RLR Msport have confirmed the news that we’ve been waiting for for a little while that they will be adding an LMP2 programme to their existing LMP3 commitments next season.
The Bolton-based team are entering into a new partnership with Dalveen Enterprises, a company controlled by Ross Warburton, who has signed a contract with Onroak to purchase a new LMP2 Ligier JS P217.
The new car will be run by RLR in the 2017 European Le Mans Series along with other selected events, further details to follow.
The new P2 program will run alongside RLR’s existing two car Ligier LMP3 program in partnership with Mike Smith Motorsport.
RLR have previously run LMP2 cars in the ELMS with an ex RML Lola in 2010/11 and were involved to with the first year of Murphy Prototypes action with their Oreca 03 in 2012.
