|Into the mountains|
|Struggle on french hair-pin roads
Henrik Christensen flew the green colours of Scuderia Into The Red with exceptional spendor at the recent mountain race through the exhausting curves and climbs of Clermont-Ferrand in the French Massif Centrale.
Star driver Michael Andersen held pole-position almost until end of practice, but was excelled by fellow Cooper-driver Lars Gaarde by less than a half second before it was time to start racing. A horrendous mass-pile-up on L1 sent the ITR hero right to the back of the race, though.
Søren Bærholm was accidentally shunted off by BRM-driver Søren Mortensen in T1 right after the starting-grid, and he was forced to follow the race from the pits, where he was comforted by the pretty Bella Lago models.
Only ITR-entrant to benefit from the massive caramboulage was the team manager. Per Einarsson rose to a solid P5 after a few laps, but settled at around P10 when the faster competitors started to gain speed.
Unfortunately the pit-board girls were to busy attending to Bærholm in the pits, which led to the Boss not acquiring information about the standings and thus retiring the blue Cooper-Maserati without taking the chequers!
