Richard Bradley says his maiden Le Mans victory is an 'unbelievable experience' but will try to make next year a less stressful event for team boss Paul Ip.

The KCMG squad dominated the LMP2 category at the 2015 Le Mans 24 Hours by leading almost every lap of the race but was pushed the entire distance by the Jota Sport Gibson and the #26 G-Drive Racing Ligier teams.

Bradley, who claims his first Le Mans victory in just his second year of racing at the blue riband event, felt it was an almighty battle after his Oreca 05-Nissan machine suffered technical problems in the early morning period of the race.

"It definitely wasn't a walk in the park but we did lead every lap except for four," Bradley said. "We did have some problems along the way. It was a really, really wonderful race and is important to me and an unbelievable experience."

The 23-year-old driver also joked that while his KCMG machine was in the pits with a mechanical fault his team manager Ip almost had a heart attack and promised to make it easier on him next year when the Hong Kong-based squad aims to retain its Le Mans LMP2 crown.

"Our team manager Paul Ip needed a gentle heart bypass, especially last night," he explained. "It was wonderful for him that we dominated the race but he is asking for us to make it a bit easier next time."
