Norma Auto Concept has unveiled the M30, its new LMP3 challenger, along with the announcement of a partnership with TDS Racing.
The manufacturer received a place on the ACO’s official LMP3 constructors list in March 2016, and the M30 was finally revealed this week.
While several teams have already expressed interest in running the M30, Norma is eager to limit the amount of chassis produced.
However, TDS Racing bosses Xavier Combet and Jacques Morello have confirmed that the French outfit’s LMP3 program will be with the M30.
“The arrival of Norma in LMP3 was expected by many teams,” said Combet. “We all know the quality of the prototypes produced by Norbert Santos’ team.
“When we were quite recently able to discover the technical program being implemented around the design of the M30, we were immediately seduced.
“We are convinced that this new car will enable TDS drivers to shine out in a category that we will join with a strong enthusiasm and a lot of ambition.
“Our LMP3 program will be announced soon. But for the moment, it’s all about the 24 Hours of Le Mans!”
“This is another very important moment in the history of Norma that we are in the middle of writing,” added Norma Auto Concept founder Norbert Santos.
“We put a lot of resources and energy into the design of the M30.
“This will not only be a beautiful car but, we are convinced, it is also a performance car that will meet the expectations of our future partner teams.
“Other teams have already made clear their intention to join us. These are trusted brands that affect us, whilst the first car will only be, as scheduled, assembled at the end of the summer.”
