Larbre Competition has confirmed the driver lineup for its debut in next month’s Gulf 12 Hours.

Four French drivers will compete in the team’s Porsche 991 Cup car, that will compete in the Porsche Cup class of the event.

Le Mans regular Manuel Rodrigues will join the team, having last raced for Larbre in an endurance race at the 2013 Le Mans 24 Hours.

He will be joined by Porsche Carrera Cup driver Christian Philippon, Renault Clio Cup France driver Denis Gibaud and Franck Labescat, Philippon’s teammate in GT Tour.

“We are delighted to be competing at Yas Marina for the very first time this year. With Larbre’s history of international competition, it is great to be adding another fantastic circuit and event to our CV,” Larbre’s Jack Leconte said.

“We have assembled a team of experienced gentleman drivers and, with the support of the excellent Larbre crew, I’m sure they can show strongly in the Gulf 12 Hours.”
