“I had the pleasure of meeting with Mark Goddard and David Madgwick early this year in the Asian Le Mans Series and I was really impressed with their programme there. The Ligier P2 was fast week in and week out and the team as a whole were so professional. I followed their 24 Hours of Le Mans programme with interest to, so naturally, I’m excited to be working with Eurasia and the BAM team this year and really looking forward to heading to Daytona for the Roar and then the Rolex 24.
