Motor Sport News - - Racing News -

Bri­tish For­mula Ford race win­ner Garry Find­lay will make his LMP2 de­but this week­end af­ter join­ing Mur­phy Pro­to­types.

Find­lay has se­cured a seat in the Euro­pean Le Mans Se­ries round at Imola, shar­ing Mur­phy’s ORECA-NIS­SAN 03R with Ir­ish drivers Sean Doyle and Rad­i­cal reg­u­lar Pa­trick Mc­clughan.

Find­lay, 26, was due to race in LMP3 this year but a deal evap­o­rated shortly be­fore the start of the cam­paign. He is in talks to ex­tend the deal to race at Spa.

“I’m grate­ful to team owner Greg Mur­phy for mak­ing this chance avail­able and aim to make the most of it. The team has a rep­u­ta­tion for pro­mot­ing young tal­ent,” said Find­lay.

“The LMP2 cat­e­gory is very strong, so there is no bet­ter show­case for me than com­pet­ing against some of sportscar rac­ing’s big­gest names. I want to keep the ball rolling.”
