It was a fun format and it allowed the different drivers of each team to try to beat the best lap time! We manage to take the TQ

We were a team of five drivers racing on the XRAY X1, we worked quite a lot on the car to have a fast battery replacement in the pit without taking of the clips of the body shell and also adjusting the setup of the car as the LMP body shell gives high rear stability and miss a bit of front grip.
The car was perfect: easy to drive and fast! The tire wear was very low so we did the whole race with onset of front and rear Hudy tires.
The race was very tight all along with other teams as after 3 hours of race we were in the same lap with the Blaireau Team! After 4h they faced some issues with their sensor and it gave us a gap in the lead that we kept until the end!
