Tuomo Jussila
Marko Nurmela (guest driver)
Tuan Tran (guest driver)

We have 5 strong drivers in the team, 3 from DSR and 2 guest drivers who are friends of some of our members. Mercedes AMG GT3 2020 as our car, which was chosen by its strong straight line speed and being overall fastest car of GT3.

Tuomo took the qualifying with strong position 6 of 12 car GT3 field. After green flag drop and countdown from 24 hours to 0:00:00 started, Tuomo started driving opening stints. He managed to car safely to the pits after 2 hours of drive, passing the car to Ian. There were some lucky moments, being almost crashed out by inches.

After several hours, the race was peaceful and each car classes respected traffic. So we had no major problems bringing the car P1 to the final laps, mostly by outspeeding our rivals by strong team and pitstop strategy. Thanks to Marko (guest driver) for being able pull out 32 lap stints, while the rest of team could do 30 or 31 laps, meaning we got to shave one pitstop!
Marko also made an excellent car setup for the race! We would like to thank our another guest driver, Tuan Tran - for being able to help ease our workload in the race and showing excellent pace on his stints!

We finished the race in position 1 after 810 laps and scored 255 championship points, which is 78th overall of total 4055 teams and 18 575 (!) drivers participated in the event!

DSR will return in February 24th 2024 - 12 hours of Mt.Panorama Bathurst, Australia!
