Greaves Motorsport is set for a return to a regular-season FIA World Endurance Championship race, as part of a tie-in with promoters of the new Mexico City event.
Sportscar365 has learned that the British squad has entered its 2015 European Le Mans Series championship-winning Gibson 015S Nissan for the Sept. 1-3 event at Autodromo Hermanos Rodriguez, with a to-be-determined driver lineup.
According to Toni Calderon, executive advisor for the Six Hours of Mexico race, the goal is to have an all-Mexican driver lineup in the LMP2 entry, which is being supported by the race organizers.
“Being promoters of the race, it’s important to have a Mexican car there,” Calderon told Sportscar365. “We’re still working out the details but there will be some exciting news for the fans.”
Calderon is also the Sporting Director for the RGR Sport by Morand squad, which is a separate entity but like the Mexico City event, is carrying the backing of Ricardo Gonzalez.
Gonzalez, the 2013 WEC LMP2 World Champion, serves as promoter of the Mexico City race.
Further details on the Mexican effort, which will run under the Greaves banner, is expected to be finalized in the next month.
