Last weekend the BELCAR Endurance Series celebrated its big season finale. With the class victory at the weekend the WCB Racing Team by Leipert Motorsport not only won the championship title in class 3, but also celebrates the junior title 2019 with Yannick Hoogaars!
Wegberg, Germany -Tuesday, 22 September 2019
With another class win WCB Racing Team by Leipert Motorsport finished the exciting BELCAR Endurance Series season 2019. The final race was marked by ups and downs, which the team mastered with bravura. Winning the championship title in Class 3 with Jimmy de Breucker and Yannick Hoogaars is the reward for working hard throughout the season.
During the last ten minutes to class win
Starting driver Jimmy de Breucker started last weekend from eighth overall (P2 Class 3), struggled a bit with fog and slippery asphalt, but then handed over the Lamborghini #999 to Yannick Hoogaars on P1 of the class. Only three laps after the mandatory stop of the #999 the safety car had to move up due to an accident. The driver duo lost places, as most of the opponents had not yet completed the mandatory stop at that time and then used the safety car phase.
With a skilful second pit and refueling stop the #999 moved forward again and about ten minutes before the end of the race Yannick Hoogaars regained the lead. The victory was guaranteed for the team! A great success, which was duly celebrated.
Yannick Hoogaars wins the Junior title
After the last race weekend of the BELCAR Endurance Series, everyone agrees: It was an exciting season in which one learned a lot, worked a lot and had a lot of emotions. In the end, the team was rewarded with the championship title in class 3. Furthermore, Yannick Hoogaars is the Junior Champion of the BELCAR Endurance Series Season 2019 - well deserved!
With the last race weekend of the BELCAR Series, Leipert Motorsport has still no end of the season in sight! Already this week the team, supported by MOTUL, competes with three European Lamborghini Super Trofeo and two Asia Super Trofeo cars at the Lamborghini Super Trofeo World Final in Jerez (Spain).
