Epsilon Euskadi will have a second ee1 LMP1 at the 24 Hours of Le Mans starting grid next weekend, thanks to another team disqualification. Epsilon Euskadi’s effort at Le Mans had been prized with the best news the team could receive: Green light for their second ee1 LMP1. On prevision of this contingency, the team brought a second chassis last week to La Sarthe facility.
Ex-F1 drivers Shinji Nakano, Jean-Marc Gounon, and Le Mans winner Stefan Johansson, will drive the car, as it was scheduled. Joan Villadelprat: “It’s the best news we could receive. For sure, it’s a big challenge, but also encouraging. Our possibilities to achieve a good result have grown up a lot. Last hours are crazy, calling the second car’s drivers to arrive quickly to Le Mans.”
