2016: Stéphane Lemeret, TCR Benelux Champion, on a Boutsen Ginion Honda !
2017: Benjamin Lessennes, TCR Benelux Champion ... on a Boutsen Ginion Honda !

Last round of the TCR Benelux this weekend in the Netherlands; the Belgian driver, Benjamin Lessennes and Tom Coronel, the Dutch driver shared the wheel of the Japanese car.

The team arrived in Assen with the firm intention to fight till the end for our driver to win the championship, but with the weight of "Success Ballast" and racing incidents, we had to wait till the last sprint at 17:30 to get the confirmation !

Indeed, during the 3rd sprint, and while there were still 50 points to distribute, Benjamin Lessennes was pushed in the gravel bed during the first lap of the race. However, he was able to be extracted and to finish his 2 sprint races.

A meeting full of stress and emotions and finally, the confirmation of his talent, since he won the championship at just 18 years of age!

 

Results :

  • Combined qualif : P3
  • Qualif race : P5
  • Sprint 1 : P3 – T Coronel
  • Sprint 2 : P3 – T Coronel
  • Sprint 3 : P6 – B Lessennes
  • Sprint 4 : P5 – B Lessennes

 

  • Championship TCR Benelux 2017 : P1 : B Lessennes !
  • Championship Junior : P1 : B Lessennes !
  • Car of the year : Honda !

Benjamin Lessennes: "Very emotional week-end with ups and downs but fortunately a successful outcome ! For my part, I made a good qualification. My sprints were a little harder because at the 4th corner in sprint 1, I was hit by an Audi which damaged the car. But the main thing is that we are champion .. I want to thank very much my Boutsen team  and Honda for all their support."

Olivier Lainé : "I am proud of the combativity that Benjamin has shown this season and more particularly this week-end. In two seasons, he has learned a lot and proved that he is one of the safest hopes of Belgian motorsports. We had the chance to welcome in our team, at the beginning of their career, boys like Jérôme d'Ambrosio, Maxime Martin or Maxime Soulet, they are professional drivers today. When I see what Benjamin has done on the last two years in TCR Benelux, I think he is really promising driver ! I also take the opportunity to thank all the team members and particularly Honda Benelux for the fantastic support since 2 years now "

Tom Coronel : “Well done guys, it is a mega result for ever !”

 

Oct 2017, TCR International, Zhejiang, China

Saturday 7/10/17 : P12 in the qualifying session for Aurelien Panis

Sept 2017, TCR Benelux, METTET, Round 5 : 2 wins and 1 podium !

A week end full of twists for our team for the 5th round of the TCR Benelux championship.First of all, the pole position for our 2 drivers, Stephane Lemeret and Benjamin Lessennes, each time fastest in their respective qualifying session,  and consequently the first place on the front row for the long race. But the long race will be very short for us, a breakdown of transmission annihilating all our efforts!  Our Honda Civic TCR nr. 2 will have to start at  the back of the grid for the sprint races 1 and 3 !

But the Sprint 1 offered Stephane Lemeret  a  P5 as result, and brought us back to the podium with a P3 in Sprint 2.

Sprint 3 with Benjamin Lessennes, unbridled, managed the feat to finish at the top of the podium. Started from the pole position for the Sprint 4, he doubled the wagered to gain the maximum points !
Benjamin Lessennes, no more leader during the  lunch time, left Mettet as  leader of the championship with 14 points ahead and as best Junior driver of the week-end.

Everything will be decided during the final meeting of Assen, 21-22 October 2017.

Results :

  • Qualif : P1
  • Qualif race : DNF
  • Sprint races 1 & 2 : P5 & P3
  • Sprint races 3 & 4 : P1 & P1

Stephane Lemeret: "This weekend in Mettet, the Honda Civic of the Boutsen Ginion Racing was above the level of the competitors in terms of performance. We found the ideal set-up  with our engineer Kevin Boutsen and the mechanics who did a great job. Unfortunately with a transmission broken at the start of the first race,  it was difficult for us but we were able to score important points for the championship, which was the goal of the meeting. "

Benjamin Lessennes: "A Sunday that started with a technical problem and therefore a big loss of points knowing that the championship is very tight. As conclusion we finalized the week end with two magnificent sprint races and two more victories in TCR Benelux.”

Sept 2017, TCR INTERNATIONAL, BURI RAM, Thailand : Race 2 : the win for Aurelien Panis !

A fantastic start of the race for the black and orange Honda as he was leading since the first corner.  Position that he kept all the way long to claim his first victory in TCR International ! Just awsome !

Aurélien Panis : “I knew before the races that our pace was really good, because in Free Practice and Qualifying was really fast but we didn’t get the perfect lap to be in front. P10 and so start Race 2 from pole position was the best possible qualifying result for us. I must say thank you to the team because the car was great to drive. I’m very happy to be in TCR International and to win today. For the young drivers it’s a really good series and it’s great to be fighting with the top drivers like Michelisz, Vernay or Comini”

Olivier Lainé : "Aurelien has concretized the potential we had already seen in TCR Benelux, (Zandvoort). His week-end has been amazing. We will continue to work in this direction.”
