Complete Marine Freight and Marc Cars Australia are celebrating a win after coming first in their SP2 class and seventh overall at the 24 Hour Series in Barcelona at the weekend.
After a gruelling 24 hours of racing, the Aussies came out on top in the CMF branded Marc Focus silhouette car despite facing stiff competition from other vehicles.
Complete Marine Freight organised all the logistics for the 3 Marc Cars from Australia for the series that has visited Zandvoort, Zolder and Barcelona – the next race will be Dubai in early 2015.
Gerald Price, Complete Marine Freight, Managing Director comments:
“Our first experience of 24 hour endurance racing and a class win – we could not be happier. Thanks go to the Marc team for producing a car that ran without fault with the least number of pit stops of any team, only a week after competing in Zolder – their work and dedication mirrors how we try to run our business.
Special thanks to James Kaye – a Touring car Champion and the lead driver for giving us the opportunity to participate and we look forward to further success in the future together.
A very happy if tiring weekend! ”
