Jean-Eric Vergne Replaces Loic Duval For 6 Hours of Fuji

DTM clash opens door for Spa 6 Hours winner with TDS

Jean-Eric Vergne will race in the #28 TDS Racing Oreca 07 alongside full-season drivers Francois Perrodo and Matthieu Vaxiviere at next month’s 6 Hours of Fuji.

The reigning Formula E Driver’s Champion replaces Loic Duval who will race for Audi at the DTM season finale at Hockenheim on the same weekend.

Vergne already has an LMP2 win in the WEC this season after his full-season ELMS car, the #26 G-Drive Racing Oreca (also prepared by TDS) won on an invitational entry to the Spa 6 Hours. He also featured heavily in the class win on the road for the team at Le Mans, later excluded for fuel rig anomalies, an issue which is subject to an FIA Court of Appeal later this month.
