Murray Biffed out at Spa
2004-10-12 - By Philip Byrne

Murray Biffed out at Spa Lady luck did not smile on the Dunlop Motorsport Ireland Young Driver of the Year Eoin Murray racing for team PRS Group as part of the support package for the now legendary Spa 24 Hour race.

Despite getting to grips with the track early on Eoin only managed to qualify in eight place for Saturday morning’s curtain raiser. A suspect new engine thought to be the reason.

From the start he was determined to wring the best from the car and got himself up to sixth by the fifth lap, however a coming together between Italian driver Maurizio Campani & Spanish driver Luis Villamil saw Campani spear across the track and connect with the rear quarter panel of Eoin’s car and send him out of the race with a damaged rear suspension.

On further examination, after the race, his engine was found to have a problem.

Murray, who races with backing from, Alfa Romeo Ireland, Holfeld F1 Components, &
GaryAron Homes was philosophical afterwards, ‘’this was just a racing incident, I saw Villamil & Campani tangle and I was moving into fourth position when Campani careered into the back of me. The team are now working to replace the engine and I am hopeful of a better car for Imola for the final two round of the season.’’

The Spa 24 Hour weekend is one of the biggest on the LG Super Racing Weekend
Calendar with crowds in excess of 120,000 people over the weekend.
