Kevin Buckler

Rookie experience at Le Mans

"I was really nervous my first stint and didn’t want to make any mistakes. After my second stint, I feel much better, more comfortable with the track. We softened the swaybar and that has helped incredibly. Our times are right on and we have pushed the car more in the last couple of hours. The Michelin tires are amazing, I pushed the car more and there was absolutely no squeal, they were perfect, in fact, we may have been able to do a double stint on them. I have noticed that a lot of the guys out there are slowing down now that it’s dark, but we haven’t been, which is good. Everything is perfect, the team is operating at an optimal level."

The team will run double stints for the next few hours.

No. 81 continues in second behind the Freisinger car.
