Manor and TRS to enter LMP1 in 2018/ 19

The FIA and ACO have announced that the revised for 2018 LMP1 category is attracting an increasing number of teams, with the latest confirmed entrant being the Manor and TRS pairing. 

In Shanghai, at a press conference hosted by CEFC China and attended by senior representatives from CEFC China, Talent Racing Sports (TRS), Graeme Lowdon from Manor and Gérard Neveu, CEO of the WEC, it was announced that the team will enter the LMP1 category in the 2018/2019 Super Season.

Currently competing in LMP2 using an Oreca 07 chassis, Manor and TRS – the first Chinese-flagged team to enter LMP1 – will use the Ginetta LMP1 chassis, and an as yet unnamed powertrain. The team is expected to take delivery before the end of the year, with its driver line up announced early 2018.

"TRS and Manor, together with the partnership with CEFC this year, are a perfect fit," commented Neveu at the press conference. "In endurance racing, team spirit, innovation, performance, a taste for challenges and victory are all qualities which will undoubtedly be present and which will, without doubt, make this partnership a great success story. We look forward to welcoming all parties in the WEC paddock this weekend for the 6 Hours of Shanghai, and in future seasons."
