After over 150 races in four years, the CRS Racing team is in China this week to compete in the 6 Hours of Zhuhai. The team announced recently that it was ceasing its race operations to concentrate on building the new McLaren MP4-12C GT3 car so Zhuhai will be CRS’s swansong.

The driving crew of Pierre Ehret, Roger Wills and Tim Mullen will be doing all they can to make sure that CRS goes out with a bang…hopefully of Champagne corks!

“It seems incredible that we are coming up to the seventh and last race of the ILMC season but I'm very much looking forward to my first race in China,” said Roger. “We have come so close to some great results this season with only one podium at Silverstone, so it would be nice to end the season on a high with a podium. It would also be a great last race for CRS who are moving to focus on building the McLaren MP4-12C. Obviously it is not a circuit I know but I’ve been on the simulator so hopefully that will help and it will be very fresh in my mind. Let’s hope we can end the season with a strong result.”

Tim Mullen agreed with Roger’s comments, adding: “It’s always good to go to a track that you don’t get to race on very often. It helps to mix things up a bit. Having been with CRS from Day One I would love to help them go out on a high.”

The lasting legacy of a fallen Indy car rookie

Jeff Krosnoff was plucked out of obscurity to become a respected and highly popular professional in Japan, and then got his big break in CART Indy car for 1996.

How overlooked Mazda produced one of Le Mans' greatest shocks

The screaming rotary-engined Mazda 787 is regarded as one of the most popular Le Mans 24 Hours-winning cars, but until its surprise success on this day 30 years ago it was never regarded as a likely victor. But that reckoned without a new technical partner, some canny political manoeuvring and a rival's bizarre self-inflicted weakness.

How an ingenious fix prevented Paul Newman from winning Le Mans

It's one of the great what-if stories in Le Mans history. Paul Newman finished second in the 24 Hours in 1979, but it could easily have been a famous victory were it not for the resourcefulness of the late Manfred Kremer.
