“We’ve scored a total of seven Road to Le Mans podiums, including a race win in 2017, and our five-car entry is hungry to add to this. We had two of our cars inside the top-three in the last MLMC race at Imola and so we’re excited for another good performance at Le Mans this year.”



Richard Dean


"I'm very happy to be returning to the RtLM paddock for another year. It's great to welcome back Jim McGuire and Guy Smith, especially with Guy's previous knowledge and achievements at this circuit. It's exciting having a five car entry this year and I know that all the drivers are desperate to get out on track and make the most of the two races!"
