Marco Werner was the man to beat at Zandvoort. With the cars from the “Black and Gold Collection” from ChromeCars, he achieved two class wins in the LMP2 in the Masters Endurance Legends and won twice in the Masters Racing Legends of Formula 1 model years 66-85.
Best time in free practice, pole position, start and finish victory in race one and victory from grid position five in race two, twice the fastest race lap with reversed starting order of the top six, that was Marco Werner’s haul at the Historic Formula 1 in Zandvoort . “Zandvoort is simply a mega race track, it still has some of the old track layout and I really like it. I have great memories of Zandvoort, as I drove my first Formula Ford race here in 1985 and in 1988 I was able to get my first victory in the Opel Lotus», said a beaming Marco Werner.
In the Masters Endurance Legends, Werner surprisingly set the best time in the first practice session with the ChromeCars Lotus LMP2. But the competition woke up for the second practice session and, as expected, Werner couldn’t keep up the pace against the extremely strong LMP1 Peugeot 90X Diesel. But in the two races it was twice enough for the podium in the overall classification, which brought a class win for the ChromeCars Lotus LMP2 entered by Britec Motorsports. “We didn’t actually expect to get on the podium overall, but we drove two flawless races and had a lot of consistency in the race, which helped us to the podium. Of course we’re more than happy with that,” said Marco Werner after the race. “The first race in particular was a real success with third place, because I was violently turned around on lap one in the fight for second place and fell back to last place. It was a nice race to catch up.”
