It was Ho-Pin Tungs´ fourth 24 hours of Le Mans but the most legendary race of the world did not bring rewards for the very good performance the Baxi DC Racing Team Alpine showed in the first sixteen hours of this years edition. Technical woes, probably a brake failure, forced the Alpine A460 Nissan to retire from the race in the early morning on Sunday. ´I joined the celebration of the victory by our sister team, but with mixed feelings,´ Ho-Pin Tung commented.   ´Of course I was happy and proud for them with their first position in LMP 2, but I felt the pain of having missed the podium finish, which was in sight for us.´

The early phases of the race the Baxi DC Racing Team Alipne made a rather late decision to turn to the intermediate tyres at the drying tarmac of Le Mans. The pace of the LMP 2 Alpine A460 Nissan was excellent and a podium finish was in sight at day break, Sunday. Almost constantly the team drove in the top three lap times in the LMP 2 class.   It was Nelson Panciatici at the wheel when the car crashed at the circuits´ first corner with a speed of over 300 km/h. Technicians and engineers are still looking for the cause of the accident, but most likely a brake failure was the malefactor.

Ho-Pin Tung : ´David Cheng, Nelson Panciatici and myself we sure had a very good chance to get to the rostrum in LMP 2. Unfortunately the mechanical aspect of this sport decided the outcome for us of this great event.´
