Non dramatic Warm-Up signals good race

It was a Warm Up without any drama for the 24 hours race at Le Mans.

The most dramatic thing that happened was Bykolles Racing Team #4 having a tour through the gravel by the Dunlop bridge, and Car Guy Racing that missed the first chicane on the Mulsanne Straight. We have otherwise seen big problems in Warm Up, but luckily not this year.

Toyota Gazoo Racing #7 with Mike Conway, Kamui Kobayashi and Jose Maria Lopez in #8 were the two fastest cars in LMP1, a couple of seconds in front of Rebellion Racing #3 and SMP Racing #17.

G-Drive Racing #26 with Jean-Eric Vergne, Roman Rusinov and Job van Uitert was the quickest in LMP2, ahead of their teammates TDS Racing #28 (TDS runs G-Drive), with Signatech Alpine Matmut #36 in third.

RLR MSport #43 was out and drove a single lap, while IDEC Sport #48 ran seven laps in total, but without crossing the finish line to set a time.

Jackie Chan DC Racing #37 with Jordan King, Ricky Taylor and David Heinemeier Hansson was P9, in front of High Class Racing #20 with Mathias Beche, Dennis Andersen and Anders Fjordbach.

Gulf Racing Porsche #86 with Mike Wainwright, Ben Barker and Thomas Preining was the quickest GTE Am car, ahead of Team Project 1 Porsche #56 and Kessel Racing Ferrari #60.

In GTE Am, three cars didn’t set any time. Keating Motorspors only drove in and out of the pitlane for eight laps, while TF Sport did two laps on the track. The Polesitting car Dempsey-Proton Racing Porsche #88 was not on the track at all, other than a single lap to check the car.
