Chris Dyson Set To Make FIA WEC LMP1 Debut With Team LNT

Two-time American Le Mans Series Champion Chris Dyson makes his FIA World Endurance Championship LMP1 debut in Bahrain next month aboard the #6 Team LNT Ginetta G60-LT-P1.

Dyson, from Pleasant Valley, New York, joins
the team after completing his Trans AM title challenge in the USA  two
weeks ago with a clean sweep of pole position, race win and fastest lap that
saw him fall just short of claiming the 2019 drivers title.
He’ll be joined in the #6 Ginetta by Ginetta factory driver Mike Simpson, and
by his long-time friend and regular co-driver in the title winning ALMS
campaigns, 2003 Le Mans 24 Hours winner Guy Smith. The race in Bahrain will be
his first appearance in an FIA WEC meeting since 2013, when he competed in
the LMP2 class.

The sister #5 car sees
Ginetta factory man Charlie Robertson return, after driving the #6 Ginetta last
time out in China.
Charlie will be joined by Ben Hanley and Jordan King.

Team LNT Owner Lawrence
Tomlinson said:
“It’s great to finally get Chris in the car. He showed great speed and
consistency in pre-season testing and I know he’s raring to go.
“Bahrain should suit the Ginetta, and as we saw in Shanghai where we ran first
and second for over an hour and set the fastest lap, there is a real
opportunity for a breakthrough result.

“At 8 Hours the race
will be the longest so far for the Ginetta AER package but the reliability so
far has been excellent. A good result is there for the taking.”

Chris Dyson said:
“It’s been a long wait to get back into an LMP1 car. I can’t wait.
“The car was excellent in testing and I have been keeping a close eye on the
team’s progress through the season so far.
“Bahrain, finishing at night under the floodlights, will be a new experience
for me. I’ll be pushing as hard as I can to deliver on the clear potential of
the Ginetta AER package.”

The 8 Hours of Bahrain
gets underway on 14 December.
