Professional driver Alex Kapadia will be back in the Boutsen Ginion Racing LMP2 Oreca for the final round of the European Le Mans Series.
The three hour race which takes place at the Paul Ricard circuit in the south of France this Saturday will be Kapadia’s second race for the team having made his LMP2 debut in Budapest two weeks ago. This weekend Alex will share the car with 2012 Maserati Trofeo Champion Renaud Kuppens and Radical Masters and GT Open racer James Swift.
Kapadia shone in Hungary and climbed from 15th to 2nd place during his first stint. During his second stint he went on to set the fastest lap of the race in difficult conditions. The fastest lap was eventually taken by Brendan Hartley but Kapadia had made an impression on the paddock. This performance has prompted team owner Olivia Laine-Boutsen to put Alex back in the car for the final round. She commented “We discovered a very quick driver in Hungary. We were impressed by his laptimes and feedback so we are happy to continue the journey here in Le Castellet.”
“I am extremely happy to be given another chance in the car. I proved what I can do at the Hungaroring and hope to build on that this weekend.” said Kapadia.
The race will televised live on Motors TV on Saturday 28th September at 16:00hrs CET.
