KCMG Looking to Increase LMP2 Lead at Nurburgring


As the 2015 FIA World Endurance Championship returns, LMP2 points leaders KCMG are aiming to extend their advantage in the standings at the 6 Hours of Nurburgring.

The team won their class at the 24 Hours of Le Mans, after leading for the vast majority of the race, thanks to strong drives from Richard Bradley, Matt Howson and Nicolas Lapierre, who filled in for Nick Tandy.

For the remainder of the season, Tandy returns to the KCMG ORECA 05, after entering the previous two rounds in Porsche’s Le Mans-winning third LMP1 entry. The British trio last drove together at the season-opener at Silverstone in April.

“Since the last time I raced with KCMG back at Silverstone, I’ve been fortunate not only to win Le Mans with Porsche, but also races in VLN at the Nurburgring as well as three races in North America with the Porsche GTLM team,” explained Nick Tandy. “So I’m really hoping to carry on this success in the LMP2 class and try to extend KCMG’s lead in the WEC championship.”

“I’m very excited to be racing again after a long break since Le Mans,” added Richard Bradley. “We had a very productive test at the Nurburgring a month ago and after the performance we showed in Le Mans and the developments we’ve made with the car, we can look forward to a good result and hope to consolidate our championship lead.”
