Larbre Competition 20-hour update

Larbre Competition 2enjoy quiet night and strong morning at Le MansLarbre Competition came through the night without incident to maintain 10th position in the LMP2 class with one-sixth of this year’s Le Mans 24 Hours remaining. Driver trio Keiko Ihara, Pierre Ragues and Ricky Taylor have kept their noses clean thus far, while the #50 Morgan-Judd has run reliably despite suffering from a puncture that cost precious time on Saturday evening. Ragues replaced Ihara in the early hours after the Japanese female racer produced another strong and consistent performance. The 2013 European Le Mans Series champion subsequently completed a similarly trouble-free triple stint of his own before Taylor took over from 09:00 to 10:30.The Tudor United SportsCar Championship points leader maintained the good work over his two stints before Ihara climbed aboard once again.Ragues will return to the cockpit for a triple stint at around midday, with Taylor scheduled to take the car through to the finish at 15:00 this afternoon. Pierre Ragues: “I just completed a trouble-free triple stint. However, my legs started feeling sore as fatigue crept in. But what really matters is that the car is running strongly and the tyres can go the distance. Now it’s time to take a break though!”Ricky Taylor: “I only managed a double stint because of some pain in my lower back. The circuit is getting faster and the car is well balanced. It was very good. Everyone at Larbre Competition has done a fantastic job. We have to keep pushing and will see where we are over the final two stints, which I’ll be driving.”
