Speedworks Add 24H Proto & Michelin Le Mans Cup Efforts To UK LMP3 Cup For 2018

Extensive testing planned

Speedworks are to add a Michelin Le Mans Cup campaign, together with an entry in the 3 x 3 hour Prototype races at Dubai on 5-7 January, to their season plans which include a return to the Bute Motorsport-run LMP3 Cup with their Ligier JS P3 LMP3 car.

Jack Butel is confirmed for Dubai with other seats still available.

Speedworks’ first season in LMP3 saw Butel score third at Spa and second at Snetterton, with Scott Mansell and Devon Modell respectively, before solo success in the rain at Donington Park.

In addition to the team’s race plans, Speedworks has two exclusive test days planned in Portimao to evaluate drivers for its 2018 plans, with track time booked on 10th -13th February and 2nd – 7th March.

And the team’s Pro-Sim race simulator can be configured for the Ligier, sessions will be run for drivers at its Cheshire base for familiarisation ahead of the tests.

“2017 was our first season with this type of car and I think that the progression we made in terms of performance throughout the season was clear to see, culminating in Jack’s win at Donington Park for the finale,” said Team Principal Christian Dick.

“The Dubai 3x3H races give us an excellent chance to continue that progression. When you consider the pre-season testing programme we have lined up in Portimao in February and March, we will be in great shape for the 2018 season in both LMP3 Cup and Michelin Le Mans Cup.”
