In only their third prototype race, the TF Sport-run crew stood on the top step of the European Le Mans Series podium, as Salih Yoluc, Charlie Eastwood and Harry Tincknell claimed the Pro Am win, in the Racing Team Turkey LMP2 at the 4 Hours of Le Castellet, last weekend. Coming off the back of their overall pole position and debut LMP2 Pro Am podium at the Red Bull Ring, Austria, TF Sport headed to the third round of the 2021 European Le Mans series with a view of continuing their latest successes. The Racing Team Turkey crew utilised the practice sessions leading up to the weekend to perfect set up, and with Eastwood making his debut LMP2 qualifying run, the team were hopeful for a solid grid position. Despite a red flag marring Charlie’s first hot lap, he managed to post a time good enough for third in class and well within the top-10 overall. A superb start by Salih saw him gain two places before turn one. Despite being hit into a spin and losing track position, a great recovery drive by Yoluç meant that he was able to hand over to Charlie, still with a chance of fighting for the podium. Stellar stints by both Eastwood and Tincknell saw them carve through the field and Harry took the flag to secure Pro Am honours for the Turkish entry. Another strong weekend was had for the #95 GTE trio. Pro charger Ross Gunn set the pace for the weekend by placing the Vantage in P1 during the first free practice session and then went on to secure the class pole position, by 0.120s over the rest of the GTE field. Hancock had a stellar opening stint and managed to create a 25-second lead over the remaining GTE field, but this unfortunately went unrewarded due to a safety car being called. A healthy gap was pushed for before Ollie handed over to John who, once again, showed a solid improvement in his performance. It was then Gunn’s job to close up towards the pack ahead and despite having to take an extra stop to replace a puncture, the #95 Pro crossed the line in seventh. Round four of the 2021 European Le Mans Series will take place at Monza, Italy, 10/11 July.
