STUNNING SECOND CONSECUTIVE ELMS VICTORY FOR PHIL

Stunning second consecutive ELMS victory for Phil Hanson

Phil Hanson brought the curtain down on his first full European Le Mans Series LMP2 campaign in magnificent style (28 Oct). The #22 Ligier of Phil and Filipe Albuquerque (POR) swept home to a second consecutive outright ELMS victory.

Hanson started from third and ran fifth early on before Phil made his first scheduled stop on 47mins. He continued sixth prior to the second scheduled pit-stop, #22 pitting from second place on 92mins. Hanson swept into the lead moments before mid-distance before stopping under Full Course Yellow conditions.

The "sister" #32 jumped the #22 for the lead at the re-start, the pair pitting once more under Safety Car conditions with Albuquerque taking over the #22 who snatched the lead in the pit-lane.

With an hour remaining the top-four cars were covered by one-second with the #22 leading and led by 4secs with 30mins to run, Filipe ultimately taking the chequered flag to repeat their previous win at Spa.
