And while Sandy and his K-Pax team have completed successful test days at the track, Saturday’s six-hour endurance race will mark the Scot’s first race return to the French circuit since he finished second in the Pro-Am class in 2020.
“It will be fantastic to be back racing at Paul Ricard,” the 23-year-old from Forfar, personally-backed by Huntly-based Black Bull Scotch Whisky, stated. “I love the six-hour race because it starts in daylight and finishes in the darkness. It’s also a tough event for everyone concerned, plus it’s a 57-car grid, the biggest at Paul Ricard since 2017.”
“The Lamborghini is perfectly suited to the fast, sweeping nature of the 3.5-mile circuit, and I know the whole team, plus Franck, Marco and I are determined to score the podium we were cruelly denied in Monza. “Plus we have another big target. Paul Ricard is one of the few GT Europe tracks a Lamborghini hasn’t delivered an outright win. This weekend would be a good time to change that.”
