Despite being named in the 10-team roster for the upcoming campaign in November, Racing Engineering has dropped out of Formula 2 after 13 years. The 2018 season will see the Spanish outfit compete in the European Le Mans Series starting with testing at Le Castellet on April 10
Racing Engineering has detailed plans to race in the 2018 European Le Mans Series (ELMS). The Spanish team will be moving to the Sports Car series after competing in the FIA Formula Two Championship and its predecessor, the GP2 Series, since 2005, in that time winning 27 races as well as the GP2 Drivers’ Championship in 2008 with Giorgio Pantano and 2013 with Fabio Leimer.
The European Le Mans Series was relaunched in 2013 and in the five seasons since, it has featured exciting sports car racing at such famous tracks as Monza, Silverstone and Spa-Francorchamps.
In this time, it has attracted some of the best teams and drivers with, as of last year, thirty-five cars racing across the LMP2, LMP3 and LMGTE classes that make up the Series.
