Isaac TutumluThe Spanish driver of Kurdish heritage, at the wheel of his FÖRCH Racing by Lukas Motorsport´s car, was 17th fastest with almost thirty cars taking part this meeting at Spa-Francorchamps of the Porsche Supercup series.

Isaac Tutumlu has had a positive start of the penultimate meeting of Porsche Supercup today, during the event scheduled in Belgium. The Spanish driver of Kurdish ancestry has completed a good free practice session in rainy conditions, with a steady rain falling all the day.

Tutumlu posted a best lap of 2:46.320, putting him 17th in the free practice classification at the end of the day, with almost thirty cars participating. After finishing this first outing at Spa in 2012, Tutumlu explained that “my main concern was avoiding any kind of mistakes, keeping calm at the wheel, because there were tricky conditions and to damage the car wasn´t an option. At the beginning, we considered to stay in the box, because the forecast announces dry weather for tomorrow at 90%”. Anyway the feedback was pretty positive because “I have been quite fast, even we didn´t
use new wet tires in contrast to other drivers. Here new tires mean to improve your time almost two seconds, so we have a good pace so far. The engine is working smoothly after problems in Hungary, and it´s a good thing as well”. Finally, Barcelona´s driver added that “tomorrow is going to be a hard day, because surely I will have to cope with a dry track in qualifying. Anyway, I´m going to work as hard as always and I hope for similar conditions on Sunday, not that crazy weather seen earlier this year”.

The qualifying session, which is 30 minutes long, starts at 12.25 (CET).
