CRS hopes for Chinese cracker

November 8, 2011

After more than 150 races in four years, the CRS Racing team is in China this week to compete in the Six Hours of Zhuhai.

The team recently announced it was ceasing its race operations to concentrate on building the new McLaren MP4-12C GT3 car so Zhuhai will be CRS's swansong.

The driving crew of Pierre Ehret, Roger Wills and Tim Mullen will be doing all they can to make sure that CRS goes out with a bang - of champagne corks, hopefully.

"It seems incredible that we are coming up to the seventh and last race of the ILMC season, but I'm very much looking forward to my first race in China," said Wills. "We have come so close to some great results this season with only one podium at Silverstone (UK), so it would be nice to end the season on a high with a podium. It would also be a great last race for CRS who are moving to focus on building the McLaren MP4-12C. Obviously it is not a circuit I know but I've been on the simulator so hopefully that will help and it will be very fresh in my mind. Let's hope we can end the season with a strong result."

Mullen agreed, adding: "It's always good to go to a track that you don't get to race on very often. It helps to mix things up a bit. Having been with CRS from day one I would love to help them go out on a high."
