Two podiums for Marco Werner in Spa & Double victory for ChromeCars in Sunday’s race

Marco Werner finished on the podium twice with the Lotus 87 from the ChromeCars “Black&Gold Collection” in Spa. Werner set the fourth best time in qualifying and started race one on Saturday from the second row of the grid. Christoph D Ansembourg started from pole position with his Williams alongside Steve Hartley in the McLaren M29, who fought hard for laps and crossed the finish line 0.2 seconds behind. Werner took third place on lap three and didn’t relinquish it until the finish. Michael Lyons finished fourth in the second ChromeCars Lotus, winning the “Lauda Class” with it. «Unfortunately there was another problem with the rear left wheel bearing and a few other small things. Things didn’t go so smoothly today and that’s why I have to be satisfied with third place,” said Marco Werner after the race.

On Sunday, the top six started in reverse order, which always creates excitement in the «Masters Racing Legends F1». For Marco Werner that meant starting from row two again. Heavy rain made the start behind the safety car. “Actually, we could have started straight away. There wasn’t that much water left when we were supposed to drive. I like the rain anyway,” Marco Werner grinned after the race. James Davison in the Hill GH1, who started from pole position, could not withstand the pressure from the duo Michael Lyons and Marco Werner for long and so Lyons led the field after the safety car start, which only controlled the field for a few laps due to rain. But Lyons could not withstand Werner’s pressure either and had to let Werner go when the two of them flew side by side towards the “Blanchimont” curve. Werner then pulled away 9 seconds from Michael Lyons in the remaining three laps and distanced third-placed Steve Hartley in the McLaren M29 by a whopping 23 seconds. Werner also set the fastest race lap in the ChromeCars Lotus 87, which was 2.3 seconds faster than the second fastest. Marco Werner and Michael Lyons delivered a one-two at Spa for ChromeCars and the Britec Motorsports team.
