International racing makes post-COVID European return at Portuguese GP hopeful

Creventic loyalist Herberth Motorsport took a 1-2 finish with its pair of Porsche 911 GT3-R contenders, although it was the less-fancied car that stepped up to take honours after the machine of twin brothers Robert and Alfred Renauer, Ralf Bohn and Daniel Allemann lost over an hour to a gearbox change on Saturday evening. That meant that Tim Muller was able to cross the line in the slower - but untroubled - Herberth Porsche, shared with Marco Seefried, Jurgen Haring, Michael Joos and Taki Konstantinou, to take victory over the sister car by 26 laps. The opening stint featured a massive all-Dutch dust-up lasting over an hour between Tom Coronel in the Comtoyou Racing Audi RS3 and Rik Breukers in the Red Camel-Jordans Cupra, with former British Formula Ford champion Antti Buri closing onto their tails in the lead Autorama by Wolf Power Volkswagen Golf.
