WEC: Tristan Vautier joins the field for first two rounds


Former Indy Lights champion and IndyCar rookie-of-the-year Tristan Vautier will make his FIA World Endurance Championship debut at Silverstone as part of the Team SARD-Morand effort in LMP2.

Vautier will share the No. 43 Morgan EVO SARD with Oliver Webb and Pierre Ragues at Silverstone and Spa, the first two rounds of the season.

The team’s new third driver from the 24 Hours of Le Mans will be the one who emerges victorious from the Race to 24 interactive online reality competition.

“It is an honor to join Team SARD-Morand for these two events and to compete in my very first FIA WEC races,” Vautier said in a release. “I would like to thank Benoit and his partners for this opportunity. With Oliver and Pierre we have a very good lineup and and I am looking forward to starting work with the whole team.”
