Russian race driver Roman Rusinov became the champion of the Le Mans Endurance series due to his victory at the last, fourth stage of the series - "1,000 km Spa" in Belgium. The JMB Racing team which the Russian race driver is a member of took second place in overall classification. As Mr. Rusinov himself told RIA Novosti, the last of the four races of the series brought many surprises. "We were rather unlucky with weather. My partner went into the boxes ahead of schedule after a Porsche damaged our back bumper. The mechanics worked hard because the bumper was bent so much that it frayed a wheel. A heavy rain began a couple of minutes after the car returned onto the course, and the car had to go to the pit-lane again to change the tyres," the race driver recalls. JMB Racing eventually finished fifth, having scored four more points, which enabled it to take second place in team classification, and made Roman Rusinov the champion of the Le Mans Endurance series. "My feelings are a bit mixed now," Mr. Rusinov said right after the race. "On the one hand, I am very happy because winning the title of champion is a striking event. It is especially pleasant that I finished ahead of three-time champion of the world and Le Mans winner Stephane Ortelli. On the other hand, I am a little disappointed because my team ceded only one point in the competition for victory in overall classification, though it did all possible to win."
