Praga at 24H Le Mans: Wednesday
19 June 2013, Le Mans, France — Wednesday on the Sarthe Circuit saw the Lotus Praga team preparing for the first round of qualifying practice, which took place between hours 22:00 and 24:00. The team didn’t make it out for the day’s free practice, so this was the first time back in the car since test day. With a qualifying cut short due to a red flag, the team did the best they could, with car #31 finishing 13th in the LMP2 class (car #32 did not record any time).
They’ll get their chance to improve on Thursday evening, with two more qualifying sessions taking place from 19:00 to 21:00 and 22:00 to 24:00. Let’s hope the weather holds out and the track stays dry. The team will also have an autograph session at the Lotus Cars stand in the Village on Thursday at 17:00. Ending the week on Friday, before the official race starts, the Lotus Praga team will partake in the driver’s parade, taking place in the town centre of Le Mans.
