Perfect Michelin Le Mans Cup debut for Oman Racing

Ahmad Al Harthy and Oman Racing team-mate Tom Jackson wrapped up a faultless debut in the Michelin Le Mans Cup with a magnificent win at the Circuit de la Sarthe to impressively conclude their 2017 experience unbeaten. Having scorched to a tremendous GT3 victory during the opening race, the duo converted pole position in the second 55-minute encounter on Saturday morning into a superb win to secure back-to-back successes in front of hundreds of thousands of spectators. With the No.97 Oman Racing Aston Martin V12 Vantage GT3, Muscat driver Al Harthy enjoyed every second on track and led throughout the opening stint. Pitting with just over half an hour to run to hand over to Jackson, the Briton rejoined the race in fifth and worked his way through to the lead before being edged back to second. Then, when a rival Porsche received a time penalty as a result of a short pit-stop, Jackson re-took the lead and victory.
