High Class Racing has recruited Swiss racer Mathias Beche for the 87th Le Mans 24 Hours on 15-16 June. The team received one of the final two invites to compete in the finale of the FIA World Endurance Championship 2018-19 Super Season.
Anders Fjordbach and Dennis Andersen will share the wheel of High Class Racing’s #20 Oreca 07-Gibson with Mathias Beche. The Danish outfit has just hired the Swiss racer for its maiden appearance at the 24 Hours of Le Mans.
Thirty-two-year-old Beche already has seven Le Mans starts for teams such as TDS Racing and Rebellion Racing under his belt. Last season, he made the third step on the podium with Thomas Laurent and Gustavo Menezes at the wheel of the #3 Rebellion R13-Gibson. He also won the 6 Hours of Silverstone last year with the same Rebellion Racing squad. Beche therefore brings bags of Le Mans 24 Hours experience to the 2019 European Le Mans Series outfit.
Twenty LMP2 competitors will vie for top honours at the 2019 French endurance classic on 15-16 June.
