CHALLENGING RACE FOR THE G-DRIVE RACING LIGIER JS P2
After their brilliant victories in Shanghai and Fuji, Roman Rusinov, Olivier Pla and Julien Canal finished 4th at the 6 Hours of Bahrain, the penultimate round of the FIA World Endurance Championship.
The trio, driving the #26 G-Drive Racing Ligier JS P2-Nissan, developed by Onroak Automotive, and shod with Dunlop tyres, had a couple of issues in the race. Although they were one of the most powerful and quickest cars of the LMP2 class, because of the time lost in the pits for repairs, they narrowly lost out on a podium finish. This result gives them enough points to take the lead in the team championship.
