RESERVOIR WATCH OFFICIAL WATCHMAKER OF THE IDEC SPORT RACING TEAM FOR ELMS 2021 SEASON WITH THE GT TOUR CARBON RACING DRIVER CHRONOGRAPH WATCH
For the 2nd European Le Mans Series meeting of the 2021 season, IDEC SPORT is heading to Spielberg, Austria, to compete in the 4 hours of the Red Bull Ring. Forty-one cars will compete on the Austrian track. IDEC SPORT is entering its LMP2 Oreca there, the # 28 led by the trio Paul Lafargue, Patrick Pilet and Paul-Loup Chatin. The pilots will wear a RESERVOIR GT TOUR Carbon racing driver chronograph watch during the race.
“It’s a nice track with a lot of pace because it’s a small track. It’s not technical like Barcelona but we have to go through clear sections. You have to find the right settings on the car to have traction because there is heavy braking and important revivals. The key will be traffic management because that can quickly break our pace, especially since we will no longer suffer with the lack of power this year. So the qualifications will be of real importance. Especially since we arrive in a pack at the first corner at the start, with a quick entry and a narrow exit “explains Paul Lafargue.
Two collective tests are scheduled for Thursday from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. and from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. Free practice 1 will take place on Friday from 1 p.m. to 2:30 p.m. The second session will take place Saturday from 10 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. Saturday, before the 10 minutes of qualifying which will be launched at 3:30 p.m. for LMP2. The start of the 4 hours of the Red Bull Ring will be given at 11 a.m. on Sunday 16 May.
