Marco Seefried Ready to Go

076a4424About four hours into the Petit Le Mans race, and Marco Seefried is suited, booted and ready to go.  He took over for fellow driver Andy Lally in the Magnus Racing Audi R8.  Seedfried joins the team for the longer endurance races, but he is well known to the team and very fast and very experienced.

By this point, Lally in the Audi had suffered damage from contact inflicted by the GTLM Porsche #912 when the Porsche failed to navigate the slower pace of the Audi which had just emerged from the pits after a stop.  The Porsche took the brunt of the damage, although inspection of Lally’s right rear after hi stop to switch to Seedfried (and fresh rubber) revealed a badly damaged wheel.  It is a testament to the wheel and the Continental Tire that neither failed during Lally’s stint despite the damage.
