Lichfield racer Adam Christodoulou has described his successful weekend at Spa as “an incredible effort”.
The city speedster took part in the 24-hour event as well as a number of support races.
The latter saw him join the Pro Sports Performance team and after taking over the drive in third, Christodoulou managed to take advantage of a battle between the two cars in front of him to slip ahead and secure a second place finish.
He then secured sixth place in a GT4 race before climbing behind the wheel of the Black Falcon Mercedes GT3 in the 24-hour race.
Team-mate Thomas Jager moved the car into the top ten before pit problems saw them drop back to 55th.
But a new gameplan saw the team claw their way back into the top 20 after 12 hours.
Christodoulou took a double stint when he eventually got behind the wheel – a gruelling two hours ten minute block each time.
And the hard work paid off with the team recovering from their earlier issues to finish fourth in their class and eighth overall.
“It’s been a incredible effort from the whole team,” the Lichfield driver said.
“We’ve done incredibly well to finish where we have when you consider that this race started with 24 full pro cars on the grid.”
Christodoulou’s next race is at Anderstorp in Sweden for round four of five in the European GT4 Championship, which will be held on August 17.
