LM P3 - 08/02/2019 - Press Release
The pair will share a Nielsen Racing entered and prepared Ligier JS P3 sports prototype powered by a 420 bhp Nissan V8.
The pair has already tasted title-winning success together with the 2018 UK LMP3 Cup, Colin taking the title for a second consecutive year after also winning in 2017 alongside Alasdair McCaig.
Noble also came close to the title in the 2018 ELMS-supporting Michelin Le Mans Cup, scoring a pair of race wins, and two further podiums, to finish second in the season standings.
2018’s ELMS saw Noble finish in 4th position, a trio of second places providing a real target for improvement for the coming season.
“I’m delighted to be returning to the Series in 2019, the team, the car, and Tony really should provide me with everything required to take the Championship fight to the competition.
“After tackling the four-hour race of the ELMS with a three driver crew last season, moving to a two-man set-up adds challenges, but also gives both of us the opportunity to get additional valuable time in the car at every round.
“I was happy with my form last season, and by the year’s end the results were really coming - I intend to pick up right where we left off and challenge for wins immediately.”
The 2019 European Le Mans Series is composed of six four hour races at top-class European venues, starting with Paul Ricard, home of the French F1 Grand Prix.
