Tom Kimber-Smith scorched round under the Portuguese sunshine to take pole position in the Greaves Motorsport Zytek Z11SN – Nissan at the Estoril circuit, near Lisbon. Kimber-Smith’s lap time of 1:31.800 was not only top of the class but also earned a point in the championship, enough to guarantee both the Teams and Drivers titles for Greaves Motorsport.
British racing driver, Tom Kimber-Smith, clinched the 2011 Le Mans Series LMP2 Championship title in fine style at Estoril. Tom guided his Greaves Motorsport Zytek-Nissan to pole position and 2nd place in the race, but the single championship point awarded for pole was enough for him to put the crown out of reach for his main title-rivals. Tom’s superb effort in qualifying to claim the fastest LMP2 time and fourth fastest overall was all the more impressive given that he was driving with a painful hand injury.
