Moller and Paverud on GT Open podium with NSX GT3 Evo
Reno Racing duo Jens Moller and Marcus Paverud continued their quest for the International GT Open pro-am title with a first podium finish of the year at Spa-Francorchamps.
The Danish team, who began their season last month at Paul Ricard, overcame a challenging set of circumstances at the iconic Belgian venue to score the best finish of the year with the JAS Motorsport-built NSX GT3 Evo.
They settled on a strategy of starting the opening race with pro driver Paverud, who would hand driving duties on to Moller - the am in the pairing - later on.
Paverud qualified a superb third in class, but was denied the chance to turn that pace into something meaningful when all but two laps of his nearly 40-minute stint was spent behind the safety car owing to two early incidents.
Moller ran strongly himself after taking over for the final half-hour, taking fourth in class.
Things go even better on Sunday; Moller qualifying third in class and he and Paverud then keeping their noses clean to finish on the podium.
The car was competing as part of the NSX GT3 Customer Racing Programme; a global collaborative project with JAS Motorsport responsible for assembly of all cars.
Honda Performance Development (HPD) and M-TEC handle sales and technical support in North America and Japan respectively, with JAS responsible for these areas across the rest of the world.
