#75 GTE car earns second straight P3 finish in NEO Endurance, LMP1 entry ends up in P6 after repairs
The #75 Porsche 911 RSR earned yet another P3 finish (GTE class) in the NEO Endurance race at Interlagos. Marc Pérez and Adri Pérez drove masterfully and came back from their P10 place in the grid after a poor Qualifying session. Marc managed to end his first stint in P2 but had to serve a 15-second Stop&Hold penalty after colliding with an HPD car who hit the brakes too early on pit entry, so they were forced to take care of business and come back from P10 once again. In the end, Adri and Marc finished the race on the podium and just five seconds short of fighting with Army Racing for P2, a brilliant result considering how many positions they needed to recover throughout the race.
Good race from both of our entries. Their pace was even better than the final result.

The #13 Porsche 919 LMP1 car weren’t lucky either. David Pérez and Víctor Lobato had everything going their way and were sitting in P4 when they were hit from behind and sent to the wall. The car needed to be repaired and left the pits on P12, but Pérez and Lobato showed their good pace and managed to see the checkered flag in P6, earning some valuable points after the chaotic race in the Circuit of the Americas.
Both of MSI eSports entries will try to improve this result in the next race at Suzuka, where they will be hoping to earn more points and fight for the top positions in the standings.
