Filip Ugran


In the LMP2 Pro class, the #22 ORECA 07 of Ben Hanley, Marino Sato and Filip Ugran also started P5, after a tight qualifying session where the top five cars were within four tenths of a second.

Ugran took the first stint, moving up to P3 in the first 15 minutes and gaining another position shortly after – putting the #22 up front in P2. An unforeseen tyre change saw the #22 car drop back to P6, with Sato working hard to hold position.

When Hanley took over, the Brit soared through the ranks with eyes locked on the podium, reclaiming P2 in the runnings before a tyre failure with minutes to go dropped the #22 back to P5. With crucial points in the bag, however, the #22 now sits P2 in the championship.

Filip Ugran: “I’m very happy with how the car felt and with my pace, especially in the opening stint taking the car to P2. Although our race was compromised due to multiple tyre failures that we were forced to change – which cost us a lot of time – I’m very happy with how my teammates drove and extracted everything possible from the car. Big thank you to the team for their hard work, I’m looking forward to the next round.” 

Round three of the European Le Mans Series is the 4 Hours of Imola on Sunday 7th July 2024.
