The Isotta Fraschini Duqueine team is celebrating this weekend after their best finish of the season in the world-renowned 24 Hours of Le Mans. The event, which is one of the most prestigious races worldwide, is considered the most challenging endurance race of the season with 24 hours of nonstop racing split between just three drivers. The 2024 edition of the event featured more challenges than normal with torrential rain throughout the evening hours that continued until the final checkered flag flew.

The Isotta Fraschini Duqueine team’s trio of Carl Bennett, Antonio Serravalle, and Jean-Karl Vernay achieved their highest result of the season so far, claiming 14th at the checkered flag. The trio climbed eight positions throughout the 24-hour race, and four of those hours were under a yellow flag due to severe weather. An early climb showed the #11 up two positions within the first five hours and two and more positions after hour ten. The last bit of movement came just before the yellow flag caution period at hour 15 and continued up to the 14th position in the last five hours of green flag racing.

Reflecting on the team’s achievement, Carl Bennett shares, “This race is a true test of teams and drivers. It’s long hours and absolutely grueling on the body, but an absolute honor to be a part of. The team has been consistently climbing the charts every race weekend, continuing to get better and better. This was arguably the hardest event of the season, so hopefully we’ll have an even better result in São Paulo next month.”

Following their performance, Carl Bennett and the rest of the Isotta Fraschini Duqueine team are gearing up for the next challenge. They will be back in action at Autodromo Jose Carlos Pace in Brazil from July 12-14 for round five of the FIA World Endurance Championship, the Rolex 6 Hours of São Paulo.
