The 24 Hours of Le Mans is finally here! This year’s race features not one but two drivers competing thanks to the Gran Turismo video game series.
Lucas Ordonez, winner of the first GT Academy in 2008, is racing in his second 24 Hours of Le Mans with the Greaves Motorsport team alongside Martin Brundle (who won Le Mans in 1990 in the “Silk Cut” Jaguar XJR-12) and his son, Alex. The team qualified 11th in their LMP2 class.
“I feel more confident and generally more ready for this than last year,” said Lucas. “It was stressful last time but I have a great feeling about this race. We have a car that is easy to drive in race trim and we are all ready for what lies ahead of us. We are a good team and I think we did the sensible thing today and got ourselves prepared for the race, rather than going for pole. We may not be on pole position but we are in a great position for the Le Mans 24 Hours.”
Jordan Tresson, winner of GT Academy in 2010, is making his Le Mans debut with Signatech Racing, who qualifying qualified 13th in LMP2. “We had a few issues that delayed our program but we have finished the day with a good race car and we are happy with our strategy. I’m not feeling nervous about the race as I don’t put pressure on myself like that. I’m excited to be taking part in my first Le Mans 24 Hours and maybe 13 will be our lucky number!”
