A milestone in motorsport history by becoming the first Chinese outfit to compete in the Le Mans 24 Hours
Leading Hong Kong-based motorsport team, KC Motorgroup Ltd. (KCMG) made history as it announced its entry in one of the world’s most prestigious races, the Le Mans 24 Hours. KCMG will be marked as the first ever Chinese team to compete in what is hailed to be the greatest endurance race in the world of motorsport.
Ultimately however the team’s blue and white #47 Morgan-Nissan LMP2 was forced to retire with a leaking fuel cell after 19 hours and 241 laps of the world-famous French endurance classic. The team, represented by drivers Alexandre Imperatori, Ho-Pin Tung and Matthew Howson, qualified a superb sixth in class before making an assured start to the 24 Hours on Saturday despite the tricky, changeable weather conditions and multiple safety car periods.
"It was an honour to represent China in Le Mans and I am looking forward to returning next year. Thank you to everyone who supported us in our journey to the Le Mans 24 Hours! It has been a great adventure for all of us"
