DISAPPOINTMENT FOR HANSON IN 'HOME' RACE

Disappointment for Hanson in home ELMS race at Silverstone

Phil Hanson and United Autosports team-mate Filipe Albuquerque suffered poor luck again in the European Le Mans Series. At the start of round four staged at Silverstone, Phil was forced to take evasive action dropping to the back of the LMP2 pack having started in 12th position. However in the opening hour, he managed to make some great moves to climb back into the top-10.

But unfortunately halfway through the second hour, a piece of rubber incredibly found its way inside the #22 Ligier’s cockpit which set off the fire extinguisher which then automatically cut out the engine, forcing Phil to retire the car on the spot.

Next up for Phil will be Round 5 of the ELMS at Spa in Belgium on 23 September.
