In the “Fuji 6 Hours”, penultimate round of the FIA World Endurance Championship (Wec), Luis Perez Companc, Pierre Kaffer and Nicolas Minassian drove a perfect race.

Up to the last pit stop, the trio had the concrete chance to take the silver medal position. But during that pit stop, the technical problem emerged neutralising the possibility to finish one more race on the podium.

The Oreca 03 #49 was 4th under the chequered flag of the Japan’s race in the LMP2 category and there is the great second place in the LMP2 Team Championship on 129 points.
