Historic LPM2 Win For In Hungary - Web Exclusive

The British-based car was followed across the line by five other LMP2 cars.

Aug 24, 2010

For the first time since the start of the Le Mans Series in 2004, a round of the competition has been won by an LMP2 prototype.

Strakka Racing's Michelin-shod HPD-ARX 01c caused a stir by claiming outright victory at the Hungaroring.

All the LMP1 prototypes were hit by technical problems, including the Oreca-run Peugeot, which was delayed by transmission trouble while leading. The collective rout of the front-runners enabled the Strakka Racing HPD-ARX 01c of Watts/Leventis/Kane to clinch outright victory. Lapping on medium-compound Michelins, the HPD-ARX 01c claimed pole position at the twisty Hungarian circuit, too, lapping faster than all the top LMP1 prototypes, before going on to win the six-hour race. The British-based car was followed across the line by five other LMP2 cars. The fifth and final round of the 2010 Le Mans Series will take teams to Silverstone over the weekend of 10-12 September. The British race will also kick off the inaugural Intercontinental Le Mans Cup, which means Audi and Peugeot will face each other for the first time since June's Le Mans 24 Hours.
