ORECA, Lizards added to retirement list

The Flying Lizard Motorsport team has been added to the retirement list in the Le Mans 24 Hours following an accident in the 15th hour.

Running behind the Safety Car, which had been called out due to debris on the circuit, Darren Law went off into the tyres at the first chicane with the team revealing that it was unsure of the cause of the incident.

While damage to the car has yet to be evaluated, it has been sufficient to prevent Law from bringing the #80 Porsche back to the pits and the car – which had been the leading Porsche in GT2 at the time of the accident – was forced to retire.

Law has been checked over by medics following the accident, but it reported to be without any injury.

Elsewhere, the ORECA challenge is now down to one after the #10 car of Bruno Senna, Stephane Ortelli and Tiago Monteiro was retired following a number of incidents which left the team without enough spares to carry out further repairs.

The Hankook Team Farnbacher Ferrari is also now out of the race, while Andrea Piccini abandoned the delayed Racing Box Lola after stopping on the circuit.
