Nurburgring podium for Sam in WEC

Sam and his G-Drive team-mates Roman Rusinov and Julien Canal earned another LMP2 podium as the World Endurance Championship returned from its summer break with the Six Hours of Nürburgring.

Sam on the podiumSam brought the #26 car home in second place, ahead of the other G-Drive car, ensuring that both remain in touch with the championship-leading KCMG entry as the season reaches its mid-point.

G-Drive Racing team principal Philippe Dumas said: “I’m very proud of the team who’ve done an excellent job all weekend. We had very good pit stops and we had a very good strategy, but KCMG was faster! But we don’t have any regrets even though we would have preferred winning.

"There are still four rounds left, and we will fight to get more victories and continue our battle for the title, which remains our goal.

"We would’ve liked to get the Ligier JS P2 to the top of the podium this weekend though, as a tribute to Guy Ligier.”
