The drivers of the Argentinian team – Louis Perez Companc, Pierre Kaffer and Nicolas Minassian – were third in the endurance race of Sunday, April 14th.

The Pecom Racing Oreca 03 powered by Nissan (with Michelin tyres ) started from the P7 on the grid; following, the race of the Pecom Racing drivers was troubled by a collision with another LMP2 prototype which crashed into its front-right wing. Thanks to extremely quick repairs in the pits, clever strategy at the wall and very fast stints of each of the three drivers, the team enabled to collect a top-three result.

The drivers of Pecom Racing, however, did not celebrate the podium soon after the end of the “6 Hours of Silverstone”: they took the chequered flag in fourth position.

Just a few hours later, the organisation of the world championship has decided to penalize the squad that preceded in the standing (removing 1 laps) for an irregularity observed during the race. This fact permitted the third place for Pecom Racing and important points gained.
