Bullitt Racing join the fifty cars entered into the Road to Le Mans

Friday, June 03, 2022


The Michelin Le Mans Cup showcases its blue riband Road to Le Mans round in support of the World Endurance Championship’s visit to the Circuit de La Sarthe next weekend for this time, two races around the iconic 24 hours circuit with what should be a fifty-car event.

Bolstered in numbers in both the GT3 and LMP3 classes for this third round of their 2022 season again sees the Spanish based Bullitt Racing team represent the Aston Martin Racing marque at an event previously well served by those in AMR Vantage GT3 cars before.

Last year we saw the Oman Racing with TF Sport AMR of Ahmad Al Harty and Michael Dinan take a podium finish in race 1 with both TF Sport and Beechdean AMR flying the flag in 2019 with TF Sport taking a double class win in 2017 with drivers Al Harthy and Tom Jackson.

This year’s Le Mans Cup Series has also started well for Bullitt Racing with drivers Stephen Pattrick and Theo Nouet just missing out on an AMR powered debut podium finish after a dramatic build up to the opening round at Paul Ricard in April followed by a P2 in class finish for the #99 red and black machine at the last round at Imola in May.

Those rounds have placed the team third in class as the series reaches it middle stages of the season.

For Le Mans, the team reverts to its intended driver line up as young Parisian Valentin Hasse-Clot finally becomes available to pair up with team boss Pattrick for these two races and beyond as his prior engagements within the FFSA GT4 Series prevented his participation at both the Paul Ricard and Imola rounds.

Thirty-six LMP3 cars mix with the thirteen GT3 cars make up the capacity sized grid at Le Mans (ten additional cars to the full season entry) for the two fifty-five-minute races that will take place on the Thursday evening and Saturday morning prior the start of the Le Mans 24Hr itself.

For the first time, both races will be live streamed via the Series social media channels.
