Formula One may be having a break this weekend, but everyone at etyres will be waving the flag for our own driving ace, Alex Kapadia, a key member of our tyres team and racing champion.
Alex, who runs his own very successful tyres fitting branches and is also our joint operations manager, is part of the three-man CRT team taking part in the opening race of the European Le Mans Series this weekend.
The fantastically exciting, new-look championship kicks off at Paul Ricard and Alex and the team will be racing with the OrecaFLM-09, alongside LMP2 and GT cars.
Behind the wheel of the CRT’s prototype, will be an all British line up, including John Hartshorne and Phil Keen.
Making his debut for the team and completing the trio is Alex, an experienced Radical European Masters champion, who is already familiar with the FLM-09, having driven in the 6 hours of Estoril last year where he claimed pole position.
The CRT team have already shown strong potential during the Official Test days a few weeks ago, where Phil Keen set the fastest lap in the LMPC class.
