Loeb joins forces with ADESS, Sora for LMP3 joint venture
LAS Motorsports will be the name of this joint venture between the trio.
Sebastien Loeb Racing, ADESS AG and Sora Racing have come together to form LAS Motorsports with plans to enter an LMP3 car in European Le Mans competition next year.
Loeb will head the program, developing the LMP3 cars and building them under their roof. Sora will deal with production and composite components while ADESS is in charge of design and homologation.
Their unnamed LMP3 is expected to debut in February when the spec Nissan five-liter V8 and Xtrac gearbox is made available to constructors.
