A long-standing major player in LMP2, Xavier Combet's team scored the pole and the second step on the class podium in 2014 (under the name Thiriet by TDS Racing at the time).

Team Goals at the 2019 24 Hours of Le Mans:

Gentleman-driver François Perrodo, Loïc Duval and Matthieu Vaxivière form a driver line-up whose speed and experience make it a serious contender for the top 5 in the class. TDS Racing has another ace up its sleeve: since 2018, the team has run Russian team G-Drive Racing's car, a four-time winner since 2015 (FIA World Endurance Championship in 2015, European Le Mans Series in 2016, 2017 and 2018).
