ANDREWS IMPRESSIVE AT LE MANS DEBUT

Scott Andrews continued his form in LMP3 cars at the world famous Circuit de La Sarthe - Le Mans 24 hour circuit in France. 

Hampered by traffic and strategy in the short 20 minute qualifying session, John Corbett, car owner & co driver started midfield and handed the car to Andrews in 33rd position.
Although only completing one lap in free practice, Scott drove the car from P33 to P16, setting the 4th fastest lap of the race during his stint, on pace with some of the world's best prototype drivers.

"Qualifying wasn't ideal for us, and for John with his relative inexperience in professional prototype racing to only lose a few places and bring the car back in one piece was a good effort. He also had some good speed which was impressive." Andrews said.

"I'm happy with my stint. The car felt great. I'm satisfied that I was able to quickly get up to speed on such a long circuit, especially given the competition I was up against. 
This is an amazing circuit. When you come out of Tertre Rouge, a fast 4th gear corner leading onto the Mulsanne Straight, and you can see race track and beautiful scenery as far as the eye can see. Although you're doing just shy of 300km/h, you do have a lot of time to process what's happening, as you are travelling at terminal speed for around 120 seconds of the lap!"

"Hopefully next year I can pick up a ride in the 24 Hours of Le Mans. This whole week has been an awesome experience." Concluded Andrews.

Unfortunately in race two, John Corbett who again started the race was caught up in an incident involving fellow Aussie Ricky Capo.

Scott now looks to compete in Austria at the famous Red Bull Ring circuit next month.
