Really got caught out last night in qualifying by a localised "slow speed zone" just as the session was ending. Nelson was 3 tenths up on the fastest P2 time on the lap so probably would have took class pole otherwise. In the end ended up 5th in class but a lot more competitive than last year- should be good for the race.

What a race, absolutely flat out form the start. Alpine #36 was in the top 2 for most of it, sadly a suspension failure this Moring meant a lengthy (12 minute) pit stop which dropped them down to to 5th and then a mighty fight back to finish on the podium with a 3rd place. Maybe would not have beaten the super fast Ligier-Nissan that led for so long but when that retired the Signatech team could have probably won.
Far better showing than last year. Well done to all involved.
See the twitter feed for photos.
