Great responses for Lennox Racing Team in the last round of the WSK Final Cup

After the good result achieved at South Garda, our team worked hard to bring some significant updates already for the events at Franciacorta, a rather different circuit by characteristics but equally challenging to deal with for the drivers. The team was represented in OK Junior by Mees Houben and by Louis Castellini and Ean Eyckmans in the OK category.

Eyckmans started his own weekend well on Friday in OK since qualifying, giving continuity to the excellent performance of the first round of the season. The Belgian finished 5th in his group (P10 overall), while Louis Castellini concluded 20th due to traffic that slowed him down a lot despite a far better pace. However, the Monegasque immediately recovered well in the first heat, which ended in P11 after a great comeback. On Saturday, strong pace once again for Eyckmans who managed to get a 5th place in the first heat of the day, but then an unlucky retirement in the second one dropped him back in the standings and forced him to start the Prefinal in P15.

More bad luck came for Castellini, who has been slowed due to some contacts and could not fight for better positions. Both our drivers, however, experienced a simply amazing Sunday: in the Final, in fact, Eyckmans was once again among the fastest on the track and finished once again 4th after an extraordinary comeback of eight positions, while Castellini managed both to qualify and to hit a P27.

Houben also had a strong start to his weekend with a great performance in qualifying, setting the 5th fastest time as well as 13th overall in a category as packed and competitive as OKJ. Unfortunately, a couple of hectic days strongly affected the Dutchman’s overall performance in the heats, due in particular to some tricky situations which generated some contacts on track. After a P29 overall in the heats, Mees was not able to pick himself up and find the speed to gain access to the final but still fought until the last useful second.

Jordon Lennox-Lamb, Team Manager: “We were penalized by some unfortunate events, but once again we showed great strength in overall performance. We are growing a lot and our upgrades, though minimal, have given us an extra boost: we hope to always progress to fight for more great results”.
