SpeedHouse : Confirmed as a Powerhouse in the EuroNASCAR GP UK

SpeedHouse, in front of 50,000 spectators at Brands Hatch, once again brought both cars to the Superpole of the PRO category on Saturday and secured 2 podium finishes with Lucas Lasserre, while Ulysse Delsaux finished in the leading group in both races. In EN2, Florian Richard continued his growth with an excellent placement and a podium on Rookie Trophy as the winner, while Arianna Casoli confirmed her standing in the Lady Trophy with a remarkable performance.

The challenging Brands Hatch circuit, with its ups and downs and those oh-so-close barriers, set the stage for free practice. SpeedHouse cars breezed through the test program without a hitch and, confident in a great setup, eagerly awaited Saturday morning’s qualifying.

Lucas Lasserre and Ulysse Delsaux glided into the top 10 qualifying spots like it was no big deal, securing their spots in the Superpole. SpeedHouse practically called dibs on the third row of the grid with Lucas in 5th and Ulysse in 6th.

In the two races, affected by some thrilling ‘double files’ restarts after Safety Car periods, Lucas Lasserre kept it cool, bagging a third and a second place finish. Meanwhile, Ulysse Delsaux, on a track where passing is like threading a needle, nailed down two solid seventh place finishes.

Lucas Lasserre : « Finishing 2nd and 3rd at Brands Hatch this weekend has been an incredible experience. This circuit holds special memories for Speedhouse, and it feels fantastic to add to that legacy with these podium finishes. The team has worked tirelessly to get us here, and their dedication and support have been instrumental in our success. Brands Hatch is a place where we’ve always felt a strong connection with fans, and achieving these results here is particularly meaningful. Thank you to everyone who has supported us, and I’m looking forward to continuing this momentum in the upcoming races. »

Ulysse Delsaux : « Happy with this weekend. In qualifying, I made it to the SuperPole for the second time this year after Vallelunga. During the first race, I was able to keep up with the leaders. In the second race, despite the contacts I had, and the Safety Car, I managed to finish the race maintaining a good pace on a track where overtaking is difficult. These are good points for the championship. Thank you to all my partners and everyone who supports me. »

For Florian Richard and Arianna Casoli, the rendezvous with the Brands Hatch circuit was a high-tension showdown. It was a brand-new, quirky track for Florian; for Arianna, it was like a thorn in her side, always suffering from the track’s ups and downs in Kent.

Qualifying was a blast for Florian, snagging an impressive 9th place, right on the tail of the leaders, while Arianna was still on a quest for the perfect driving style. The two races were packed with bumper-to-bumper action, Safety Car chaos, and plot twists galore. Richard fought like a warrior, finishing 8th in Race 2, landing him on the Rookie Trophy podium as the Winner. As for Arianna Casoli, it was a double whammy in the Lady Trophy, and in Race 2, she finally cracked the code, finishing close to the pack with a much-improved race pace.

Florian Richard :  » Despite the first race which was complicated by a racing incident, on Sunday we got the job done after an incredible and complicated race!
« P1 Rookie and P8 overall! Good work always pays off!
« A big thank you to Lucas Lasserre for the guidance and to the SpeedHouse family! To my golden mechanics’ crew! My parents, my family and friends! »

Despite enduring shoulder pain, the exceptional car and unwavering team support enabled me to elevate my performance with each lap in both eventful races. I’m deeply grateful to all the fans and friends whose unwavering support throughout the weekend transformed the experience into something truly special. »
