So24! By Lombard Racing firms up ELMS roster


LMP2 outfit So24! By Lombard Racing has completed its driver lineup for the 2016 European Le Mans Series.

Vincent Capillaire and Olivier Lombard will be joined by Jonathan Coleman in the Judd-powered #22 Ligier JS P2 at all six rounds this season. The trio will also contest the 24 Hours of Le Mans.

Capillaire, So24!’s initial nominated driver at the ACO  press conference, will move back to the ELMS after completing a season in the FIA World Endurance Championship with Signatech Alpine.

Lombard, meanwhile, is back in LMP2 after making sporadic appearances with Bentley in the Blancpain Sprint Series. The 2011 Le Mans LMP2 class winner will make his ELMS prototype debut in 2016.

Coleman is the latest driver to be announced for the all-new campaign, having raced occasionally in the ELMS last season with Pegasus Racing in LMP2. The 33 year old from Somerset will make his 24 Hours of Le Mans debut this year.

So24! By Lombard Racing will begin its ELMS campaign at the official pre-season Paul Ricard test on March 22-23.
