Algarve Pro Racing pick up Le Mans entry spot

Portuguese squad Algarve Pro Racing's #25 Ligier JS P2-Nissan has gained entry into this year's Le Mans 24 Hours race after two teams withdrew their respective entries.

The #59 Aston Martin Vantage V8 entered by TDS Racing in LM GTE-Am class has opted out of the prestigious endurance event while the first reserve team Greaves Motorsport has pulled out its #45 Gibson 015S-Nissan, having also opted out of defending its European Le Mans Series crown in 2016.

Algarve Pro Racing, who had been second on the reserve list, is therefore promoted to the official entry list and will compete at the Circuit de la Sarthe on 18-19 June.

The #25 Ligier JS P2-Nissan, second in the 2015/2016 Asian Le Mans Series and 12th in the 2015 European Le Mans Series, will also compete in both these series in 2016 and for Le Mans 24 Hours the first nominated driver is Michael Munemann.

Elsewhere, there has been two more withdrawals from the reserve list with #53 Riley Motorsports' SRT Viper GTS-R and the #87 Proton Competition's Porsche 911 RSR turning down the invitation. The reserve list now consists of 6 teams, four LM P2s and two LM GTEs. They will be allowed to race in keeping with the order of the list depending on further withdrawals.
