Fittipaldi, Heinemeier Hansson and Scherer to share the Inter Europol Competition LMP2 in the European Le Mans Series

The Inter Europol Competition team is proud to announce that Haas F1 team reserve and test driver Pietro Fittipaldi (BRA), Le Mans class-winning driver David Heinemeier Hansson (DEN) and Fabio Scherer (CHE), ex- DTM and two time top podium finisher in the WEC LMP2 class, will share their Oreca 07 LMP2 in the 2022 season of the European Le Mans Series. The team also runs two LMP3 in the championship.

 

Pietro Fittipaldi: “I am excited to be racing for Inter Europol Competition in the ELMS championship. Together with David and Fabio, we have a strong line-up to be fighting at the front with the aim of winning the championship. I will also continue as reserve and test driver for the Haas F1 team so it is going to be a busy season, but I am very much looking forward to it.”

 

David Heinemeier Hansson: “Thrilled to get back into LMP2 after a bit of a break. We have a strong team with Inter Europol Competition to fight for the ELMS championship. After driving IMSA and WEC seasons for many years, I’m excited to compete in a series where we’ll be driving for overall wins in the LMP2 class.”

 

Fabio Scherer: “With the line-up we have a solid base and a good potential to go for podium places and do very well in the championship. ”

 

Sascha Fassbender (team manager): “A warm welcome to Pietro, David and Fabio. For us, entering the LMP2 in the ELMS was the logical next step. We now have three very good drivers under contract and look forward to play a strong role in the LMP2 field. We would also like to take part in the 24 Hours of Le Mans with a second car. We are obviously keeping our fingers crossed for this.”
