Greaves Motorsport will be running a full championship entry to the FIA World Endurance Championship in 2013 with their Zytek Z11SN – Nissan LMP2 car lead by German Christian Zugel.
For the 24 Hours of Le Mans jewel-in-the-crown event the team have a double entry in the 22-car LMP2 field with Tom Kimber-Smith leading the assault in the second car.
“The whole team is very excited to have been honoured by the ACO and the FIA WEC with the invitations to Le Mans and the World Championship.” Said Team Manager Jacob Greaves.
“We take this as a vote of confidence in us a team and to our commitment to endurance sportscar racing. We have invested heavily in several aspects of our business in the past twelve months and will be looking to run at the head of the field. Even in these difficult economic times the ACO and FIA WEC have assembled a very strong grid, for which they should be congratulated. We are proud to be part of this resurgence of endurance racing.”
The Greaves Motorsport team will be looking to repeat their 2011 class victory at the 24 hour event.
“It is very satisfying to receive an additional invite to the Le Mans 24 Hours to go with the invite that comes with our FIA World Endurance Championship entry” said Tim Greaves, Team Principal.
“We are still in discussions with a number of drivers regarding all aspects of our programme for 2013 but nothing is certain till contracts are signed. We are still open to approaches from any other interested parties as now we have a guaranteed six seats at Le Mans.”
