Craft-Bamboo LMP3 Ligier Takes Victory in Zhejiang


Craft-Bamboo Racing took victory in Sunday's main FRD LMP3 Series race, with the #95 of Mathias Beche and James Winslow running a perfect race from pole position to score a dominant win. The #20 of Alex Tagliani and Greg Taylor also put in a stellar performance, coming back from P9 to claim P4 by flag fall. Race one was a challenge for the team, with the #95 car being spun around while leading the race on the first lap, dropping them to last place and ruining their chances of victory. The #95 pairing fought back though and managed to finish in P8, behind the #20 of Tagliani and Taylor in P6. It was a strong start to the season for Craft-Bamboo, proving that both lineups will be challenging for podiums throughout the season. Thanks to their success this weekend, the #95 Ligier now leads the drivers' championship with 29 points, while the #20 Ligier sits in P5 with 17 points. The team looks ahead to round two in Shanghai later this month to continue their success with Disney_Pixar, the 'Cars' franchise, and the Lightning McQueen and Jackson Storm inspired Ligier JS P3s.

2017 Le Mans 24: Ford GT takes second in GTE Pro at the Le Mans 24 Hours in thrilling finish


The #67 Ford Chip Ganassi Racing Ford GT of Andy Priaulx (GB), Harry Tincknell (GB), and Pipo Derani (BRA) grabbed the runner-up spot in the 2017 Le Mans 24 Hours at the end of the final lap. Last minute struggles for the second-placed Corvette gave Tincknell the opportunity to pounce and take the place just as the chequered flag fell.

In a door-to-door battle of manufacturers through the full 24-hours, the #67 crew that won the FIA World Endurance Championship season-opener at Silverstone proved their mettle once again with strong strategy and an incredible effort from the entire team.

2017 Le Mans 24: Aston Martin Racing Claim 24 Hours Of Le Mans Victory


Aston Martin Racing has taken victory at the 85th 24 Hours of Le Mans in dramatic style, after Jonny Adam (GB) snatched the GTE Pro lead on the final lap of the iconic endurance race.

Partnered by Darren Turner (GB) and Daniel Serra (BR), the trio and their Aston Martin V8 Vantage GTE performed faultlessly to ensure they remained in the hunt for victory right until the death.

With just over 45 minutes left on the clock, Jonny Adam found himself pitting at the same time as the #63 Corvette for a final fuel stop. With both cars exiting the pit lane together – with Adam in second – it was inevitable that he would have to make the pass while on track.

2017 Le Mans 24: Risi Competizione Ferrari Team Knocked Out Of Competition At 24 Hours Of Le Mans Nearly Five Hours Into Race

2017 Le Mans 24: Risi Competizione Ferrari Team Knocked Out Of Competition At 24 Hours Of Le Mans Nearly Five Hours Into Race


The No. 82 Risi Competizione Ferrari 488 GTE-Pro was knocked out of competition at the 85th annual 24 Hours of Le Mans when the car was struck by an LMP2 class competitor on Lap 72, nearly five hours into the twice-around-the-clock endurance race.

The popular privateer Ferrari team, owned by Giuseppe Risi and from Houston, Texas (USA), is an underdog against the factory-backed manufacturers in the GTE-Pro class.

Having started from 11th in class and advanced to fifth place, the Risi team had nearly completed a full rotation of two stints per driver in the car when the pilot of the No. 28 LMP2 car turned into the side of Risi driver Pierre Kaffer, while attempting to pass him. The harsh move catapulted the red Ferrari 488 into the track barrier just past the first chicane on the legendary 8.469-mile/13.629-kilometer Circuit de la Sarthe. The caution was waved while Kaffer exited the car and the severely damaged Ferrari was towed off the circuit. Pierre was checked out at the track medical facility, deemed fine and released. The LMP2 car was given a 7-minute penalty for the contact.

Started driver Toni Vilander and second driver Giancarlo Fisichella had both driven excellent stints and the race was going to plan before the unfortunate incident removed any chance of celebrating a fourth victory at Le Mans in 2017 for the Risi Competizione Team.

2017 Le Mans 24: Larbre Competition Flies To Le Mans 24 Hours Pole Position


First pole in any category in La Sarthe for the French team since 2007
Larbre Competition stormed to its maiden GTE Am pole position at the Circuit de la Sarthe ahead of its 24th participation in the Le Mans 24 Hours on Saturday (17 June).

Brazilian Fernando Rees, who shares the #50 ‘Human’ Corvette C7.R with French drivers Christian Philippon and Romain Brandela, set a blistering lap time of 3:52.843 as night fell over the Circuit des 24 Heures, which was enough to put the Val de Vienne-based team on pole position ahead of the endurance classic.

2017 Le Mans 24: Vaillante REBELLION to start the 24H of Le Mans 4th and 5th


It was at midnight that the third and last qualifying session for the 85th running of the 24 Hours of Le Mans came to an end, solidifying the starting grid for Saturday’s race. Bruno Senna and Mathias Beche, respectively at the wheels #31 and #13, recorded the best qualifying times in this final session.

Team Manager, Bart Hayden:
" In qualifying we ended up with car number 31 in position 4 and car 13 in position 5 which is really good. We were aiming to get both cars into the top 6 so we are happy with these positions for the start of the race. I think it’s encouraging for everybody, especially because we have the two cars next to each other. We were trying to improve the lap time a bit more but the traffic and a few cars going off made it really difficult, but it was the same for everyone and to end up P4 and P5, I think we cannot be disappointed.
