The full driver line-up for the Inception Racing / Garage 59 Le Mans entry was confirmed today. Team owner Alexander West (SWE) will be joined by former Garage 59 driver, Côme Ledogar (FRA) and reigning Porsche Carrera Cup France Champion, Marvin Klein (FRA).
Ledogar has achieved great success in the past couple of years in the Ferrari 488 GT3 in GT World Challenge Europe and the 488 GTE at Le Mans. In 2021, Côme was on the winning team at the 24 Hours of Spa and also at the 24 Hours of Le Mans, where he took the GTE Pro victory in the AF Corse Ferrari.
“Alex and I have been saying for a while that we should race together again,” said Ledogar. “It’s great that it will happen at the biggest race in the world in the best team combination possible. Let’s go for a fast and smooth race!”
Alexander West started his GT3 adventure with Côme, so is looking forward to racing with him again. West’s own Le Mans debut came in 2020 in an AF Corse Ferrari 488 GTE. With the team receiving extra support from AF Corse at Le Mans, this team with this line-up is expected to be a strong contender.
As the reigning Porsche Carrera Cup France Champion, Marvin Klein has proved he has what it takes to compete at a high level. This will be his first Le Mans, which is always a special moment for a driver.
“I want to say a big thank you to the whole team,” he said. “Thanks to Alex and Côme for the trust in me to compete at the biggest race of them all. It’s a big challenge and I feel ready to give it 100%, all the way to the chequered flag.
Garage 59 Team Principal, Andrew Kirkaldy said: “We’ve put a lot of thought into selecting the perfect driver line-up for Le Mans and I think we have put together a very strong team. Alex gets faster by the day and is an old hand at endurance racing now, Côme’s credentials are clear for anyone to see and Marvin is one of the most promising young talents out there.”
The 90th running of the 24 Hours of Le Mans gets underway at 16:00 CEST on 11 June 2022.
