Kuba Giermaziak has been named as the third and final driver for Greaves Motorsport in its Ligier JS P2 Nissan for the European Le Mans Series and 24 Hours of Le Mans.

Giermaziak, from Gostyn, Poland, started his career in single seaters but later switched over to the Porsche Supercup. He came second in the championship in 2014, missing out on the honors to Earl Bamber.

“I’m very happy to move up to such a great car,” he said. “It will be absolutely amazing to drive for Greaves Motorsport in the European Le Mans Series and 24 Hours of Le Mans this season in the LMP2 class.

“It’s a dream come true for me, as driving prototypes was something I wanted to do since I was a little kid. We have everything we need to fight for the championship.”

The 25 year-old will join Memo Rojas and Julien Canal in the LMP2 entry throughout the season, starting with this weekend’s Four Hours of Silverstone.

“This is the final piece in the jigsaw for 2016,” said team principal Jacob Greaves. “We are really excited to secure Kuba to drive our car. He has shown real pace during our pre-season test program combined with excellent feedback on the engineering side.

“More importantly he has fitted right in with Memo, Julien and the guys on the team, there is a really good chemistry developing. We are all motivated to match, and even exceed, our performance of 2015, we want to be champions again.

“Given the strength of our opposition that is a tall order, but we have the team, the car and, most importantly, the drivers to achieve this goal. We are looking forward to Silverstone this week.”
