Target: Top Three

The third race of the European Le Mans Series takes place this coming Sunday (6 June) in the south of France at the circuit of Le Castellet. The only driver change from the last race at the Red Bull Ring race is that Julius Adomavicius (LIT) is back in the #14 Ligier LMP3. He, once again, shares the car with Italian motorbike driver Mattia Pasini and young Polish Mateusz Kaprzyk. In the Ligier LMP3 #13 the two Belgian friends Ugo de Wilde and Ulysse De Pauw are paired with the experienced Martin Hippe. The target for the weekend: top three for both cars. In the championship, the #13 Ligier LMP3 is in second place and the #14 seventh.

 

Ulysse De Pauw: “It is very good to be back with the team for another race. I enjoyed racing at the Red Bull Ring. I am confident that with the line-up we have, we can do even better here. For myself, I am sure I can improve a lot from the last race. I hope the weather will be a bit more consistent here and if we have a clean race, I am sure we can win.”

 

Ugo de Wilde: “I cannot wait to get back on track. I think we had a good debriefing at the Red Bull Ring, and I am sure we can achieve a good result and score more points for the championship. I never raced this configuration with the long straight, so I can’t wait to discover what it is like.  Looking forward to adding more positive memories of this track.”

 

Martin Hippe: “It is nice to be back at Paul Ricard and after a good start of the season, we are now in second place in the championship.  This race, the target is to get as many points as possible so we can get a bit closer to number one.”
