Adds WEC victory to his ELMS championship
In keeping with his new title of ELMS Champion, earned from a podium at Petit Le Mans, Mathias Beche won the LM P2 class at the 6 Hours of Shanghai final of the World Endurance Championship 2012.
Mathias Beche (Oreca 03-Nissan n°25 | ADR-Delta): "It's just great to end the season as it began, with a victory! It was a very interesting weekend and insightful. I could see a different way of working with Team ADR Delta and I thank them for the confidence they have placed in me. This is a very professional team, work to detail and with a strong focus on performance. How they work diverges in some way from what I had experienced before. Even if the car remains the same as I've driven on paper, it is on many levels very different and I had to adapt slightly the way I drive. Thank you to my two teammates John Martin and Tor Graves, who both did a remarkable job. John only just missed taking pole, we won and I managed to bring home the fastest lap, so all in all a perfect weekend! I also re-discovered the WEC (World Endurance Championship) a magnificent championship again with a very high level in LM P2 - a positive end to a very positive year!”
