WEC – 24 HOURS OF LE MANS: PROSPEED COMPETITION IN PERFECT RACE RHYTHM

ProSpeed LeMans24h 75Porsche911GT3RSR Q3LE MANS (FRA) – The 90th anniversary of the 24 Hours of Le Mans is a motorsport event that nobody wants to miss, and this also applies to ProSpeed Competition and the French drivers François Perrodo, Sébastien Crubilé and Emmanuel Collard. “Manu” Collard at the wheel of the #75 Porsche 911 GT3 RSR placed the car in sixth place in the LM GTE Am category, under highly difficult qualifying conditions. The perfect starting position for this most mythical of all endurance races, which kicks off on the dot of three o’clock on Saturday afternoon. Whereas the ProSpeed Competition drivers, the team and the car showed no signs of weakness, the weather and a whole series of incidents, resulting in red flags, were the main factors in making these qualifying sessions difficult. Notwithstanding these elements the Belgian team found the perfect cruising speed ideally suited to the race. Just after midnight Emmanuel Collard brought the ProSpeed Competition Porsche 911 GT3 RSR into the pit-lane and parked the car in the parc fermé. In the final lap of the last qualifying session of this 2013 edition of the 24 Hours of Le Mans “Manu” Collard had given the team a more than respectable starting position for the race. But more important than the starting position is the fact that both on Wednesday and Thursday everything ran smoothly for the team and drivers and that the successful German GT and its crew are perfectly prepared to take on the race.
