The success of JRM at the 2012 24 Hours of Le Mans has been recognized by the British Racing Mechanics Club.
The club awarded one of its trophies, for excellence in mechanical engineering and preparation of racing cars, to JRM for being the highest placed British entry at the prestigious event at its annual dinner on January 26th.
JRM ran a faultless race at Le Mans, as Karun Chandhok, Peter Dumbreck and David Brabham brought the Honda HPD ARX-03a home in sixth place overall.
“Finishing Le Mans is one of the hardest achievements in motor racing and it was a real team effort to get to the flag.” said Graham Leslie, accepting the trophy on behalf of JRM Racing chief mechanic, Paul Greves. Having your efforts recognized by peers in the industry is always a privilege and we are very proud to have been awarded this prize. Thank you to the BRMC. The 2012 result gives us confidence for this year, when we hope to improve on last year’s finish.”
Hosted at Brooklands, the BRMC Awards dinner also saw awards given to the highest placed British car in the FIA Formula One World Championship for Drivers, the highest placed British car in the British Grand Prix and the highest placed British car in the FIA World Rally Championship.
