The GT3 R’s cus­tomer as­sault on var­i­ous cham­pi­onships around the world got off to a trou­bled start for 2018 at round one of the Blanc­pain GT Se­ries En­durance Cup at Monza. Man­they-racing, with fac­tory sup­port from the three works driv­ers Ro­main Du­mas, Frédéric Mack­owiecki and Dirk Werner, crossed the fin­ish line in Italy down in 45th po­si­tion af­ter a host of prob­lems, chief of which was a faulty gear­box sen­sor which cost the team a to­tal of 23 laps for repairs dur­ing the three-hour race. The Blanc­pain GT Se­ries En­durance Cup is re­served for race cars that com­ply with FIA GT3 reg­u­la­tions. Round two of the Blanc­pain GT Se­ries En­durance Cup will take place on 20 May at Sil­ver­stone, Great Bri­tain.
