Veteran British racer Anthony Reid will race with Murphy Prototypes team in the LMP3 class of the European Le Mans Series this weekend at Silverstone.

The fifty-eight-year-old former British Touring Car Championship racer has stepped into the seat vacated by American Doug Peterson, who has been forced to withdraw due to illness.

Reid will now race the team’s Ginetta-Nissan LMP3 car alongside Tony Ave and Michael Cullen, having been called up in between the first and second practice sessions.

Speaking to Autosport after being announced in the ride, Reid insists he has no qualms about stepping into a prototype car for the first time since the 2002 24 Hours of Le Mans.

“I’m driving so much different stuff these days and jumping from car to car, so it shouldn’t be a problem,” said Reid. “I was walking down the pitlane when I ran into Hugh, who asked if I had my kit and licence with me.

“I said yes and the next minute I was pootling out of the pits in an LMP3 car. I actually lied about having my kit with me, but I managed to borrow some.”
