JRM Racing’s successful 2012 24 Hours of Le Mans campaign was recognized this weekend by the British Racing Mechanics Club.
The club, which recognizes excellence in mechanical engineering and preparation of racing cars, awarded one of its prestigious trophies to JRM for crewing the highest-placed British entry in Le Mans last year during its annual dinner on 26 January.
The annual BRMC awards dinner is hosted at Brooklands, with trophies also presented to the chief mechanic of the highest placed British car in the FIA Formula One World Championship for Drivers, the highest placed British car in the British Grand Prix and the highest placed British car in the FIA World Rally Championship.
Graham Leslie accepted the trophy on behalf of JRM Racing chief mechanic Paul Greves and commented, ‘Finishing Le Mans is one of the hardest achievements in motor racing and it was a real team effort to get to the flag, so we are delighted to accept this award on behalf of the entire crew who contributed to the result.
Having your efforts recognized by peers in the industry is always a privilege and we are very proud to have been awarded this prize. Thank you to the BRMC. The 2012 result gives us confidence for this year, when we hope to improve on last year’s finish.’
JRM Racing has filed an entry for the 2013 24 Hours of Le Mans, which will take place on 22 – 23 June.
