On the cusp of the team’s first WEC podium, they were pipped to the line by the #98 Aston Martin but claimed a thoroughly-deserved P3 result

ANDREW'S RACE REVIEW
“It’s been one of the best days of my career! Heading into the weekend, I felt that it had the makings of a really great few days and I’m so happy with what we’ve achieved here. To stand on the podium in only the team’s third race in the World Endurance Championship is amazing. Hats off to all of the team for their incredible effort and hard work, it’s great to be able to share this moment with them. Looking ahead, I’m really confident we can add to this result in the races ahead.”
