GRAFF Confirm ELMS Entries in LMP2 and LMP3

Laurent for full-season LMP2 effort, Ligier its the nod for LMP3

GRAFF will be looking to return to their ELMS LMP2 race winning form of 2017 this coming season with Thomas Laurent joining the driver line up aboard their returning #39 ORECA 07 Gibson.

The Toyota Gazoo Racing Reserve driver then adds an ELMS programme to his continuing commitment with Signatech Alpine in the current FIA WEC season.

Alexandre Cougnaud will return to the fray with the team and James Allen rejoins the team having raced in the team’s #40 ORECA in 2018 before a season with DragonSpeed in 2019.

The team will again race on Michelin rubber.

The team has also submitted an entry in LMP3 with a new Ligier JS P320, this after GRAFF made a gradual but eventually near total switch from Ligier to Norma in both ELMS and Michelin Le Mans Cup in recent seasons.

Arnold and Maxime Robin will be joined by Vincent Capillaire in the Ligier.

Greg Wheeler returns for a second season as technical director.

GRAFF have also confirmed that they will also submit an entry for the 24 Hours of Le Mans in LMP2 (though Laurent is understood to be committed with Signatech) with further announcements to follow for the outfit’s Ultimate Cup Series and Michelin Le Mans Cup LMP3 efforts.
