6hr Nürburgring LMP2: How close was that… 0.071!

On the back of their win at Le Mans the LMP2 class was won by the #36 Signatech Alpine of Nicolas Lapierre, Stephane Richelmi and Gustavo Menezes. The #36 took over the lead going into the fourth hour when the #26 G-Drive of Alex Brundle, Rene Rast and Romain Rusinov retired with a gearbox failure. Taking second some 16.478 behind was the RGR Sport Ligier of Bruno Senna, Filipe Albuquerque and Ricardo Gonzalez.

Ryan Dalziel and Jonny Kane gave the crowd a last lap battle with the #31 Tequila Patron ESM Ligier pipping Jonny’s Strakka Racing Gibson to the line by a mere 0.071 seconds in the closest podium battle of the 6 hours.

The WEC season now moves outside of Europe for the first time in 2016 for the fifth round of the season, the inaugural 6 Hours of Mexico at the Autodromo Hermanos Rodriguez in Mexico City on 3 September.
