“I've never raced at Portimão but tested there a a few weeks back. It's a challenging, tricky and difficult track but awesome. Max and I have made steady process each MLMC weekend, getting faster and challenging ourselves and we hope Portimão continues in the same vein. It's our last MLMC weekend which we have enjoyed enormously with United."
“Portimão is a track which I have not had the pleasure of racing at previously. Earlier this year, I took part in a two day test where I found out that the track was both technical and extremely physical. This is the final race with my Dad this year so I am looking forward to making the most of it.”
“We’ve had a run of misfortune so I just want to end the season positively. I’ve not raced at Portimão but tested there a couple of years ago - my first time in a LMP3. There’s a lot of elevation changes and blind corners that make it a hard circuit. I’m looking forward to the challenge and hoping for a good and enjoyable race."
“We’re hoping to finish on a high with a good result and a clean weekend after a few tough rounds for the 22 car crew - it will be good to reward them all with a strong result. It’s my first time racing at Portimão but have tested there. It’s a great track, I love the elevation changes and it’s a proper driver's track with a great mix of corners and unsighted braking zones."
"For this final race, my aim is to stay out of trouble and hopefully give the car to Wayne in a top-10 position and let him move us up from there. This weekend will mark my fifth race at Portimão, my third with the team. The track is great and is the most physically demanding one we race at during the season. It's very technical with many corners that are off camber with non-traditional braking zones."
“I’m really excited for the final round at Portimão but it’s hard to believe it’s the end of the season. It’s a track I’ve won at before and been on the podium plenty of times so hopefully that will continue. We had a really positive test there a few weeks ago so we’ll be able to hit the ground running. John has been driving fantastically well and we’ve had a strong car all season, so the plan is to finish the year on a high!"
“I want to finish on a high in order to keep everyone motivated for the next season. I’ve raced at Portimão a couple of times and enjoy the track very much. It’s like a rollercoaster with some challenging blind corners and a good combination of high and slow speed corners."
“I’m really excited for the final round in Portimão. We haven’t had the most successful season in terms of results so we’re just fully focused on having a perfect weekend to end the year on a high.”
Charlie Kemp, Le Mans Cup Team Manager:
“Another season comes to an end and it’s been hugely enjoyable, welcoming back old friends of the series for another year, in the likes of John and Wayne and Daniel and Andy, as well as racing for the first time with Shaun and Max and Andres and Garnet- it really has been a pleasure.
We are looking to end the season on a high and make the most of the final race weekend of the year before the winter break.”
