Roberto Merhi will replace Will Stevens and join Matt Rao and Tor Graves in car 44 for the 24 Hours of Le Mans.

Having only one car entered for the 24 Hours of Le Mans instead of the team’s usual two cars entered in all other rounds of the FIA World Endurance Championship, deciding upon a driver line-up for the iconic Le Mans race was always going to be a challenge. With vital points available for the driver’s World Championship the Team have worked hard to ensure that its drivers have every opportunity to compete in the race.

John Booth, Team Principal

“We are looking forward to our first Le Mans and excited with our driver line up.

Roberto and Matt have already shown they are a great partnership, achieving a podium finish in the Team’s second ever sports car race and we are sure that Tor will add to this already familiar partnership."

Roberto Merhi, Driver

“I am very excited to be taking part in this great race that has so much history. I am really looking forward to racing with Matt and Tor and seeing what we can achieve together.

I would like to thank the team for this amazing opportunity."
