Minor changes to ELMS entry list

There are some very minor changes to the 4 Hours of Monza entry list, which is the fourth round of this years European Le Mans Series

The race will be run next weekend, with 34 cars on the grid.

DragonSpeed has made a switch in LMP2. Car #21 has been parked, so the defending LMP2 Champion Memo Rojas is without a car. He didn’t, however, have any chances of claiming the title again, since he has only scored 5,5 points during the first three weekends with the team. The team will instead run car #27, which is the “old” DragonSpeed line-up with Henrik Hedman and Ben Hanley, who will be joined by Charles Milesi, which is a new name in the LMP2 category.

Algarve Pro Racing has made a change to car #24. Loic Duval is on DTM duties, so they have called up Arjun Maini, who finally has made the trip from India to Europe, so he will be able to participate for the team, which was the original plan prior to the season, but got blocked by the COVID-19 situation.

G-Drive Racing #26 will continue with their full Le Mans line up consisting of Mikkel Jensen, Roman Rusinov and Jean-Eric Vergne.

There is a total of 15 cars in the LMP2 category.

It’s status quo amongst the LMP3 cars, regarding the number of cars, and the car numbers, but there have been a few driver changes. RLR MSport #15 with full-season drivers Malthe Jakobsen and James Dayson will have their third different teammate in four races, when Gustas Grinberges will join the team. That is no bad switch since he was lightning fast in the LMP3 category last year, and won the LMP2 Am title in the Asian Le Mans Series last winter.

He was part of the BHK Motorsport #16 car at Paul Ricard, where only Italian Lorenzo Veglia will remain a part of the crew. He will be joined by Belgian racer Tom Cloet and Frenchman Philippe Paillot.

We have lost AF Corse Ferrari #51 from the GTE category. That car was crashed heavily at Le Mans by Alexander West when he went off in the Porsche curves Saturday evening. That leaves us with 7 cars, in the category consisting of 5 Ferrari and two Porsche cars.

Nicklas Nielsen has once again been called up for Iron Lynx Ferrari #60, alongside Claudio Schiavoni and Rino Mastronardi. Nielsen was added to the car just a few days prior to the Paul Ricard event, and they have obviously been so satisfied with the Dane, that the Ferrari works driver has been added once again

The 4 Hours of Monza will run on Sunday 11 October, with race start at 11.00 CET.
