Hamilton Completes Successful LMP2 Test

1 Mins read

Archie Hamilton completed a successful test today as he got behind the wheel of Team Hope Polevision Racing’s LMP2 Oreca at Magny-Cours in France.

The 19-year old completed 30 laps in the Formula Le Mans 6.2 litre V8 prototype in a view to get on the ladder to 24 Hours of Le Mans.

Hamilton summed up the test: “I'm very lucky to have several options for series to race in next year. Formula Le Mans looked a good choice bearing in mind that my goal is Le Mans. I was very hopeful that it would feel right but it was more than that – it was amazing! The car felt very strong and powerful but the braking was fantastic and it all just worked brilliantly. I know I have a lot to learn and this felt like an ideal place to push myself and learn without going too far. It's now a case of finding the budget to secure a seat with Hope Polevision Racing or one of the other top teams. Racing in the Le Mans Series itself would be a dream and a big step closer to my dream of winning Le Mans itself.”

Driver coach Stuart Hall was impressed with Hamilton’s performance: “Archie did a very good job today. He had a relatively short time in the car to take in a lot of information. He was given a brief and he fulfilled it very proficiently. He was consistent and learning lap after lap. The team was very pleased with his attitude, feedback and the way he worked with the engineers, which shows he's not just got the pace but the intelligence to be a successful endurance racer. From what I saw today Formula Le Mans is definitely a good place for Archie to be aiming.”
