P6 in WEC Debut at Silverstone

April 13, 2015

The #77 Dempsey Proton Racing Porsche 911 GT3 RSR of Patrick Long, Patrick Dempsey and Marco Seefried claimed 6th place in the team’s FIA World Endurance Championship debut, the globe-trotting sportscar championship. The series next visits the legendary Spa-Francorchamps circuit in Belgium on May 2 before decamping for Le Mans in mid-June.

Long remarked on his race: “It was a tough day for us. Apart from our unscheduled pit stop early on in the race where we had to make several minor changes to the car, everything actually ran according to plan. Working with Patrick and Marco went very well. Patrick did a great job. During his second stint, he was three seconds faster per lap compared to his first. As a team we can build on this – first in Spa, then at Le Mans. That’s our main goal for this season.”
