The BMW M235i Cup Belgium is a new series, supported by BMW Motorsport. Stéphane was approached by Maciej Drezser to enter with him in this championship.
The first race, as said, took place at Spa this weekend and was immediately a succes for the team. Stéphane and Maciej finished 2nd in their class, and 5th overall out of 80 cars.
The first day of testing went quite well.
At Friday and Saturday, the weather was very bad and therefore they were not able to work on a ‘dry’ set-up.
Sunday was raceday. As it rained overnight, the track was still wet on Sunday morning, but of course it became dryer every time. Stéphane and her mechanic chose for slick-tires in qualifying. In the end, this was not the right decision. She had to start the first race from P17..
The start of the first race was a chaos and she got involved in a start crash. However, she was very competitive posting fastest lap of the race and drove from 17th to 9th with some great overtaking manouvers.
