2021 Le Mans 1000km Race - Pedro Harsk is the winner.

  • Thread starter Harsk100

Hi Everyone! Welcome to the 4th edition of Le Mans 1000km Race.
The idea of hosting a Endurance Race was when I have competed into several endurance races and I always wanted to host a endurance race.

The first edition was held in 13th May 2017, featuring Group C and GT1 machinery and the winner of first edition was Frederick Byloos on his Nissan R92CP. In 2018, the 2nd edition of Le Mans 1000km Race was part of MHRA Schedule and it was the first time that the race had LMP1 and GT3 Cars running around the track. The Winner of 2nd Edition was Alexander Erhart.

Le Mans 1000km has returned in 2020 after one sabbatical year and 2021 will see its 4th edition of Le Mans 1000km.

We're looking forward to see you on the track for the race! :cheers:

Qualifying Practice Day 1 is done. Unfortunately, @Harsk100 was the only driver to do the Qualifying, since no one else has joined the event.

The Organisation is looking forward to see you tommorrow for Qualifying Practice Day 2! :cheers:

Here are the Qualifying Practices 3 and 4 results, which have determined the Grid for tommorrow's Le Mans 1000km.

Hello everyone.

Unfortunately, the race didn't end like I was expecting. Qualifying has been cancelled due to lack of drivers. Unlike it was planned, the race has started on Pace Lap with Pedro Harsk and Nanu, both on LMP1 Class. For very first time in 3 years, there were no GT3 entries on the race.

Nanu, on his Porsche 919 Hybrid, has retired on Lap 1. So, like the 2018 edition, the Organisation had no choice but to give a Red Flag due to lack of drivers. The race was finished after only 1 lap has been completed and Pedro Harsk was declared the winner.

Hopefully that the next edition of 2022 will be having more drivers competing on Le Mans.

Thank you everyone and see you for 2022 edition! :cheers:
