Richardson scores podium at home race

George Richardson’s first European Le Mans Series race of 2015 saw him celebrating on the podium at Silverstone last Sunday. Following an epic battle with LMGTE class winners Gulf, George and JMW team-mates Sam Tordoff and Rob Smith finished in second place in the four hour endurance race.

“It was a fantastic start to the season,” said George. “Pre-testing hadn’t been great, suggesting we might be on the back foot – but on the day, our pace proved our fears unfounded. Though a late safety car gave the Gulf Porsche a clear advantage and cost us the race, the team performed brilliantly. There’s no doubt we’ve now established ourselves as the car and the team to beat in this year’s ELMS. “

“Thanks to everyone who has contributed so far – I’m excited to be back behind the wheel and I’m looking forward to the next ELMS race at Imola on 17 May.”
