Newbridge Motorsport and United Autosports will both be joining the European Le Mans Series (ELMS) LMP3 grid in 2016.
Based in Milton Keynes, UK, Newbridge Motorsport has a rich history of first-class levels of preparation and superb ‘arrive-and-drive’ offerings and has recently begun looking for drivers for its 2016 full-season ELMS LMP3 assault. It is understood that the team will use the Ginetta-Nissan package.
Anglo-American team United Autosports has also announced that they will be mounting a two-car entry in the 2016 ELMS. As with Newbridge, the team will us the Ginetta-Nissan chassis.
Based in Leeds, and created in 2009 by Zak Brown and Richard Dean, United Autosports already has two Ginetta chassis on order and expect to take delivery of the first car next month. Once the car arrives the team will undertake a concerted test programme this summer before contesting the final round of this year’s ELMS at Estoril in October. The ELMS entry is seen by United Autosports as the first step in their ultimate goal to contest the Le Mans 24 Hours.
