Murphy Prototypes is set to continue fielding young drivers in round two of the European Le Mans Series, at the Four Hours of Imola this weekend.

Last time out at Silverstone, the Irish squad had a trio of rookie drivers all on their prototype debut, in the team’s Oreca 03R Nissan.

For the Italian round, Sean Doyle remains with the team, but will be joined by two new drivers; Garry Findlay and Patrick McClughan.

Findlay finished on the LMP3 podium on his series debut last year at Imola, while McClughan will embark on his first ELMS race this weekend.

Most recently, McClughan won the Sunoco 200 Challenge, resulting in a drive in the Continental Tire SportsCar Challenge BMW Performance 200 at Daytona in January.

“Our team has always been committed to showcasing young talent and giving drivers the opportunity to develop their natural ability,” said team principal Greg Murphy.

“Seán did a great job for us at Silverstone on his first time out in an LMP2 car and it’s good to have him driving for us again.

“All three of them are quick and hungry young drivers, so I’m thrilled they are with us at Imola.

“We are confident that racing with Murphy Prototypes will be a huge step forward in helping them reach their motorsport goals.”
