GT3 / 15 August 2022
Poles and podiums for JAS-built cars across weekend
Lars Pedersen collected a pole position and podium triple for the NSX GT3 Evo 22 in Denmark while there was another pole for Civic Type R TCR squad ALM Motorsport in Estonia.
Special Saloon Car Denmark
Pedersen arrived at Ring Djursland following a double-win at the season-opener for Drivemade Racing aboard his JAS Motorsport-built NSX GT3 Evo 22 and made a strong start by topping practice and then setting pole position.
He fell from first to third in one mid-race moment, and was again third in Race Two, but he made amends by winning Race Two - a result that soon turned into a runner-up result following a time penalty for 'crowding a competitor'. He sits second in the title race.
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.
Baltic Endurance Championship
ALM Motorsport maintained their 100 per cent qualifying record in TCR in 2022 as Peeter Peek, Sven Karuse and Antti Rammo nabbed pole position by just over a tenth of a second at Parnu, Estonia.
Unfortunately they could not turn this into a first win of the season; a wheel-hub issue putting them out of the six-hour race at the quarter-distance mark.
