FORT WALTON BEACH, Fla., Sept. 26, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Step One Automotive Group ambassador and athlete, Juan Manual "JM" Correa took home a podium at Circuit de Spa-Francorchamps in his European Le Mans Series debut. The Prema Racing driver finished third in the four-hour race in his car shared with Ferdinand Habsburg and Louis Delétraz.
"I'm extremely happy with my first endurance race," said Juan Manual "JM" Correa. "I learned a lot this weekend, and while it was a learning experience, I really enjoyed it. Massive thanks to the team, especially to Ferdi and Louis, who helped me a lot. Now I'm just looking forward to Portimão, where hopefully we can take the championship."
