Paul-Loup Chatin has been confirmed for a full-season effort in IDEC Sport’s expanded European Le Mans Series program.

The 26-year-old Frenchman, who joined the team for the final two races of last year, will team up with Paul Lafargue in one of its two LMP2 entries.

Chatin, the 2014 ELMS champion with Signatech Alpine, is the latest addition to the organization, following the appointment of Nicolas Minassian as it new sporting director.

“It’s a great opportunity to to be part of this top class team, which has managed to keep its family, friendly atmosphere,” Chatin said. “

On top of that, the arrival of Nicolas Minassian as head of racing confirms all the team’s ambitions and shows how dynamic this team is.

“I am convinced that what he brings, along with all the work done by Patrice Lafargue’s team over the past few years will be an amazing [recipe].”

Olivier Pla, who drove for the team in selected races last year, is not expected to return in 2018.
