Greaves Motorsport have revealed the livery their Zytek-Nissan will carry at the 24 Hours of Le Mans later this month.

The British team is now partnered with Caterham Motorsport, thus the LMP2 challenger now carries the corporate colours of Caterham – green and yellow. The link with Caterham also brings GP2 driver Alexander Rossi, who races for the team’s outfit in the series, to join Tom KimberSmith and Eric Lux in the driving line-up for the team .

Following a systems shakedown test the team’s next step is the official 24 Hours of Le Mans test day this weekend, with the race itself a fortnight further into the future (June 22-23).

The partnership with Caterham Motorsport is an exciting new development for Greaves Motorsport,” said team manager Jacob Greaves. “It will certainly make the whole package stronger and more competitive. We have the team, the car and the drivers to succeed and we know what it takes to win in Le Mans. We are looking forward to the next few weeks in France.”

The race as well as being the 90th anniversary for the endurance classic is also Greaves’ 50th ACO rules international race. In that time the team has taken 11 podium finishes and has won the Le Mans Series in 2011, a season that also included class victory at Le Mans with a team including Kimber-Smith.
