24HR ENDURANCE RACE AT SPA FRANCORCHAMPS
Leon, who also races in the Dunlop Mini SE7EN championship, will be taking on the challenge in a Citroen C1, which has been prepared by Neil Garner Racing. The regulations permit only minimal modifications to each car, which guarantees close racing.
The event typically attracts some high-profile racing drivers, and this year is no different, with current British Touring Car and British GT champions taking part.
Racing alongside Leon in a team of four is ex-F1 mechanic Neil Garner, Ferrari 550 racer, Pete Fisk, and Luis Gonzalez, the current Spanish go-kart champion. Commenting on the event, Leon said: “When the opportunity to race at Spa presented itself, I jumped at it. The circuit is right up there as one of the most iconic in motorsport. While an almost standard Citroen C1 may not pack the biggest punch, the challenge of maintaining momentum, dicing with 100 other cars, and racing for a full twenty-four hours is hugely motivating.
