Barrier repairs curtail opening GT4 European Series practice at Spa

28 July 2022

The GT4 European Series will make a delayed start to the TotalEnergies 24 Hours of Spa weekend after the opening free practice session was effectively cancelled after just a few minutes to carry out a barrier repair.

A record 55 cars rolled out of the Spa pits to take part in the opening practice session of the weekend, but the session was halted after a lap when the #278 Race Team Gelleråsen by AFR Porsche 718 Cayman collided with the barriers at turn 15, damaging the Armco. Driver, Gustav Bard, was unharmed.

With the repairs to the barrier requiring considerable time, the session was not restarted and the field will instead return to the track for free practice two at 19:25CEST.
