Italian team will test the new Ligier JS P3 powered by Nissan adding Niccolò Schirò to its regular driver line-up formed by Roberto Lacorte and Giorgio Sernagiotto, who had already confirmed their “Road to Le Mans” racing project. The 22 year old driver from Milan will make his debut on a LMP3 class prototype after two brilliant GT seasons with the team led by Raimondo Amadio.
Team principal Amadio says; “We are expecting two very demanding days in Le Castellet. Approaching the start of the season with Schirò is a reinforcement for our entire racing program.
