Matt Griffin and Duncan Cameron will probably be the most relaxed drivers at the upcoming iRacing.com GT 500 race at the Nürburgring. Through their excellent performance in the Belgian Ardennes at the end of July – together with Davide Rigon and Francisco Guedes the Irish-British pairing finished second in the Pro-Am Cup in the Total 24 Hours of Spa – the drivers of the #51 AF Corse Ferrari are the only frontrunners of the Blancpain Endurance Series that already have a 2015 title in their pockets. We spoke with Matt.
“In my opinion the Blancpain Endurance Series is by far the best GT Championship in the world, so to win the championship is fantastic and to win it with a round in hand is even better”, says Griffin. “Duncan and I have had a fantastic run in the Blancpain Endurance Series, finishing second at Monza, fourth at Silverstone, third at Paul Ricard and second at the Total 24 Hours of Spa. In fact, Silverstone was the only race in which we didn't finish in the top-10 overall. I have to say a big thank you to Ferrari and AF Corse, as our strategy, reliability and speed has been fantastic. At the end of the day it's a Pro-Am championship, and Duncan this year has driven amazingly, so he definitely deserves this championship. I am very much looking forward to a relaxing race at the Nürburgring, but as always I am a racer, so the aim is to win."
