Tequila Patrón Livery Returns for ESM

1 Mins read

LMP2 contender Extreme Speed Motorsports is reunited with its famous green and black Tequila Patrón livery for the return of the 2015 FIA World Endurance Championship at the 6 Hours of Nurburgring.

The #30 Ligier JS P2 is driven by Scott Sharp, Ryan Dalziel, David Heinemeier Hansson, whilst the sister #31 car has Ed Brown, Johannes van Overbeek and Jon Fogarty behind the wheel.

Both Dalziel and Fogarty have opted to enter the WEC round instead of the penultimate Pirelli World Challenge round, where Dalziel is leading the championship.

At Le Mans, both cars finished in the top 10, and so the Florida-based team is looking for even stronger results in Germany.

“This is the first time Tequila Patrón ESM enters a WEC race weekend feeling completely prepared and on a level playing field with the other P2 competitors,” said Scott Sharp. 

“We’re back to our black and Patrón green colors of Tequila Patrón, in the second most popular tequila market in world – there isn’t a better place to go for two podiums!”

“We had a really good couple days testing at Nürburgring and I have to say the track is awesome,” added Ryan Dalziel. “Traffic will be interesting because many parts of the track are pretty narrow, so hopefully some patience on their side so we can get through unscathed.”
