A technical hitch did not allow the possible podium for Pecom Racing at Fuji

FUJI, October 14th – An electrical hitch on the Pecom Racing Oreca 03 Nissan and the consequent forced pit stop of 5 minutes did not allow the possibile second position in the LMP2 category.

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.
