The Oreca 03 Nissan No.49 of the Argentian team, driven by Luis Perez Companc-Pierre Kaffer-Nicolas Minassian dominated the second race of the WEC and gained the second seasonal podium after the third place at Silverstone (in the middle of last April).

The victory shows the high potential of the Pecom Racing squad in the fight for the championship. Now, Pecom Racing is first in the LMP2 team classification with 41 points; in the same way, Perez Companc, Kaffer and Minassian are first in the World Endurance Cup for LMP2 drivers (41 punti).

Companc-Kaffer-Minassian started from the pole position but lost one place after the green light. From the first pit stop, the Pecom Racing Oreca 03 grabbed the lead and the trio gained a wide gap from the competitors in the following four hours.

In the fifth hour, the trio was even first in the class when a collision with an LMP1 Toyota damaged the front-left wing and the tyre of the Pecom Racing Oreca.

The team’s technicians managed to repair the No. 49 Oreca which re-joined the race after few seconds. Thanks to extremely quick repairs in the pits, the team enabled the car to continue and collect the top result.

In the Pecom Racing’s victory the Michelin tires played a very important role.
