Having had a short break over the summer whilst the championship’s sports cars visited the infamous Nurburgring, it was all the more exciting to see Liam Sullivan behind the wheel of the mighty Mini. The weekend was Liam’s first outing at the circuit and he was eager to impress. Despite beautiful weather all weekend, a freak rainstorm provided a wet track for qualifying – conditions that suited the Mini perfectly. The car qualified first in class and sixth overall. On race day, the scene was set for a win - Liam set the fastest lap in the Minis. Unfortunately, just as he was completing his final lap before the driver change, major technical issues prevented Sullivan from making it back to the pits. Liam finished the race on the back of a recovery vehicle, minus a wheel that had broken off owing to some malfunctioning parts. Sullivan’s confidence and enthusiasm was not fazed, waving to a cheering crowd from the back of the lorry. Hopefully Spa gives him more to celebrate.
