2022 Season

Reema and Adam secured a eighth place in qualifying, lining up on the fourth row for the series’ first endurance race since 2007.

As the race got underway, Reema lost ground at the start after swerving to avoid contact, following a spin in Turn One for the #72 Optimum MotorsportMcLaren.

Despite dropping to 17th, Reema made an incredible charge through the field, bringing her back to 13th in only two laps.

After then battling into the top 10 and into eighth, she went into the pits, handing the car over to her teammate, who rejoined in ninth.

Going head-to-head with the #39 of the Singha Racing Team, the pair duelled for several laps, before making contact in Turn Nine, causing Adam to go off into the gravel.

As a result, the car suffered severe damage, meaning the team was forced to retire from the race and the consecutive race.

Reema Juffali -

“It’s disappointing for our weekend to end like this but that’s motorsport. At the start I was squeezed quite heavily, boxed in and hit from multiple angles which meant that I lost a lot of ground. Despite that, our pace was strong and I was able to fight forward to eighth by the end of my first stint. When Adam got into the car we were in a good position but he was unfortunately wiped out by the #39 Porsche which ended our race. It’s a long season and there are still plenty of opportunities. We just need to keep our heads up and come back fighting next month in Hungary.”
