Lichfield racer Adam Christodoulou enjoyed a dream return to the CRS Racing team as he helped secure a podium finish.

Acting as a stand-in driver for the team in the International GT Open at Monza, the city driver was behind the wheel of a Ferrari for the first time.

But he wasn’t phased and bagged a podium finish in the Sunday afternoon race.

Christodoulou explained:

“It’s been a great opportunity to be working with the CRS team again. It was a tough start to the weekend not getting any dry running before qualifying, and I was definitely thrown in the deep end, but the whole team worked extremely hard during the weekend and after race one on Saturday evening.

“The hard work and commitment from the team has shown in race two, every time I jumped in the car it felt better and I drove faster, and to walk away with a podium on my first experience back with the team is fantastic.”

The weekend got off to a damp start as both of Friday’s free practice sessions were run in wet conditions.  With no dry running under their belts the teams went into Saturday’s sunny qualifying sessions blind but the Lichfield man did a great job, matching the seventh place that team-mate Tim Mullen took for race one.

The first race saw the duo bring the car home eighth before Christodoulou fired the car up to fourth spot and handing over to Mullen who brought the car home in third.

CRS Racing boss Mark Busfield said:

“Adam adapted very quickly to the team and to the car and got up to the level he needed to be at very quickly indeed.”
