Naturally I’m pretty disappointed, but man do I love racing at Le Mans.
The fight and intensity of every moment, the focus, it’s all unreal. Big thanks to team Rudi Penders and his whole AAI/Prospeed team who delivered a car that made it all the way with as we crossed the line in 9th place in GTE-Am.
The car in morning warmup was the best it had been the entire time we’d been running.
Unfortunately some changes were made to the setup before the race, once again giving me a really loose and difficult car to drive, especially when the race started under caution and in the rain.
I was pretty proud that we were able to go from 12th to 5th. I handed it over to Oliver Bryant who did a good job keeping it honest and just doing laps. That is how you win. No mistakes, which was hard to do the way the car was set-up at that time.
After Mark Patterson’s off, the guys put the car back to where it was for warmup and we could run some laps where we needed to be time wise.
As the race progressed, there were a couple of more offs during the event that really took us out of contention. Like I said you need to be perfect at Le Mans even if the car isn’t.
