24 Hours of Le Mans - CEFC TRSM Racing team finalized with the arrival of Oliver Turvey
Two Ginetta G60-LT-P1s will be fielded in the 2018-2019 Super Season of the World Endurance Championship (FIA WEC) and the 24 Hours of Le Mans (June 16-17) by CEFC TRSM Racing. With five drivers already previously announced, the team has now revealed the name of its last driver: Oliver Turvey, winner at the 24 Hours of Le Mans in LMP2 in 2014.
The Manor team, newly christened CEFC TRSM Racing, will compete in the 2018-2019 WEC Super Season including the 24 Hours of Le Mans with its two Ginetta G60-LT-P1s. The driver line-up for the #5 car was already completed with Léo Roussel, Charlie Robertson and Dean Stoneman. For the #6, only Oliver Rowland and Alex Brundle had been announced. It has now been confirmed they will be joined by Oliver Turvey, participating in his fourth 24 Hours of Le Mans. He also won the LMP2 class at the 2014 edition at the wheel of Jota Sport's Zytek Z11SN-Nissan (with Simon Dolan and Harry Tincknell). The British driver is currently competing in Formula E.
Oliver Turvey: "It is great to have another big talent in our driver line up with the addition of Oliver. He has vast experience in sports cars including three 24 Hours of Le Mans which is, of course, beneficial for us. We are very happy and confident with our completed driver line up and we have been working hard since the Prologue to ensure that we are in the best possible shape for the first race at Spa in a few weeks time. Although it will be a big challenge for all of the new LMP1-NH teams, we are now just keen to go racing!"
