Inter Europol Competition finalise Michelin Le Mans Cup driver lineups

6 March 2024

Inter Europol Competition is set to embark on its second season in the Michelin Le Mans Cup with an all-new driver lineup for the 2024 season.

As previously confirmed, Rik Koen (S) and Alex Bukhantsov (B) pair up in the #34 LMP3 Ligier, while we are happy to announce that Sebastian Gravlund (S) and Tim Creswick (B) will race the #43 JS P320.

Sebastian first competed with the team in the Prototype Winter Series in Portimao, where he raced alongside European Le Mans Series signing Pedro Perino.

With a second-place finish to his credit already, he aims to build on his Formula 4 campaigns in his native Denmark, Spain and most recently the Europcup-3 championship.

While prototype competition is new to Sebastian, he is looking forward to the challenge.

“I’m very excited to join Inter Europol Competition for the 2024 Michelin Le Mans Cup,” Sebastian stated. “I’ve gained a lot of experience from single-seaters, and now was the right time for me to step into sportscars. It’s a very exciting moment in my career.

“After I had my first outing in a LMP3 car, I was sold,” he continued. “Further, it’s a very professional team who’s showing great results in international sportscar racing, so I’m happy for the trust they’ve shown me. I can’t wait to get behind the wheel. It will be exciting to share the car with Tim Creswick, and I’m sure we are set well for success.”

Tim joins Inter Europol Competition off the back of a very impressive campaign in Le Mans Cup last year at the wheel of his distinctive HCR Porsche 911 GT3 R. The British driver finished second at both the Road to Le Mans and Motorland Aragon, en route to third in the championship.

Having tested the LMP3 Ligier following the season finale in Portimao, he is keen to continue his Le Mans Cup campaign in prototypes.

“I’m excited for the 2024 season with Inter Europol Competition and Sebastian,” Tim said. “I had a great campaign in GT3 in Le Mans Cup last year, so I’ve had a chance to learn the championship. Jumping into the green and yellow LMP3 last year for a test was a lot of fun – I’m really glad we were able to make this programme happen.”

The team has numerous tests planned ahead of the season-opening round in Barcelona in April. The Road to Le Mans takes place in June and the season concludes at Portimao in October.
