How Bout a LeMans Victory For Good Measure...
So after a win in GT1 and an F1 win, what's next on the agenda?
How about a win in the LMP2 class of the International LeMans Series?
At the 1000 KM long Spa-Francorchamps this past weekend, that is exactly what we got.
In the final preparation race before the 24 Hours of LeMans, the Nissan powered vehicles of TDS Racing, Boutsen Energy Racing, Signatech Nissan and Greaves Motorsport all put forth solid efforts.
It was however the #46 of TDS Racing that would come away the winner. Finishing the race in 1st place for the LMP2 class and in 11th overall (only behind the LMP1 class vehicles) the Oreca chassis, Nissan powered effort came in some 44 seconds ahead of the #2 LMP2 finisher, the Boutsen Energy Racing #45 Nissan.
At only 1/4 the time on track of the 24 Hours of LeMans, Spa Francorchamps is a good warm up...but far from the main show coming up on 6/11-6/12 with at least three Nissan powered entries there.
