After six seasons in the European Le Mans Series, finishing runner up in the LMP2 championship three times in the last four years, TDS Racing now plans to add an FIA WEC programme to its ELMS entry for 2017 (*subject to admission by the Selection Committee).
The Xavier Combet and Jacques Morello led team will be putting their faith in experienced hands, with LMGTE Am champions Emmanuel Collard and François Perrodo moving up to LMP2 to join Matthieu Vaxivière in an ORECA 07.
“We’re staying true to ORECA with the 07,” Combet said. “The cards are being re-dealt next year in LMP2 and we are delighted to be part of a World Championship.
“In addition, we are pleased to announce new faces with François Perrodo, Manu Collard and Matthieu Vaxivière. I am proud to welcome them to the TDS family, as we move to the next level with the firm desire to do good work in a category that promises to be ultra-competitive.”
