The problems continue at Alpine, from the show in LM P2


Trouble followed for Alpine at the 24 Hours of Le Mans. After a hydraulic clutch control problem shortly before the fourth hour of the race, the prototype in French colors had to return to its garage a second time within an hour. André Negrao finally emerged, 36th overall. With seven laps behind, Alpine can no longer hope for anything. Far ahead, the Toyota n°8 driven by Ryo Hirakawa still dominates the proceedings in front of the sister car.

The spectacle on the track is offered to us by the LM P2s. The WRT team, which lost big from the start with a minute of stop and go for the n°31 and damage to the n°41 during the triple collision with the United Autosports n°22, almost lost everything in an attempted move by Sean Gelael on Rolf Ineichen’s n°32. This benefited Pietro Fittipaldi (#43 Inter Europole), who slipped past both cars in a four-way battle with the #23 United Autosports of Oliver Jarvis. The No. 38 Jota leads this category ahead of Team Penske.

In LMGTE Pro, Corvette continues to dominate with the #63. Nicky Catsburg is thus in the lead ahead of the sister car, the n°64 of Alexander Sims, who has just got rid of Laurens Vanthoor (Porsche n°92).

Porsche still has the upper hand in LMGTE Am with the #79 WeatherTech Racing driven by Cooper MacNeil. The Aston Martins of Northwest AMR and TF Sport complete the podium for this fifth hour.
