Signatech Alpine Matmut Claims LMP2 Victory on Dunlop

21 June 2018

Signatech Alpine Matmut and its drivers Nicholas Lapierre, Andre Negrao and Pierre Thiriet have been declared winners of the 2018 Le Mans 24 Hours after G-Drive Racing’s #26 Oreca, driven by Roman Rusinov, Andrea Pizzitola and Jean-Eric Vergne, crossed the line first but was subsequently excluded for a refuelling equipment infringement. Graff-SO24 consequently moved up to second and United Autosports’ #32 Ligier is now classified third. The top four finishers had all chosen to compete on Dunlop tyres.
Dunlop teams chose to race with a wide variety of strategies including all ‘A’/soft, all ‘B’/medium and left/right and front/rear splits between the two. Several teams also chose to quadruple stint.

The race formed the second round of the FIA World Endurance Championship Super Season. Signatech Alpine was already the highest championship-registered team eligible for points and moves into the lead in the title standings.

“Thank you to the 10 teams that chose Dunlop and congratulations to Signatech Alpine,” enthused Dunlop Motorsport director, Ben Crawley. “We made a major commitment in replacing all our 2017 specifications for this season which shows how seriously we take open competition racing because our customers push us to go faster and further than ever before.”
