Crowded House
Chaos at the French Grand Prix


After two intense weeks of preparation the DGPLS race at Rouen-les-Essarts was run on two servers - with ITR participation on both.

On server 1 Michael Andersen came round dead-last after the first lap, but ran a splendid race at a very stable pace and came in as P12 - 1 minute 52 seconds down on the winner.

On Server 2 Henrik Christensen steered his red Cooper-Maserati through tough competition and finished in top-flight as P6. He was met by a cheering girl-mob when he returned to the ITR pits, where all the Bella Lago models absolutely crowded the red machine, and pulled the exhausted fighter out of his seat.

The Boss of all Bosses, team manager Per Einarsson, was shunted twice on the opening lap and was forced to pit in for repairs before taking on the fight, which led to a very fine P13.

Søren Bærholm hustled the green V12-Cooper at an amazing speed for the first 6 laps but then ran into trouble: "somehow the car never regained the feel it had from the start. I can't explain it ..." uttered the tired driver after the race.

The green machines of Per Einarsson and Søren Bærholm are trapped between lesser material during the first hectic seconds of the race on Server 2
