The young (born on 12-3-2002) Austrian driver Lukas Dunner will join Kuba Smiechowski and Adrien Tambay for the European Le Mans Series at Silverstone on the 31stof August in the #34 Ligier LMP2 of the Inter Europol Competition team. It will be his first race in an LMP2.
Lukas Dunner: “At the end of August, on the 31st, I will have my debut in a LMP2 car with just 17 years. I can’t say how excited I am; a superfast race car and a new chapter in my career. The Inter Europol Competition team was looking for a driver for their LMP2 to complete their driver line-up for the 4H of Silverstone in the European Le Mans Series. I guess my results in the LMP3 with Wimmer Werk so far, made them think, I could be the right one. I will give my everything to proof them right. This is another very important step on my personal road to Le Mans.”
Sascha Fassbender (team manager): “We are very happy to welcome Lukas to our team. He already proved his speed in the LMP3 at a young age and was the first choice for us. We are happy to have a young talent in our team and will give him the necessary support. Last year the Ligier was the dominant car at Silverstone and we want to build on our strong performance in Barcelona. For this we have the right driver pairing ready with Kuba, Adrien and Lukas.”
