KEO Racing hit the famous "Circuit de la Sarthe" for first time ever
The appointment is nothing more and nothing less than within the most anticipated week of the year of motorsport. "The legendary 24 hours of Le Mans".
For the team and drivers the long wait ended today and finally we went to our first free practice. And it has not been an easy day for Jocke Frid or Michael Markussen.
Both have had setbacks to adapt to the car and the circuit.
But, we have full confidence that the GAP is going to reduce tduring our next practice. FP2.
Our GAP with the leader is +12.274 seconds and we have only the second free practice at 8:30 am CET before going out to qualifying. we trust that the continuity in the team are undoubtedly one of our greatest strengths for this competition.
Frid and Markussen know each other well and have managed to create an excellent atmosphere within the team. And we are sure that both will give 100% in this important week.
Will be two races for this time with a duration of 1 hour each. one on Thursday 13th in the afternoon 17:30 PM CET. and the second one on Saturday 15th 11:30 AM CET. before the start of the 24 hours of Le Mans.
For both drivers is a new challenge. The legendary "Circuit de la Sarthe" is one of the most demanding tracks. with its little more than 13,600 kmts long and a total of 38 curves.
Our drivers will have to push hard to achieve a good starting position. the track record is in the hands of Toyota classe LMP1 in 3 min and 14.791 sec.
The Qualifying and Race will be broadcast live through the Youtube channel of Le Mans Cup. Follow us on our social networks to be informed.
