Successful GT3 Debut in the Final Round of the GT Open at Barcelona
JAS Development Driver Reece Barr and co-driver Jens Moller were in imperious form as the NSX GT3 Evo made its first appearance in the series for over two years at Barcelona, Spain for the Final round of the GT Open.
Moller qualified fifth in class and he and Barr had the Reno machine sixth in the division when the appearance of the safety car bunched the pack together.
A stunning charge by Barr in the final 16 minutes brought the pair from 11th to fifth overall, which gave them third in pro-am.
A stunning class pole position from Barr on Sunday morning put the Reno car on the overall front row for race 2 of the weekend, with a tricky first rolling start for the Irish man it was a consistent charge to the end of his stint and slick work by the Danish squad ensured that Moller left the pitlane leading the division after the mandatory driver switches.
A solid drive from the 2019 Blancpain Sports Club champion ensured another third-place finish to wind up a sensational debut in the series by the team.
Reece Barr said: "It was a solid start to the campaign this weekend our main goal was to learn what our weaknesses where so that we had something to focus on throughout the off season. And to come away with two class podiums was a bonus and glad the that the hard work by everyone in the team was paying off. With things to improve for next year I'm looking forward to working on these now and excited to see what we can do next year".
