ARC Bratislava has confirmed the driver lineup for its first full FIA World Endurance Championship campaign ahead of next month’s season-opening Total 6 Hours of Spa-Francorchamps.

Team owner Miro Konopka will handle driving duties of the team’s Ligier JS P17 Gibson for the entire six-round season and will be joined by Oliver Webb for the majority of the season.

Previous racing commitments in the UK, however, has ruled Webb out of contesting the Spa round, where he will be replaced by Darren Burke.

Burke has driven for the team since 2017, which included a successful run in the Asian Le Mans Series’ LMP3 class.

British GT ace and Porsche GB Sprint Challenge runner-up Tom Jackson, meanwhile, will complete the lineup for the Belgian round.

The No. 44 Ligier is one of 14 LMP2 entries due to take part in the May 1 enduro that will open the ninth season of the globe-trotting championship, which features a 37-car overall grid.
