Paul Loup Chatin Replaces Giedo Van Der Garde For Monza

COVID 19 positive result for Racing Team Nederland star

Racing Team Nederland have seen their second COVID 19 reshuffle in under a week as Paul Loup Chatin is set to join Frits van Eerd and Nyck de Vries in the #29 Oreca Gibson for this weekend’s 6 Hours of Monza.

The latest move comes after Giedo van der Garde reported testing positive for COVID 19.

That follows the elimination from the car for this weekend of Job van Uitert who tests positive before last weekend’s ELMS race, also held at Monza.

Van der Garde reports that he is fully vaccinated.

Final confirmation is awaited from the FIA WEC on the status of the entry after United Autosport were effectively excluded from the ELMS race last weekend in the wake of van Uitert’s positive test result. (Update – The #29 is understood to have been cleared to race with the revised driver squad).
