The trio Krohn-Jönsson-Bertolini returns to Le Mans, but in LMP2 with Eurasia Motorsport

Drivers of DH Racing's Ferrari 488 GTE in the LMGTE Am class at the 24 Hours of Le Mans last year, Tracy Krohn, Niclas Jönsson and Andrea Bertolini will once again join forces at the race this year, but in LMP2, at the wheel of Eurasia Motorsport's Ligier JS P217.

Tracy Krohn, a Texas oil tycoon, and Swedish driver Niclas Jönsson will take the start at the 24 Hours of Le Mans together for the 13th time, but only the second outing in the LMP2 class, the other was in 2016. Thirteenth in the class with a Ligier JS P2, supported by Joaõ Barbosa, the duo competed in LMGTE Am last year along with Andrea Bertolini, finishing 13th.

Though the Swedish-American pair representing Krohn Racing, whose blue and green Ferrari 488 GTE is sixth on the reserve list, has already participated in the LMP2 class, it will be a new endeavor at Le Mans for the Italian driver, winner in LMGTE Am in 2015 with the Russian team SMP Racing.

After an impressive fifth place finish in LMP2 in 2016 for its very first appearance at the 24 Hours of Le Mans, Eurasia Motorsport - a competitor in the Asian Le Mans Series - had to settle for 13th place last year with father and son Nicolet and Erik Maris.
