This week, Britain's newest Le Mans winner heads back to the scene of the greatest moment of his career so far. But Nick Tandy won't be joining Porsche's LMP1 challenge; he's back in GTE, as is fellow 2015 outright winner Earl Bamber.
Even before the New Year, Tandy knew he was one of the victims of the Volkswagen emissions scandal, as both Porsche and Audi reduced their LMP1 Le Mans assaults by a car each. The winning crew of Tandy/Bamber/Nico Hulkenberg has yet to race an LMP1 machine again.
To say it was hard to take would be an understatement, but Tandy is very much focused on looking ahead.
