– the Scottish motor racing team that trounced the big manufacturer-backed teams to win the Le Mans 24-hour race in 1956 and 1957 – has announced their aim to return to the classic French race in 2019.
This follows a successful 2017 season, competing in the Michelin Le Mans Cup and the UK-based Henderson Insurance Brokers LMP3 Cup, in which Ecurie Ecosse took the title. Team driver and rising star, Colin Noble (above, left) chalked up no less than seven race wins in 2017.
For 2018 Colin will again be teaming up with Ecurie Ecosse team owner and driver Alasdair McCaig (above, right) in the latest Ecurie Ecosse car (pictured below).
The programme will again include both series, with the intention of securing an entry for the Le Mans 24-hour race in 1919.
“The team has really got some momentum behind it right now,” Alasdair McCaig enthuses, “and it is fantastic to be participating in three championships across Europe.
“We have three sets of top driver line-ups for the up-and -oming season and we will be looking to carry our success forward from last season.”
