Paul Ricard, France
Official Test


I'm very satisfied

Thor-Christian Ebbesvik and Race Performance finished the Le Mans Series opener at Paul Ricard in fifth position.

-I'm very satisfied with my own driving. The Oreca-Judd was a new car for me, but it was good, and I was among the three fastest LMP2-drivers in my stints, the 27 year old Norwegian says.

Race Performance was on their way towards a second place, but then something in the steering broke, and the team needed some time to repair the damage.

-It was a shame, but these things happens. The most important thing is the speed, and that was really good.

The deal with Race Performance was just for this race, but Thor-Christian Ebbesvik hopes to drive all the races in the Le Mans Series.

-My aim is to do the whole championship, even though the winter has been tough with the funding.
