It hasn’t been the best year on the ELMS trail for the United Autosport runners. The Ligier has not been able to keep the outright pace with the Orecas and they have had their fair share of bad luck. But with Phil Hanson, they were able to take advantage of the conditions and bring home a much needed win.
The race was tricky though with heavy rain making it difficult for everyone. It was a conservative start for Hanson who took it easy in the rain. This meant that the GDrive and Dragonspeed entries but being a little more sensible and wise strategy calls were able to propel them to the lead.
When the rain got worse and the red flag came out, they were in the ideal position and took their first win of the season.
Listen to what Phil Hanson had to say above.
