Reema shows strong pace, despite car being retired from second Endurance race of the season.

June 4, 2023

Theeba Motorsport’s second round in the GT World Challenge got off to a strong start, with Reema pushing to her limits across all sessions.


As the first of the team’s three drivers to hit the track on Friday for the Bronze Test, she finished the session in P6 overall and in-class with a best lap time of 1:56.379.


In a combined effort with Ralf and Alain, the team grew in confidence throughout Friday’s practice sessions, ready to hit the ground running for qualifying the next day.


In the Saturday morning session, Reema was in the car for Q2, and along with her co-drivers, qualified in 27th overall out of 57 cars, and fifth in the Bronze cup class.


The race also got off to a positive start, with Reema behind the wheel for the first double stint. She engaged in a midfield battle and was able to perform some strong overtakes. After handing the car over to Alain, the team rejoined ninth in class.


Despite also having a good run, as the car was handed over to Ralf with two hours left on the clock, the Estonian driver reported vibrations, forcing him into an unscheduled stop. After investigating, the team discovered splitter and floor damage that was beyond repair in the time remaining, forcing the team to retire the car.

“I was first behind the wheel and had an enjoyable double stint to begin the race. Unfortunately, after managing to work our way up to P5, we had a mechanical failure with around an hour and a half left to go and had to retire the car. It’s not a great feeling, but this is sometimes the reality of racing. We’ll work hard to come back with the same momentum that we had at the beginning of the race at the next round in Spa.”
