Thursday evening the VPR team took to the Lime Rock Park circuit for round five of the TORA Touring Masters series.
VPR’s Select Veepz took 2nd place in lobby A, race one and Nutter took 3rd in the same lobby. AnonCaliga in lobby B took 12th place in race one.
Race two and again Select Veepz demonstrated his pace by crossing the finish line taking 1st in lobby A and Nutter followed taking 4th in the same lobby. AnonCaliga in lobby B crossed the line where he started, although AnonCaliga was set to take 8th place until another car collided with his in the closing laps of race two seeing AnonCaliga limp across the line in 12th position.
The final race of the evening was another fourteen lap sprint race and after some fiery exchanges between drivers in lobby B not helped by numerous collisions caused by one driver in the lobby AnonCaliga again set to finish his race well into the top ten until on the final lap, two corners from the finish line a chasing car tried to make a space where there was none, the chasing car tagged AnonCaliga’s VPR BMW M3 spinning him off the track. The car that caused the incident also lost out by then being hit by another fast approaching car. AnonCaliga again finished by limping across the line in 12th in lobby B. Select Veepz in lobby A took 4th and Nutter crossed the line slightly ahead by taking 2nd.
After round five Virtual Pirtek Racing now move from 2nd position in the TORA Touring Masters team standings up into first place overall. Round six of the Touring Masters series will be held at Monza on the 23rd June where VPR hope to further their points tally to keep the team in the top spot of the team standings.
