Scuderia Villorba Corse has announced its LMP3 class commitments in the ACO European Le Mans Series in 2016, running a Ligier JS P3. The Italian team will run the new program alongside its existing GT cars and has confirmed an all-Italian driver line-up of Roberto Lacorte and Giorgio Sernagiotto. The introduction of the LMP3 program is part of Villobra Corse’s ambitions to becomea ‘major contender in the Le Mans Prototype world’.
“Switching to Ligier is a reinforcement of our firm belief in the LMP3 class effectiveness,” explains team principal Raimondo Amadio.”As planned, 2015 was a formative year, now we aim to take advantage of that experience and with Roberto and Giorgio we can do a very good job. We mutually learned to work together on the same project and thanks to the development we are putting in practice inside our structure the team will be very well prepared for an exciting season.”
“It will be a very stimulating year for our way towards the Le Mans 24 Hours,” added Lacorte. “By switching to Ligier, with a new and specialized engineer at our side and with a new organization, Villorba Corse is doing a lot to begin the season in the best possible way. I look forward to lower the visor and take on this new challenge with the right determination and concentration.”
