Greaves Motorsport has firmed up the driver lineup for its two-car effort in the 24 Hours of Le Mans, following the release of the full entry list for the event.

The British squad will field a pair of Zytek Z11SN Nissans in LMP2, with Asian Le Mans Series runner-up James Winslow being joined by Michael Nunemann and 18-year-old Alessandro Latif in the Caterham Racing-badged No. 42 car.

The entry was originally to be run under the Caterham banner but the British manufacturer backed out of the deal after the car was placed on the reserve list.

Greaves, however, kept the entry, which was confirmed a starting place on the grid late last month following a series of withdrawals. It it expected to run in Greaves’ traditional white and red livery.

Ironically, Greaves’ No. 41 entry will carry the Caterham colors for U.S. importer Chris Dyson, who will be joined by Tom Kimber-Smith and 16-year-old Matt McMurry, who is vying to become the youngest driver to start the twice-around-the-clock endurance classic.

Kimber-Smith and McMurry are fresh off a fourth-place finish in last weekend’s European Le Mans Series round at Imola.
