Patrick Pilet: "This is one of the most beautiful races of the season"

Patrick Pilet clinched the GT Le Mans (GTLM) victory last time out at Long Beach, round three of the 2016 IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship. The 2015 class champion shared the winning #911 Porsche 911 RSR with Nick Tandy. The two drivers are fourth overall in GTLM points standing.

The series will stay in California for round four of the season and move to the beautiful and demanding Laguna Seca circuit.

Patrick Pilet is looking forward to a strong weekend with Porsche North America at Laguna Seca, one of his favourite tracks in the calendar.

This is one of the most beautiful races of the season. The circuit is located in a magnificent setting and it’s very demanding. 

The track is like a rollercoaster, and the tyres come under extreme stresses. It’s crucial to find a good compromise with the car’s setup and tyre choice. 

Last year we launched our catch-up campaign at Laguna Seca, which ultimately led to the title. Hopefully this is a good omen.
