This time during the Spa 24h 2010 - taken in the pit lane, whilst the car was refuelling (hence the green earth wire hanging off the back - to prevent sparks).

Spa 24h is a fantastic race, held at one of the best circuits in the world. For 2010, they removed the GT1 cars from the class, so it was a battle between GT2 and GT3 spec cars for outright victory. As such this R8 would have been in with a chance - as the R8s seemingly have the pace to battle with GT2 cars, when the balance of performance isn't weighted too far against them.

Being Spa of course, the weather was unpredictable, with a spot of rain in the early evening being a damper on the atmosphere!
