Man Pushes Mustang Across Finish Line at Spa 24 Hours
Determination is a quality that all professional competitors know something about. When it comes to endurance racing though, determination takes on a new meaning. Jose Close, the driver of the Team VDS Adventures Mustang, showed that he knows a thing or two about determination at the 24HRS of Spa last weekend.
Team VDS Racing was having troubles with steering for the most of the race, which put them in the pits for three hours. They were able to get it out on the track again later, but It stopped just before the finish.
Not to be beaten by a measly mechanical failure, he finished the race himself. By pushing his car across the line.
Yeah, they were in 28th place, but this is an endurance race. Half the difficulty is just in finishing. The fact the he pushed his car across the line himself is a testament to his racing spirit. If you're looking for a guy with heart, you've found him.
