Brendon Hartley produced the goods for Murphy Prototypes today in the #118 Oreca-Nissan at the team’s first Petit Le Mans qualifying session. After setting provisional pole with his 1:12.382 lap time, he ultimately took the chequered flag in P4 in the LMP2 category after an incredibly tight fought finish. Only three tenths of a second separate the top LMP2 four cars on the provisional Qualifying classification time sheet.
Greg Murphy, Murphy Prototypes Founder “Qualifying capped what has been a great week so far for the team. The ALMS organisers and American fans have welcomed us with open arms and we are thoroughly enjoying our Petit Le Mans experience at this fantastic track. We are happy with our position and probably could have gone for pole, but as is consistent with our strategy all season, we have our eye firmly on the race tomorrow.”
