Strakka Racing HPD ARX-01 First in LMP2 Class, Fifth Overall

2010 Strakka Racing HPD ARX-01

The Acura ARX-01 used by Fernandez Racing to win the 2009 ALMS LMP2 title has finished first in its class and fifth overall at the 2010 24 Hours of Le Mans. 

Strakka Racing’s HPD ARX-01 lead the LMP2 category most of the race challenged only by Highcroft’s HPD ARX-01. While trailing by only 2 laps, the Highcroft car was struck with a water pressure problem that kept it in and out of the pits for the final hours. They were eventually able to get the car back out finishing the race 9th in LMP2 and 25th overall. Second place in LMP2 went to the OAK Racing team who finished six laps behind Strakka. 

The RML Lola Coupe powered by the HPD(Honda Performance Development) V8 engine came in 3rd in LMP2 and 8th overall. 

Despite the water pressure issue that prevented what have could of been a 1-2 finish for Honda Performance Development, it was an impressive showing for its first attempt at the 24 Hours of Lemans.

    I too would have liked to see the Strakka team finish higher. Still a good race though!
