The Risi Competizione team with Keating Motorsports is proud to add another podium result to its Le Mans history in the 86th running of the 24 Hours of Le Mans, June 16-17. Today the popular American privateer Ferrari team finished third in the GTE-Am class, collecting its seventh podium, including three victories, at the Circuit de la Sarthe's legendary endurance classic race over the years.

Risi Competizione prepared the Ferrari 488 GTE for fellow Texas automotive dealer and IMSA racer Ben Keating, along with his teammates, IMSA regular Dutchman Jeroen Bleekemolen and German Le Mans rookie Luca Stolz.

This year was Risi Competizione's ninth year to compete at Le Mans, with a total of 13 previous entries. All entries have been Ferrari's and including victories in their inaugural season in 1998 with the Ferrari 333SP, in 2008 and 2009 in the F430 GTC/GT2. In 2007 and 2009 their Krohn Racing customer finished second and third, respectively, in the Ferrari 430 GT/GT2. In 2016, Risi Competizione returned to the podium (in second place) with a Ferrari 488 GTE-Pro in a fierce battle with the Ford GTs.

(Le Mans, France, June 17, 2018)...More steady driving and uneventful stints was the name of the game for the No. 85 Keating Motorsports/Risi Competizione Ferrari GTE-Am team at the 86th running of the 24 Hours of Le Mans.

As night turned back into day, the Ferrari team maintained their second in class position throughout the next six hours. Jeroen Bleekemolen had taken over the driving duties from Luca Stolz just before the 12-hour mark in the twice-around-the-clock endurance race. Other than a couple of cautions to clear track conditions caused by other competitors, Bleekemolen just drove clean and kept the second position as he triple stinted.

2018 Le Mans 24: Toyota Gazoo Racing - 12 Hour Report


TOYOTA GAZOO Racing held the lead of the 86th Le Mans 24 Hours at half distance as the second round of the FIA World Endurance Championship (WEC) headed into the night.

Mike Conway, Kamui Kobayashi and José María López in the #7 TS050 HYBRID held the advantage after completing 196 laps. The #8 TS050 HYBRID of Sébastien Buemi, Kazuki Nakajima and Fernando Alonso was running second, 1min 15.326 behind, having lost ground due to a stop-go penalty.

The opening six hours had seen both TS050 HYBRIDs firmly establish themselves in the lead, with both cars closely matched. At one quarter distance the #8 car, which started the race from pole position, led by just a few seconds.

But early in his first stint Kamui in the #7 closed to the rear of Kazuki and got past on lap 102 just before making a fuel stop. When the #8 did likewise, pole position winner Kazuki rejoined the track less than two seconds behind the leader as the pair fought an exciting battle at the front.

2018 Le Mans 24: Corvette Racing Halfway Report


Garcia/Magnussen/Rockenfeller fighting in top-five; No. 64 Corvette still going strong

LE MANS, France – Corvette Racing’s No. 63 entry remained among the lead six cars in a hotly contested GTE Pro category as the 24 Hours of Le Mans entered its second half.

Antonio Garcia had just gotten back in the No. 63 Mobil 1/SiriusXM Chevrolet Corvette C7.R prior to the 12-hour mark as the team’s highest-running entry continued to press its attack on the Circuit de la Sarthe and the rest of the 17-car GTE Pro field.

2018 Le Mans 24: Toyota Gazoo Racing Six Hour Report - Fernando Alonso Leads


TOYOTA GAZOO Racing led the 86th Le Mans 24 Hours after six hours of the second round of the FIA World Endurance Championship.

The #8 TS050 HYBRID of Sébastien Buemi, Kazuki Nakajima and Fernando Alonso held a modest advantage over Mike Conway, Kamui Kobayashi and José María López in the #7 car at the quarter-distance mark, with 94 laps completed.

Sébastien started the race from pole position and held that advantage into turn one, despite contact from behind from the #1 Rebellion, but it was Mike in the #7 who led the opening lap, staying there for four laps before the positions swapped once more.

Very light rain on parts of the track during the opening hour had little impact but that first-corner contact for the #8 required a precautionary change of rear end at Sébastien's second stop.

Corvette Racing at Le Mans: Dress Rehearsal Up First with Annual Test Day


Corvette Racing has made its annual venture across the Atlantic to Le Mans, France – for the 19th consecutive year – ahead of this year’s running of the 24 Hours of Le Mans. First up: Sunday’s Test Day at the 8.47-mile Circuit de la Sarthe for eight hours of track time ahead of the French endurance classic.

It is the only time that Corvette Racing – and the other 59 teams entered for Le Mans – will get on the track ahead of raceweek from June 13-17. It may seem like plenty of time to run through a test program, but eight hours goes by quickly on such a long track, not to mention cycling through each of the drivers during the day.
