Visser & Floersch For Le Castellet 240

With Richard Mille Racing

Beitske Visser will join Sophia Floersch aboard the #50 Richard Mille Racing Oreca 07 Gibson LMP2 for this weekend’s Le Castellet 240, round three of the 2020 European Le Mans Series.

The all-female duo is the latest line-up for the FIA Women in Motorsport-backed outfit after their full-season plans were disrupted by the accident that befell Katherine Legge in practice for the opening round at Paul Ricard.

That saw Tatiana Calderon joined by Andre Negrao, the Signatech driver an emergency stand-in.

Spa two weeks ago saw Calderon and Negrao joined by 2019 W-Series runner-up Visser for her LMP2 debut with Floersch missing both races due to FIA F3 commitments.

The return to Le Castellet then sees the team find an all-female squad in a race for the first time with Floersch’s recent social media posts indicating strongly that the race this weekend is seen as preparation for both drivers for Le Mans, most likely with Calderon who is absent this weekend on Super Formula duties in Japan.
