MG XPOWER Hot Wheels Racing

Weather / Track: Warm / Dry

After qualifying 6th and 12th Mark Blundell and Anthony Reid were in the driving seat of the two MG Lola EX 257's for the start of the 70th edition 24 Heures du Mans. Both drivers made a scheduled stop on lap 11 for fuel and general inspection.

By the time Hughes and Bailey took over, the two MGs were 1st (car 26) and 2nd (car 27) in the LMP675 class.

Car no 26
Anthony Reid, Warren Hughes, Jonny Kane 5th Overall / 1st in Class

From 1600 hours: Anthony Reid handed to Warren Hughes @ 1745

Anthony Reid: "I can honestly say that the MG is the best racing car I've ever driven, it's a fabulous machine. There's a lot of traffic out there. Obviously as we're in a different class our engine isn't as quick but our speed around corners is very fast so it's very difficult to overtake. I'm really pleased how well the car is running, it's got good grip and if it continues we'll be in very good shape."

Car no 27
Mark Blundell, Julian Bailey, Kevin McGarrity 9th Overall / 2nd in Class

From 1600 hours: Mark Blundell handed to Julian Bailey @ 1745

Mark Blundell: "The start was good, no problems and the car's handling well. The track is quite slippery in places but the car is strong."
