he had in Istanbul, Thomas Erdos set LMP2 pole for RML in
the #25 MG Lola EX264 -this time by almost a second and a
half. After a brilliant start, which saw the Brazilian through
to second overall, the race was stopped as a result of a serious
accident. It was an hour before racing proper resumed, by
which time the track had dried. The initial tyre choice was
less well-suited to the new conditions and Tommy was unable
to fend off the advances from several of the faster LMP1 cars,
but a puncture 20 minutes before his sceduled stop had him
limping carefully back to the pits for a new set. These transformed
the car's pace, but the slow in-lap had cost almost five minutes
and several places. Erdos fought back to tenth overall, third
in LMP2, before handing over to Mike Newton. The MG's revival
continued, with Mike battling through to fourth overall, second
in class. Towards the end of Mike's second stint the recovering
LMP1 Zytek took back one position overall, but Erdos, driving
to the flag, was able to close on the LMP2 class leader, taking
the chequered flag less than half a lap behind. The result
moves Newton and Erdos into second place in the championship.
