Greaves Motorsport Withdraws From Red Bull Ring

nissan-banner-600-03

Greaves Motorsport has been forced to withdraw its entry from this weekend’s ELMS round at the Red Bull Ring in Austria following an unexpected loss of sponsorship, as Team Manager Jacob Greaves explains:

“This is really unfortunate as we were looking to build on our good results last month at the Le Mans 24 Hours. We as a team strongly support the European Le Mans Series but a late change of plans from one of our sponsors meant that we had no choice but to withdraw.”
