– Marius Nicolae

“Race setup was not so great (my fould , because i never done a proper test). After 5 hours of race , was my turn to drive this beast and in my first 45 min i got so nervous because of some lmp’s drivers, so please dont drive anymore like that.”
– Marius Nicolae

“In last 10 min from my first hour, i was thinking to try to do one more hour with this set of tires, but when i check how much from tires i still had…i was OMG ( 15 % on front right tires) of course i cant make it.”
– Marius Nicolae

“So, in my second hour i try to manage the tires and even if i was a bit slow ,my tires was in perfect condition and i was drive like this in my last stint just to stay two hours with one set of tires ………..”

“But i got to drive so slow i cant even go back on my speed , and because of that Eric from Satellite Racing #64 is closing the gap and in last 14 min from the race i was under pressure trying to keep P5 and staying ahead of Satellite Racing. Eric know he had a chance to overtake me , and we started to have a great fight, at some point with 5 min to go he got to overtake me on last corner ,but i was close to him and i know i had one chance to overtake him on first corner because after that i will not catch him anymore,and when i saw he is not going to close the door and the brake lights going ON a bit early compare with my braking point,i just dive inside and that was my great move from entire race.”
