Day 2 at Le Mans

The second day of the penultimate race weekend of the European season was an interesting day for Terry and the T Sport Racing Team. The weather was very unpredictable with heavy rain showers passing over the circuit making track conditions very tricky for truck racing. Terry took to the track for qualifying, a lot of the teams struggled with their set up for the weather conditions, T Sport Racing included. Terry pushes as hard as he felt he could but ultimately was only able to achieve 14th for the race start.

The first race came around and Terry got off to a good start. However, on the first lap a fellow driver, Luis Recuenco, spun out in front of him. As much as Terry tried, contact could not be avoided and Terry collided with Recuencos truck. Once Terry managed to rejoin the track he was at the back of the pack and due to damage to the front of the race truck, including a smashed windscreen, he was unable move back up the field.

The team worked hard between the 2 races to repair the front of the truck in time for the second race. Replacing most of the front panels and of course the broken windscreen.

The second race started better, with the track conditions a little better than earlier in the day. Terry started 16th following the result of the first race. Staying out of trouble and racing hard, Terry managed to climb up the order, finishing in a very respectable 12th place by the chequered flag, 5th in the Grammer Truck Cup competitors.

The team are now busy packing everything away before the entire paddock moves straight down to Jarama circuit near Madrid in Spain for the final weekend of the 2019 European Truck Racing Championship in only 5 days time.
