Yvan Muller, Team Owner and Team Manager: “We are delighted to be competing in the Ligier European Series for the second year running. We had a great first season. We are going to try to do the same this year. Our objective is clear: to go for the title with our Silver and Bronze drivers.”
Natan Bihel, Driver of the #66 Ligier JS2 R: “I am very happy to be back for a second season in the Ligier European Series. I discovered this championship at its launch last year. I enjoyed myself. But I was left wanting more after finishing second in the championship. My objective this year is to win as many races as possible and win the title. I am delighted to continue with Yvan and M Racing.”
Laurent Millara, Driver of the #69 Ligier JS2 R: “I think I can do something special this season. The sporting regulations were changed to take into account the Silver crews and drivers, and with the time handicaps imposed on the Silver, it could be quite interesting. I’m looking forward to my second season with M Racing”.
