GT1 Spa: Second Phoenix Corvette rising from the ashes?
After the fire at Silverstone Phoenix Racing only entered one Corvette C6.R at the FIA GT1 World Championship rounds at Brno and Paul Ricard. Regular driver Mike Hezemans moved to Mad Croc Racing where he joined fellow Dutchman Xavier Maassen. The Hezemans-Maassen duo was set to get into action again at Spa…but things can change.
Our Belgian colleagues at Racingworld.be confirmed that Mike Hezemans will not be racing the Mad Croc Racing Corvette this weekend but his seat will instead be taken by another Dutchman…Jos Menten. For Menten it means the return to the FIA GT1 World Championship, after racing at Silverstone in the Reiter Lamborghini. Menten also raced the same (DKR) Corvette in 2006 and won last year’s Total 24 Hours of Spa in another Corvette C6.R.
With Menten moving to Mad Croc it seems likely that Mike Hezemans will return with the number 14 Phoenix Racing / Carsport Corvette that is currently on the official entry list with its drivers to be announced – as it was for the previous two rounds.
