KRAIHAMER RELEGATED TO SPECTATOR IN BRANDS HATCH
Laura Kraihamer was forced to sit out both races at Brands Hatch after a practice crash by co-driver Dominik Olbert.
The fresh winner of the ADAC GT4 opener at Oschersleben went into the British round of the European GT4 Championship with the aim of maximising her experience of both track and car and helping the relatively new KTM customer team "razoon".
Unfortunately, her race weekend was over before it started, as a heavy crash in the second free practice session by co-driver and team owner Domink Olbert ruled off the pair from both races after the #99 KTM X-Bow GT4 sustained too much damage to be repaired trackside.
Olbert flew off at Druids in the closing stages of the session, as the rain had started to fall.
Both Olbert and Kraihamer then had no alternative but to watch the races as spectators.
The first race was won by other KTM team "True Racing", lining up former GP3 driver Patric Niederhauser and Kraihamer's ADAC GT4 partner Reinhard Kofler.
