Ligier LMP3

The Nielsen Racing LMP3 story is only new but is already adding to the great successes that Nielsen Racing have already won in other racing series.

In 2017 Nielsen Racing aside from running their own Ligier JS P3 joined forces with the world famous Ecurie Ecosse to prepare their Number 79 car to enter the Henderson LMP3 Cup competing in the UK and across Europe. The LMP3 Cup takes in some of the greatest tracks in the world to allow our client drivers to experience and compete in one of the top flight levels of prototype racing.

The Ligier JS P3 is a specifically designed V8 prototype racer that along with its low weight, carbon fibre construction that allows for a car that will challenge drivers and reward those who have trained in how to wrangle this 900kg, 5 litre prototype it also allows the greatest range of flexibility in drivers, allowing for drivers from 5ft 2in up to 6ft 3in and meaning we can accommodate our client drivers their seat in this exciting new racing series.

The newly formed LMP3 category is also Le Mans LMP Category eligible and Nielsen Racing will be there on the front row alongside our partners Ecurie Ecosse and we have opened up this opportunity to our client drivers to be involved in the greatest race on earth.
