Guernsey's Andy Priaulx secured a podium position at the Le Mans 24 Hour race, finishing third in the GTE class.

Driving with Dirk Muller and Joey Hand in a BMW M3 GT, Priaulx's team finished behind Olivier Beretta's Corvette team, with the Ferrari team second.

Priaulx said: "The aim was to finish this race and that was achieved.

"The podium was something we desperately wanted, so this finish is pretty special for all of us as Le Mans is never going to be an easy race."

He added: "A lot of credit has to go to the Schnitzer guys who run Team BMW Motorsport. It is my second visit here and I had two awesome team mates in Dirk and Joey."
