Paul Ricard, France
Official Test


Fifth place

Team Bruichladdich and Thor-Christian Ebbesvik finished fifth in todays Le Mans Series Race at Hungaroring in Hungary.

-The result is OK, but we had some problems this weekend. We had engine problems during the free practice, and didn't really get the time to find the right set up. In the race it was difficult to overtake, but both my teammates and I did a good job. But before the finish I was hit by a Ferrari, and the car was difficult to drive, the 26 year old Norwegian says.

The LMP2 car was dominating at Hungaroring, with LMP2 cars in the top six. Strakka Racing won, and Team Bruichladdich finished fifth with their Ginetta-Zytek.

-The goal is still to finish the season on the podium in the standings. Let's hope for a good result at Silverstone.
