LMP3 champions in the ELMS receive their prize
American team United Autosports drivers Alex Brundle, Christian England and Mike Guasch, winners of the LM P3 Drivers’ Championship in the 2016 ELMS, will be given a test in LMP2 in the Manor Motorsport team’s Oreca 05-Nissan in Bahrain in the Rookie tests on Sunday 20th November on the Bahrain International circuit the day after the final round of the 2016 FIA WEC. It is the prize promised to the winning LMP3 drivers in the ELMS.
The prize promised to the drivers winning the LMP3 Drivers’ Championship in the 2016 ELMS is a test in LMP2. It’s a strong signal of intent and provides a great opportunity to be assessed by a team engaged in FIA WEC.
British team Manor Motorsport is giving Alex Brundle, Christian England and Mike Guasch, the opportunity to do the test in its two Oreca 05-Nissans. The three drivers will run the cars on the Bahrain circuit and learn how to drive them and supply Manor with enough information to evaluate their progress.
The winning team in the ELMS LMP3 team’s championship, United Autosports, has been given an invitation for the 2017 Le Mans 24 Hours in LMP2 provided it is entered for one of the ACO endurance series. It’s an exceptional prize because of the number of potential entrants in this category.
