Warm Up at Le Mans

All 59 teams were on the track, for the short 15 minutes Warm-Up ahead of the 24 Hours of Le Mans.

There has been raining overnight, but a Porsche Cup race ahead of the 15-minute session, had moved some of the water away from the track surface.

Graff #39 had a spin in Indianapolis, but thankfully avoided any damage to the car.

DragonSpeed #21 stopped at the Second Chicane, but Juan Pablo Montoya managed to fire the car up again.

Nicki Thiim took a bonus lap in the roundabout, at the end of the Mulsanne Straight, but everything under control.

ByKolles Racing Team #4 had a few issues to steer into the pit entry. This was once again Bruno Spengler, who had either been unlucky on the track, or just plain slow. He was significantly slower than his teammates, so he will most likely be the third driver to race in the race itself, with Tom Dillmann starting the race, and Oliver James Webb most likely taking the second stint.

Inter Europol Competition #34 had a quick trip off the track at the pit entry, with Matevos Isaakyan behind the wheel.

Toyota Gazoo Racing #8 and #7 were the only two LMP1 cars to post a time.

Racing Team Nederland #29 was fastest in LMP2, ahead of Panis Racing #31, Eurasia Motorsport #35 and Nielsen Racing #24.

AF Corse Ferrari #51 was fastest in GTE Pro, ahead of Porsche #91 and Porsche #92.

AF Corse Ferrari #54 was the quickest in GTE Am, ahead of MR Racing Ferrari #70 and AF Corse Ferrari #83,

Only 33 cars posted a time. The rest of the teams only did a single lap, or only in- and out laps from the pits.

Everything thankfully went smooth for the teams, so there should be 59 cars ready to take the start at 14.30 local time.
