Former Formula 1 driver Jean-Eric Vergne (58 Grand Prix with Scuderia Toro Rosso) qualified the Aurus 01-Gibson in 13th position with a time of 3:26.257 during the third session. In the race, the Russian team and Signatech Alpine Matmut gave spectators a stunning duel, but at 09:12 on Sunday after a pit stop, the car refused to restart and the team had to change out the starter. Despite the mechanical hiccup, the #26 Aurus 01-Gibson crossed the finish line in 11th place overall and sixth in the LMP2 class.
