Nick Tandy and Mathieu Jaminet will complete the lineup in Porsche Penske Motorsport’s third factory Hypercar class entry for the 24 Hours of Le Mans, the German manufacturer has confirmed.

The pairing, who co-drive the No. 6 Porsche 963 in the IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship, join the previously announced Felipe Nasr in the No. 75 car for the French endurance classic.

Matt Campbell, meanwhile, has been confirmed as the reserve driver across the entire Porsche Penske lineup.

Tandy, who won the race in a Porsche 919 Hybrid in 2015, will make his top class prototype return to Le Mans in six years, while Jaminet is set for his second start start in the race.

Nasr, meanwhile, has three previous LMP2 class starts under his belt, the most recent coming last year with Team Penske.

A decision on the third car lineup is understood to have been taken following the the Mobil 1 Twelve Hours of Sebring, with Porsche factory LMDh director Urs Kuratle having indicated to Sportscar365 mid-event that it was not yet set in stone.

The car will carry the No. 75 commemorating the 75th anniversary of Porsche sports cars.
