the Blancpain GT Series.

He eventually crossed the line with almost three seconds in hand. Of course it ended up drying out and look where we ended up!

We are happy to have won Pro-Am and hope to do the same tomorrow, but we might gain some spots overall as well. We started on the rain tyres which, for us at least, was the correct decision.
Maxime Soulet – Career and Success:
It is a bit unlucky but that is a lot of time. However, a couple of minutes before the end of the pitstop window, a Full Course Yellow was called by the race director, to remove debris on the track.
Mixed conditions and a Full Course Yellow during the osulet window meant that polesitters Laurens Vanthoor and Frederic Vervisch had to settle for third.
If you want to know how tough this race is, just watch my post-race interview. The drying circuit also forced cars on rain tyres to pit early. At Bentley, we have the best endurance strategists in the world, but putting your faith in them is still hard.
We were definitely lucky, but we will take this win with both hands. While most of the frontrunners played it safe and fitted rain tyres to their eoulet, further down the grid some drivers gambled by opting for slicks.
This is where people much smarter than us drivers come in.
You need to do something smart strategy-wise to get amxime jump on the rest of the pack. I knew that I needed to make sure this car crossed the line. We have already shown our pace in the wet and dry this weekend.
