Strategy denies Nielsen Racing in MLMC Barcelona 

Strategy and the timing of numerous safety car periods in the season-opening round of Michelin Le Mans Cup today in Barcelona ultimately dictated the final results. Starting sixth in the #7 Ligier with Tony Wells and finishing P7 with Colin Noble certainly didn’t reflect the great pace that the Nielsen Racing duo enjoyed in the two-hour event today.

With two, mandated 130-second stops required, Colin ran as high as fourth in the closing stages, but with rivals having taken alternate strategy routes - plus an earlier final stop - this meant that despite his considerable efforts, he was unable to build on the great opening stint from Tony come the chequered flag.

The sister #20 Grainmarket entry saw Mark Crader make great gains early on, vaulting 25th to 15th before handing over to Alex Mortimer. An extra stop required in the final 20 minutes however consigned the pairing to 22nd position after a race that promised so much.

COLIN NOBLE
“It was an action-packed race and bit of a dog fight through the whole two hours of racing. Myself and Tony worked our way through the pack and looked set for a good podium position. We went for the undercut on the second stop, but it wasn’t to be, as the timing was really unfortunate as a full course yellow came out as we exited the pits. So, it’s very very frustrating, but on the positive, the team again gave us a great race car once again.”
