Awesome performance but no prize for Tutumlu
29th May 2012
Tutumlu was one to watch during the weekend's Porsche Supercup race in Monaco. Unfortunately after overtaking no less than ten cars a rival hit him damaging his car.
The FÖRCH Racing by Lukas Motorsport´s driver exhibited an incredible performance for the large crowd attending this event in Monaco. Starting on 12th row of starting grid due to troublesome qualifying, red-flagged for a while, Tutumlu played a key role at the early stages of the race.
“On lap one, I have overtaken no less than five cars. I kept pushing and overtook several others entering into top-ten, in spite of this weekend thirty cars were racing here. My performance was pretty good, I was told by others that it was almost historical because Monaco isn´t a track for overtaking maneuvers”, Tutumlu explained at the end. However this performance was stopped by another rival, “he hit me and damaged my Porsche. Fortunately I kept my position because safety car came in. But when the race was launched once again, I tried to approach a bend in the same way as previously, but my damaged car wasn´t able. After losing control, I hit the wall”.
Tutumlu, even then, was determined to complete the race, finishing 15th. “After cancellation of race in Barcelona, my aim was to finish here. It was a shame because in my opinion I made today one of my best races during my entire motorsport career, running ahead of very experienced drivers. A good result wasn´t possible but my race was very good until that collision. I was told that my overtaking movement going sideways was the best one during today´s race”, Tutumlu added. Next meeting in the Porsche Supercup will be in Valencia, “for sure another long-awaited for me and I am aiming for improving my results
