The team currently has a rented Ligier JS P3, which is in its workshop being prepared for an entry to the Gulf 12 Hours in Abu Dhabi this December.
“Our two Porsche Caymans are committed to Cota 24 and Dubai 24 so that has left me looking for something to do our regular GULF 12 Hour event with. My idea of acquiring an LMP3 for the event has come good,” Braybrook told DSC.
“We’re going to use the Gulf 12 Hours as an LMP3 learning curve, and run in the Michelin Le Mans Cup, as we already have one driver confirmed. The Le Mans Cup is where everyone wants to be. We’d love to do ELMS, or Asian Le Mans Series in the future, after racing in the ALMS with Vipers in the past.”
“We’ll look at racing in British LMP3 Cup too, depending on the dates, and whether or not we can find drivers and make it commercially viable. We’re also looking at taking on a second car.”
In addition to that, Braybrook explained that he’s also evaluating a run at Bathurst again in 2018, as it did this year in the GT4 class. “With the Caymans at Dubai we are looking at running Porsche 911 GT3 Cup cars in next year’s endurance classic”
