Nick Tandy says his job in the six hours of Nurburgring was made 'very easy' by his KCMG co-drivers Matt Howson and Richard Bradley, as he maintained his winning run in the FIA World Endurance Championship after his glorious Le Mans 24 Hours victory with Porsche.

The British driver made an impressive return to LMP2 squad KCMG at the German circuit by taking the LMP2 class victory in the ORECA 05 Nissan machine, fighting off the challenge of the two G-Drive Ligier machines and SARD Morand Morgan.

Tandy got a terrific start from LMP2 pole to pull out a healthy cushion on his rivals before handing over to Bradley and Howson for the lengthy middle stints. Tandy was able to bring the #47 home to win the LMP2 race by over a minute and extend KCMG's overall lead in the championship standings to 15 points.

The factory Porsche driver was delighted by the KCMG's performance to grab a second consecutive winner's trophy in the WEC after his Le Mans success in LMP1 alongside Nico Hulkenberg and Earl Bamber in June.

"What a fantastic race," Tandy said. "We did an excellent job for a six-hour race and equal seven stints we managed to stretch the fuel, which was a concern before the race.

"We pulled a gap at the start and by the time I was in the car at the end, Richard and Matt have done such a great job. My work was very easy at the end of the race, so it was a fantastic team effort and its great to continue our winning run - both KCMG and myself."
