Following the withdrawl of another competitor Murphy Prototype Racing has been elevated to the field for this year’s 24 Hours of Le Mans (June 16-17) as one of 56 cars competing in the famous endurance race. It will be the team’s first start at the Circuit de la Sarthe.

Team founder Greg Murphy, a green energy entrepreneur was delighted to be involved after the team made its European Le Mans debut in the first race of the season at Le Castellet in France.

He said: “We're absolutely delighted to be taking part in this year's Le Mans 24 hours race and it is an honour that we will be there. This is only our first season in the European Le Mans but we've already shown that we can compete and challenge the best of them and that's exactly what will be required from us in the Le Mans 24 hour.”

“We'll have a lot of time over there to test the car and get ourselves fully prepared for the race.”

“This will be a new challenge for Murphy Prototype Racing but it is one we're ready for and we are thrilled that we will be competing.”
