Inter Europol revealed their new, but similar, livery for 2020 yesterday during a testing session at Spain’s Barcelona circuit.
Along with the good news of the new livery comes some that is not so positive that due to ongoing travel restrictions and the economic outfall of the COVID-19 pandemic the team will withdraw two of their planned four car ELMS entries; one each in the LMP2 and LMP3 categories.
Sascha Fassbender (team manager) says: “We had drivers signed for the cars but because of the severe travel restrictions in this Covid-19 time, and the return to racing slightly too early in the slow opening of the economies, drivers saw no possibilities to honour their contracts, simply because they could not travel.
“We also tried very hard to get our third driver on the #13, the American Austin McCusker, over to Europe, but to no avail.
“So it is Martin Hippe and Nigel Moore driving the #13 LMP3 and Kuba Smiechowski, Rene Binder and Matevos Isaakyan in the #34 LMP2 in the European Le Mans series 2020 season.
“In the meantime we are still doing all things possible to have the #33 and/or the #14 back on track.”
We wish all the team the best of luck and think the new livery looks pretty cool, enjoy!
