A close second place, but winning behind Flex is nothing to be ashamed about. Thanks for support! thank you

2nd is a great result, Thanks Oxia for the support.

Best race we have done so far. We had good pace, we didnt make any mistakes and everything went to plan.

It was really tough driving in traffic as it always is with 40 cars. Several times I had to go offline (off the racing line not log out!) to avoid spinning cars including through the kettel bells [fast kink]. The penalties for mistakes were severe, never before have I seen such killer sand! more like snow, you slide over it and then get stuck in it. We may be the only team that didnt get stuck. It was a race that showed that courtesy and caution pay off, those p1s who were inconsiderate and impatient didnt fare very well.

Well done Marcel for a great performance under pressure at the start and coping with the change to night admirably.
The biggest thanks to Art who drove the last stints with the immense pressure of our first podium and at night with the indominable Flex closing him down, it would have been so easy to crash, thats what Kevin Tosci did from second position so thank you.

I agree, Artur had a lot of pressure to carry. He shouldn't worry about a thing. I do understand that he was nervous and I would have been too. I'm not sure if I would have handled the situation as well as Artur did.

But you forgot to mention yourself Richard. Although you felt uncertain, even anxious before the race, I was sure that putting confidence in you is not something I would regret. Your driving was very well, fast and safe. Once again you have proven yourself to be reliable.

How many stints have you completed, 2, 3 or 4? I can't remember.

2 stints (around 2 hrs 15 mins) it would be nice to do more I told Art I would be ready to take over if he crashed. It made sense to minimise driver swaps and usually our second hr we had better rhythm.

When we are doing well there is a lot more pressure. Even though i was sitting down in a comfortable chair my heart was beating out of my chest during the restart and for about 3 laps. I lost concentration quite dramatically on the last lap when talking and adjusting settings, same thing happened at Le mans.

Congratulations on the 2nd and WCC's first podium. Sorry to have missed it but I was away from all electronic contact. Sounds like you all were involved in a hair raiser.

Thanks for keeping fingers crossed for us thank you

the result was amazing, although I personally feel that I was the weakest link in the team, because in my day ride we lost time the most, and at night I was not able to defend themselves against Flex
But fortunately we have Marcel and Richard, who supported me in my weakness,
for me they are winners, mentally, because the official result is different.

If not restart the server and the loss of one lap (by decision of the organizers), even we were on the same lap as the leaders of the GT2 class, then maybe we have it easier to keep running in front of Flex & co.

Tactics and the setup was perfect. One pitstop less than the winner and P3.
I'm confident, that we went to eight pits, if not my forced swap with Richard,
Well, apparently fell on me, that I have cut my motivation and focus.

Thanks again to Marcel and Richard. It was an honor to achieve this result with you.
Now I'm waiting for 24 hours race.
