International GT Open

Reema Juffali and Adam Christodoulou navigated Theeba Motorsport to a sixth class podium and second in the Pro-Am Championship at the International GT Open’s 2022 finale in Spain.

After the team returned to the top three in Race One, Adam fronted qualifying for the final race of the season and secured a competitive seventh on the grid with a 1:44.385 lap time.

He started the 60-minute race but slipped to eighth on the opening lap following an early duel with the #63 Oregon Team Lamborghini of Benjamin Hites. 

The Briton was locked in battle with the #3 Aust Motorsport Audi of Max Hofer throughout his stint and after losing position in the sixth minute, repassed the Austrian during the Safety Car restart, caused by a spin for Alex Villanueva.

Rising to fourth after the pit window opened, Adam boxed to hand over to team-mate,Reema, 24 minutes from the finish, with the team rejoining seventh overall and third in-class after jumping the #777 Olimp Racing Audi in the pit lane.

Reema maintained her class position in a clinical run to the chequered flag to seal the runner-up position in the Pro-Am Championship in only Theeba Motorsport’s first season of competition.

In Their Words

Reema Juffali, Founder & Driver, Theeba Motorsport
“What a race!It feels like yesterday since we started this journey, and I can’t quite believe that Theeba Motorsport’s first season is complete. Adam [Christodoulou] did a great job in qualifying and drove an awesome first stint to put us in contention for the podium. With a quick stop, we managed to jump into the top three and from there, we just had to bring it home. Given the different challenges we’ve faced this season, finishing as the runners-up in the Pro-Am Championship is a fantastic achievement, and it just shows the value of the hard work that goes on behind the scenes before and after each race. I’m extremely proud of everyone.”

“Coming into today, we had one goal and that was to take home second in the championship. It feels great to achieve that, and I’m very happy to finish the season with another podium. The car was quick in qualifying, and we were in a good position after our pitstop in the race. Reema did a great job during her stint to bring home third in class. What a season!”
