Ricky Taylor joins Keating Motorsports' (Riley) driver line-up for the 24 Hours of Le Mans

Keating Motorsports' driver line-up for the #43 Riley MK 30, entered in the LM P2 class, is now complete for this year's 24 Hours of Le Mans (June 17th and 18th). The team has called upon Ricky Taylor to join Ben Keating (two participations in the 24 Hours) and Jeroen Bleekemolen (11 editions) who had already been announced.

The American driver will take the start at his fourth 24 Hours this year. In his first participation in Le Mans (2013), with the French team Larbre Compétition, he finished fifth in the LM GTE Am class with Julien Canal and Patrick Bornhauser at the wheel of a Corvette C6.R. The following year, he drove a Morgan LM P2-Judd, still with the French team (ninth in LM P2). His third time was last June with a seventh place finish in the LM GTE Pro class at the wheel of the #63 official Corvette C7.R along with Jan Magnussen and Antonio Garcia. This year, Ricky Taylor won the Rolex 24 at Daytona with his brother, Jordan, as well as Max Angelelli and legendary NASCAR driver Jeff Gordon.

The Riley MK30 (LM P2) the three men will race at Le Mans will make its first appearance in Europe in June.
