Reigning European Le Mans Champions Greaves Motorsport have today announced that Polish single-seater star Kuba Giermaziak join Memo Rojas and Julien Canal in the team’s Nissan-powered Ligier JS P2 chassis for the Le Mans 24 Hours and the six rounds of the 2016 European Le Mans Series.
“It will be absolutely amazing to drive for Greaves Motorsport in the European Le Mans Series and 24 Hours of Le Mans” said Giermaziak. “It’s a dream come true for me, as driving prototypes was something I wanted to do since I was a little kid.
We have everything we need to fight for the championship, with a great team behind us, and Memo and Julien to share the cockpit with. They are both fantastic drivers and I’m sure that we can all learn from each other.”
The young Pole brings extensive experience in single-seater competition and the Porsche SuperCup where in 2014 he was just pipped for the title by current Porsche factory driver and 2015 Le Mans winner, Earl Bamber.
“This is the final piece in the jigsaw for 2016. We are really excited to secure Kuba to drive our car. He has shown real pace during our pre-season test program combined with excellent feedback on the engineering side. More importantly he has fitted right in with Memo, Julien and the guys on the team, there is a really good chemistry developing.” added Jacob Greaves, Team Principal of Greaves Motorsport.
“We are all motivated to match, and even exceed, our performance of 2015, we want to be Champions again. Given the strength of our opposition that is a tall order, but we have the team, the car and, most importantly, the drivers to achieve this goal.”
