2023 European Le Mans Series

After a best ever season in the series, Nielsen Racing can confirm a return to the European Le Mans in LMP2 PA and LMP3 for the 2023 edition.

The team's Oreca 07 will see Rodrigo Sales and Ben Hanley pair up with Le Mans and WEC champion Mathias Beche for a second LMP2 ProAm assault. In LMP3, Tony Wells will be joined by Ryan Harper-Ellam in the Ligier JSP320.

About Nielsen Racing

It started as one car, one truck and a winning Radical European Masters campaing. Eight years, two 24 Hours of Le Mans and five championship titles later, Sven Thompson and the Nielsen Racing team face their LMP2 sophomore year in Asia and Europe.

After breaking all the records in the Asian Le Mans, Nielsen Racing stepped up to LMP2 in Europe for the team's best season ever in the Series, only missing the podium on the first round and earning our first ELMS race winning team trophy - and third place in the championship!  .
