Team Malaysia claims historic win at World Endurance Championship race
The all-Malaysian team of Jazeman Jaafar, Nabil Jeffri and Weiron Tan prove that endurance, determination and perseverance are the makings of a champion as they clock their first ever win at the World Endurance Championship (WEC) race in Fuji yesterday. This win comes just after the trio claimed their first WED podium win back in August when they finished second in their class at the 6 Hours of Silverstone in UK.
They managed a total of 217 laps behind the wheel of the no37 Jackie Chan DC Racing Oreca-Gibson, finishing 26 seconds ahead of their competitors to emerge victorious in the LMP2 class. That placed them sixth in the overall podium of the 6 Hours of Fuji race.
Congratulations on a win well deserved!
The next round of the FIA World Endurance Championship will take place in Shanghai on 18 November.
