Jack Manchester was, once again, joined by his teammates Nico Bastian and Jules Szymkowiak as they took on Paul Ricard for the third round of the Blancpain GT Series Endurance Championship. They scored some good points for the championship, managing to claim 6th in class at the chequered flag after a technical issue put them on the back foot for qualifying.
The weekend started strong, with the Team Thunderhead trio ending the practice session fastest in class. When it came to qualifying, a brake problem prevented the team from getting the full potential out of the car, leading to a difficult session. With the combination of their issue and traffic on the 5.842 km circuit, the #90 could get no higher than 36th overall, P8 in class.
Jack took the green flag for his first six-hour race and had fantastic progress off the line. He had a great start, making up places in the field as the cars began to loop round the twisting tarmac. Unfortunately his great start was brought to a premature end when he was hit by a spinning Ferrari. Jack tried to avoid the incident, but the out of control Ferrari travelled across the track and collected the Team Thunderhead car.
