LMP2 squad Richard Mille Racing has finalized its 24 Hours of Le Mans driver lineup with the confirmation of Beitske Visser as part of its all-female crew.

Visser, who drove for the team in the last two European Le Mans Series rounds, will share the No. 50 Oreca 07 Gibson with Tatiana Calderon and Sophia Floersch.

Katherine Legge was originally set to drive the Signatech-prepared car but her ongoing recovery from injuries sustained in a pre-season testing accident left a vacant seat.

Visser has since been nominated to fill the TBA driver slot, which was the last gap to be addressed on the 24-car LMP2 entry list.

It means the BMW-affiliated driver is now poised for her Le Mans debut, as is the case for Super Formula driver Calderon and Formula 3 competitor Floersch.

Visser finished sixth on her LMP2 debut in the 4 Hours of Spa alongside Calderon and Andre Negrao, while she and Floersch brought the Richard Mille car home in 11th at the Le Castellet 240 round of ELMS.

Richard Mille Racing has one of two all-female crews entered into this year’s Le Mans, along with Iron Lynx which is fielding a Ferrari 488 GTE Evo for Michelle Gatting, Manuela Gostner and Rahel Frey.
