West-Tec enters Formula Le Mans

Having recently revealed it will move into the British F3 International Series for 2009, Team West-Tec has added another new programme to its resume by announcing an entry into the inaugural Formula Le Mans series for the season ahead.

The ACO-backed series will support the majority of the Le Mans Series and will also race at the Le Mans 24 Hours, with a separate three-hour endurance race at the end of the season in October.

The team will head to Paul Ricard later this month to test the ORECA-built chassis before taking delivery of its own cars, with the move into the series being viewed as a natural step for the team due to the past sportscar experience of a number of team members.

“We have the resources and facilities to work with a prototype campaign and this will fit nicely alongside the existing team commitments in Formula 3 and Speedcar,” joint team principal John Miller said. “We are going down to Paul Ricard with drivers to test, although we are still wishing to speak to more potential pilots who are interested in the new Formula.

“The car is stunning and is built to true LMP2 spec. It will offer tremendous bang for buck for performance compared to running budget.”
