Cassidy and BMW Juniors celebrate class victory in Brno

After twelve hours of racing at the Automotodrom Brno, Victor Bouveng, Nick Cassidy and Trent Hindman celebrated class victory alongside their chief instructor Dirk Adorf. After 286 laps on the 5.403-kilometre classic circuit, in the number 174 BMW M235i Racing, Bouveng crossed the finish line in 22nd place in the overall standings and as the winner in the strong SP3 class.

“That wasn’t a bad day at all,” commented Cassidy. “It was a great race with BMW Motorsport. I learnt a lot, had some strong stints behind the wheel and really enjoyed it.”

At 12:00 noon, a week after his win at the season finale of the Continental Tire Sports Car Challenge (CTSCC) in Road Atlanta, Hindman started the race from 36th on the grid. Thanks to all of the drivers delivering a flawless performance, the car in action for BMW Motorsport in collaboration with Walkenhorst Motorsport worked its way successively up the field and ended up being the best-placed BMW M235i Racing. Celebrating the surprisingly great success on the podium shortly after midnight was the reward for all of the hard collaborative work over the past few months.

Overall winner was Matteo Malucelli in the Scuderia Praha Ferrari 458 Italia GT3 (#11, Jiri Pisarik/Jaromir Jirik/Matteo Malucelli/Peter Kox) and thus claimed victory in the Hankook 12H EPILOG BRNO, the final round of the 2015 24H SERIES powered by Hankook. In total, the Italian and his team-mates completed 324 laps of the 5.403 kilometres long circuit.
