Onroak have confirmed that Steve Donovan of Counter Solutions has purchased a new Ligier JS P3 with the intention of YIL Engineering running it in 2016.
Although full details of the programme are yet to be confirmed, the car is likely to race in the VdeV Endurance Series as well as various British endurance series. Entering the ELMS is also a possibility.
Donovan will share the car with Richard Bernans, who has plenty of VdeV experience.
“Counter Solutions ordered a Ligier JS P3 car because of the outstanding quality of the whole car and the benefits the JS P3 car has gained from the knowledge gathered within Ligier / Onroak Automotive on the LMP2 project,” said Donovan. “For me, this made it the only real LMP3 car to consider.”
Other JS P3 buyers include French teams Graff, Extreme Limite and Italian squad Eurointernational.
