Richard Bradley will drive for Duqueine Engineering in the upcoming European Le Mans Series season, joining Nico Jamin and Pierre Ragues in the LMP2 class.

The Brit replaces Nelson Panciatici who co-drove with Jamin and Ragues last year and scored a best result of third at Circuit Paul Ricard.

The team also finished second on the road at the Red Bull Ring before having its podium rescinded for a fuel irregularity.

Jamin took pole in the Portimao season finale, but a retirement in the race meant Duqueine finished eighth in the teams’ standings.

Duqueine will again run a single Oreca 07 Gibson in the top class alongside its role managing the Norma M30 Nissans in the LMP3 category.

Bradley returns for his first full season in ELMS since 2017 when he competed with Graff, finishing third in the standings after scoring two wins late in the season.

“I’m delighted to see such a quality team ready to race in LMP2 for the second year in a row,” said team manager Yann Belhomme.

“It is with great pride and motivation that Team Duqueine Engineering will start this new season of European Le Mans Series.

“There is no doubt that we will be a force to be reckoned with in this tough competition!”

Duqueine has also submitted an entry into the 24 Hours of Le Mans, for which Sportscar365 understands Bradley is likely to be replaced by a Platinum-rated driver.
