CEFC Manor TRS Racing are pleased to announce that Simon Trummer will join the team for the 2017 FIA World Endurance Championship including the 24 Hours of Le Mans.
The 27 year old Swiss driver has vast experience in motorsport including single seaters and sports cars. The 2017 season will mark his third year in WEC although his first time in the LMP2 field having raced in LMP1 for the previous years.
The full driver line ups for both cars will be released very soon.
Graeme Lowdon, President & Sporting Director, CEFC Manor TRS Racing
“We are very happy to welcome Simon to the team. We have followed Simon’s career through GP3, GP2 and then more recently in LMP1. He has a wealth of experience in motorsport including two 24 hours of Le Mans so he is a great fit to our growing driver line up.
Simon has a very good understanding of WEC so it is great to be working with him. We are looking forward to working together this year and hopefully enjoying some success along the way.”
Simon Trummer, Driver
“I am very grateful to John Booth and Graeme Lowdon for their belief in me. This year a new era begins in LMP2 with new powerful cars that will be significantly quicker and therefore more challenging. To go for podiums in this competitive class is our target. I hope we can put CEFC Manor TRS Racing to the top.
This team was one of the best in Formula 3 and with a comparably low budget they have also earned a lot of respect in Formula 1. They are real racers.”
