LMP2 squad KCMG has its sights set on a hat-trick of World Endurance Championship race wins after claiming glory at Le Mans and the Nurburgring.

The Hong Kong squad welcomes back Nicolas Lapierre after he made his WTCC debut at Motegi in Japan last weekend and returns to complete the same driver line-up which won at Le Mans 24 Hours in June. Lapierre continues to act as stand in for Nick Tandy who is competing for Porsche in the TUDOR United SportsCar Championship penultimate round in Austin.

The French driver is delighted to once again team up with Matt Howson and Richard Bradley for KCMG at the circuit which hosted the LMP2 squad's maiden WEC victory 12 months ago.
