Italian endurance squad Eurointernational has confirmed its entry for the 2015/2016 Asian Le Mans Series with the new Ligier JS P3 chassis.
Former Renault Formula 1 tester Giorgio Mondini is the first driver to be confirmed for the team’s two car effort, which will compete in the LMP3 class.
The Asian Le Mans Series will provide Eurointernational with an opportunity to achieve its wider vision of competing at next year’s 24 Hours of Le Mans.
Eurointernational last competed at Le Mans in 1995 with a Ferrari 333SP, driven by Massimo Sigala, Jay Cochran and René Arnoux.
The team will also field a Ligier JS 53 Evo II in the Italian Sports-Prototype Championship, alongside sporadic appearances in the VdeV Endurance Series.
“I’m very happy to be associated again with Giorgio Mondini, and I’m also very pleased to be working again with a manufacturer, Ligier, through Onroak Automotive,” said team owner Antonio Ferrari.
“For us it’s a challenging project to come back into endurance, and it’s especially exciting with this new car and the new LMP3 category. Our main goal is to win the Italian Championship with the Ligier JS 53 Evo II, and the Asian Le Mans Series with the Ligier JS P3! My dream is to be back in Le Mans next year.”
Eurointernational will begin its Asian Le Mans Series campaign at the 2 Hours of Fuji on October 10, in support of the sixth round of the FIA World Endurance Championship.
