Team Bruichladdich Become Greaves Motorsport

After being a fixture on grids in both the Le Mans Series and Le Mans 24 Hours of recent years the Team Bruichladdich name will be absent in 2011, as the team become Greaves Motorsport.

The team will return for the 2011 Le Mans Series, continuing to field a Ginetta-Zytek in the LMP2, but with a Nissan engine under the new rules for the class in 2011. The team, under the Bruichladdich banner, competed at Le Mans in 2010 with drivers Tim Greaves, Karim Ojjeh and Gary Chalandon, finishing tenth overall.

Ojjeh and Chalandon have already been confirmed for the team in 2011, but a third driver is yet to be named, as Greaves seemingly eyes a more hands off role within his team.

The team previously entered a Radical in both the LMS and Le Mans 24 Hours, before switching to the Ginetta last year, enjoying a successful season including scoring a class podium in the round at the Algarve.
