Nico Pino (Asian and European Le Mans Series): “I am extremelly happy to continue with Inter Europol Competition for both Asian Le Mans Series and the ELMS. We had a good connection last year in the last tworaces of the season and for me, the target in 2022 is very clear. We want to fight for the title in both series. I know the level of competition is very high but I also believe we have the right team and the right package to go and fight for it! Asia will be good to get good mileage before the European season starts!”
James Dayson (Asian and European Le Mans Series): “I am beyond excited to get back in the seat for the 2022 season. I’m looking forward to running with Inter Europol Competition team in the ALMS and ELMS this year. My progress over the last number of years in the ELMS has been something I’m proud of and I am eager to keep that upward trend going. I am here to compete at the highest level in LMP3 and the team is a top-class team that has a strong work ethic and high goals that align with me. I know I have my work cut out for me if we want to be competing for wins and the championship and I’m ready for the challenge that lies ahead of me.”
Guilherme Oliveira (Asian Le Mans Series): “I am very happy and grateful to Inter Europol Competition for this opportunity. After stepping from go-karting to my F4 debut season last year I now feel that I am ready for this big challenge and the Asia Le Mans Series is the best way to kick of the season! My main objective is to develop myself as a driver and help the team as much as possible to achieve a good result!”
Charles Crews (European Le Mans Series): “I am extremely pleased to be joining Inter Europol Competition. We are entering the season with one goal in mind: to win the ELMS championship. This will be my third season of ELMS, and I believe that I have become well acquainted with the series and circuits, for me it’s finally an opportunity to have an uncompromised driver lineup that can compete for victories in every event, and for that, I am very excited.”
Sascha Fassbender (team manager): “We return to the Asian Le Mans Series with two quick young drivers, Nico and Guilherme, who will share the car with the experienced and equally quick James Dayson. We believe we have an excellent chance to be on the podium with this crew. We see a definite advantage for the European Le Mans Series in that Nico and James get a lot of time in the car in Asia.”
