Altus finish 2nd in Le Mans 24 Hour race!
A fantastic drive from Andrew Kahl who drove more than half the race in the Logitech G Ferrari GTE, completing a mammoth 191 laps. Joining him was teammates in Marin Čolak and Alexander Lauritzen to take second place in the 24 Heures du Mans, backing up our 3rd place finish from last year. For Alexander, it was his debut in the team and what a debut it was. There's lots more to come from him! For Marin, it was a welcome return to the podium of a major special event, and certainly is a good confidence builder heading into next weekend's Porsche Esports Supercup race.
At the end of the day, we do have to congratulate our rivals in Williams Esports who drove an excellent race and showed great pace throughout the race. Over the past 11 months since we started racing, we've found ourselves regularly up against this strong side, and they got another one from us. Kudos to them though - a true class outfit and deserved winners. 👏
For the ASTRO Gaming Audi R18 LMP1, the squad did an excellent job throughout the race, running as high as P5 but in the end were caught out with what makes Le Mans such a tough race. The slightest of errors can have massive consequences, and at the exit of Indianapolis Sam Blacklock was caught out with more wheel spin than expected, and a hard shunt into the wall with just under 5 hours to go. Despite the non-finish, it was a really great run for Dayne Warren, Ethan Warren and Sam, who are still quite new to this level of competition, and this only will bring them back fighting harder and stronger next time.
