GALLERY – 2016 24 Hours of Le Mans – LMP2

by Nick Smith

For the third of our galleries from the 2016 Le Mans 24 Hours, in partnership with’s photographer Craig Robertson, we are focusing on the LMP2 category. P2 is a strictly Pro-Am class with officially no manufacturer involvement which helps to explain the 23 car entry. There was a 24th LMP2 car in the field too, running in the CDNT or Garage 56 class. This machine was a specially adapted Morgan-Nissan run by Oak Racing for SRT41.

The SRT41 effort was unique in that the car was adapted to fit the needs of Frederic Seusset, the quadruple amputee racing driver. He was joined in the car by Christophe Tinseau and Jean-Bernard Beuvet and the trio made history as the first Garage 56 entry to make it to the end of the race.

Manor had a decent showing at their first Le Mans

Tracy Krohn struggled at points in the Ligier
Both Signatech Alpines ran well throughout the race
The Strakka Gibson was also a reliable runner, it'll be the last time open-top cars take on La Sarthe
