Second best finish for Nielsen in the Road to Le Mans

Nielsen Racing’s 2020 Le Mans weekend gets off to a positive start, securing valuable championship points in La Sarthe for their Le Mans Cup campaign.

The #7 DUQUEINE M30 D08 of Colin Noble and Tony Wells ended the 13-lap epic to finish fourth; missing out on a podium by just 2.5 seconds. Tony started the race only to be pushed out wide soon after lights out – ending his stint 10th. Colin hopped in after six laps – more than 50 seconds behind the race leader. Fortunately, Colin’s ever-improving pace, secured him the second fastest lap of the race.

The #10 D08 of Canadian pairing Garett Grist and Rob Hodes took the chequered flag 15th – the same position they qualified in; an impressive result considering the Le Mans Cup crew worked through the night to rebuild the car in time for this morning’s qualifying session, following damage sustained during yesterday’s FP2.
