Two Top-10 Finishes for Tequila Patrón ESM in Le Mans Debut; No. 31 finishes seventh; No. 30 finishes 10th
Tequila Patrón ESM leaves Le Mans with a victory in its own right – the only two-car American-based LMP2 team finished seventh and 10th at its first attempt at the 24 Hours of Le Mans – the longest and most prestigious sportscar event in the world.
Dressed with Rolling Stone liveries, Tequila Patrón ESM competed with two Ligier JS P2-Honda prototypes with Dunlop Motorsports tires. Less than two months ago, Tequila Patrón ESM took delivery of the race cars – its third chassis in five months – and competed at the infamous racing circuit this weekend. In its second-ever race driving the Ligier JS P2, Tequila Patrón ESM team proved it could challenge the competition at the most challenging race – the 24 Hours of Le Mans.
The twice-around-the-clock race provided Tequila Patrón ESM valuable track time with the new chassis and will benefit the team in the upcoming FIA World Endurance Championship (FIA WEC) races. During the 24 Hours of Le Mans, the six drivers completed a total of 641 laps for a combined distance of 5,427.15 miles.
