Walker headlines V festival at Hockenheim

Monday, June 17, 2013 - 13:30
V6-powered cars dominated proceedings as Lotus Cup Europe returned to Germany.

Jon Walker powered his Exige to two close victories from Evora-mounted Gregory Rasse at Hockenheim, with Nikolaj Ipsen’s Exige and Thierry Verheist’s Evora completing the top four.

The 2-Eleven of Jean-Pierre Genoud-Prachex and Herbert Mezker’s four-cylinder Exige prevented Nick Walker making it a V6 top five lockout in race one and two respectively. The pair celebrated with class victories in both races, whilst David Harvey’s Open class win places the veteran’s 340R second in the title race overall behind Rasse.

Thomas Dehaibe continued his winning form in the Production class, whilst Laurent Feve and Charlotte Burridge completed both class podiums. The next round of Lotus Cup Europe will be a non-championship race with Lotus Cup UK at Spa-Francorchamps on 11-13 July.
