Greaves Motorsport (formerly Team Bruichladdich) continues to prepare their 2011 programme, with the announcement of its third driver Thor-Christian Ebbesvik and the arrival of a new partner, Motul.
Already team-mates with Karim Ojjeh and Tim Greaves in Le Mans Series in 2010, the Norwegian was impressively fast, particularly at Spa, Silverstone and Portimao. Injured during the 1000 km of Spa and suffering a fractured vertebra, he could not race in the 24 Hours of Le Mans. He was replaced by Gary Chalandon, who now becomes his partner along with Karim Ojjeh.
They will compete in the 2011 Le Mans Series season with a Nissan powered Zytek, but only Karim Ojjeh and Gary Chalandon are currently confirmed for the 24 Hours of Le Mans. There will therefore be a place to fill within Greaves Motorsports for the great event of the La Sarthe.
