P5 at Spa-Francorchamps for Long, Dempsey, Seefried

May 03, 2015

The #77 Porsche 911 GT3 RSR of Patrick Long, Patrick Dempsey and Marco Seefried finished the ultra-competitive WEC round at Spa-Francorchamps in Belgium in 5th place, after a trouble-free and steady race. The 6 hour event ran entirely caution-free, as the LMP1 class winner managed to ring up 1232.7 km (765 miles) around the legendary grand prix circuit.

Patrick Dempsey remarked after the event, “My first race on this very selective circuit was a fantastic experience. My teammates have all raved about Spa, but my expectations were exceeded. Our qualifying ran without mishap and our 911 RSR’s pace was good in the race. I tried to make as few mistakes as possible, and aside from my spin, I managed this well. All in all, the experience was very positive for the team. Now we can look forward to Le Mans.”
