All at Inter Europol Competition welcome today’s confirmation from the FIA and the ACO that all scrutineering and technical checks relating to the 24 Hours of Le Mans have been passed and the race results have now been confirmed as official, and our hard-earned victory has been ratified.
Since taking the chequered flag at the legendary race in June, there has been relentless speculation and innuendo that our victory was somehow achieved by foul means.
It was never in our doubt that the victory was achieved through the hard work, endeavour and skills of our drivers, engineers, management team, owners and crew to embark on a strategy and performance that was not only innovative but brave and daring and executed to perfection.
It was disappointing in the light of the accusations of some rival competitors and certain aspects of the media that we were not fully able to enjoy and celebrate our achievements.
But now, with today’s confirmation from the FIA that our victory was legitimate, we intend to celebrate to the fullest and push on in our attempts to deliver the FIA World Endurance Championship for our team.
