The Inter Europol Competition team is happy to announce that Sam Dejonghe (BEL) will join Paul Scheuschner on the #14 Ligier LMP3 for the rest of the European Le Mans Series races.
The quick 27-year old Belgian driver has a varied background, from karting, GT3, GT4, Formula Renault 2.0 and F3 to being the development driver of the Mahindra Racing team in the FIA Formula E.
He will share the LMP3 with Paul Scheuschner. Scheuschner has been with the team for three years and has become a good and fast gentleman driver.
Sam Dejonghe: “I am happy to be back in the paddock, and to do so with a team like Inter Europol Competition. I love my role with the Mahindra team, where I spend most of my time doing development and in the simulator, but am aware that I need to race to keep my competitive edge, and the ELMS feels like the perfect environment for my ambition to climb up the prototype ladder. The LMP3 is a very good-looking car, and I can’t wait to get my hands on it!”
Sascha Fassbender(Team Manager): “We are very happy to have Sam with us. We think he will be able to work well together with Paul Scheuschner. Sam has a lot of experience specially in the single seater and that for sure will help him settle in the car really quickly.”
