A new team is born ! SO24! by Lombard Racing will now enter endurance racingligier

The team arose from the meeting of two automobile racing fans already known and involved in the racing world: Dominique Payen and Jean Lombard.

Dominique Payen is in charge of SO24!. This team aims at promoting its drivers by making them reach the highest level in endurance racing.

SO24! originates from a partnership made with the ACO (Automobile Club de l’Ouest) sport driving school.

For a few seasons, many companies have trusted this organisation and more and more pilots are wearing the colors of SO24!

Jean Lombard has trained a whole generation of drivers with the Formula Ford sport driving school in Montlhery. He has also been the manager of many teams in different racing disciplines.

Payen and Lombard have decided to join their competences in order to build their own race team:

The team will be operational next season and will be based in Le Mans.

It will enter two sports prototypes in the European endurance championship ELMS (European Le Mans Series): one in LMP2 class and one in the LMP3 category.

An invitation for the next 24 Hours of Le Mans in LMP2, will be solicited from the ACO (Automobile Club de l’Ouest).

Ligier is the manufacturer chosen for both chassis (JSP2 and JSP3).

Regarding the drivers of the LMP2 car, two profiles have been selected, each of them having a strong experience in endurance racing: Vincent Capillaire, Alpine driver this season and Olivier Lombard, winner of the LMP2 class in Le Mans in 2011. The third driver will be announced in the near future.

Thomas Dagoneau and two other drivers (still to be unveiled) will make up the LMP3 crew.

The official presentation of the SO24! team by Lombard Racing will be held in the beginning of March 2016.
