After comfortably leading the first 3 hours of the 12 hour race, the #9 Graff Racing Ligier LMP3 suffered from an exhaust issue, forcing the team into the garage and ultimately going 6 laps down before they could send the car back out.
"It's a huge disappointment for us because I know we could've won this race without any issues. But unfortunately that's racing and the team did a mega job to repair the problem so quickly.
"Once you go more than 1 lap down in a competitive race like this, you're basically done for. We managed to get one lap back to finish 5 laps down, which proves to us for sure we had the package to beat."
