Patron ESM heads to Paul Ricard (VIDEO)


Tequila Patron ESM has made its first voyage into the FIA World Endurance Championship as a full-time entrant at this past weekend’s test at The Prologue at Paul Ricard.

The team ran two races last year at Austin and China, and finished on the podium.

What had been a plan to run the new HPD ARX-04b coupes changed, and Patron ESM will begin the season with its venerable HPD ARX-03b open-top cars at Silverstone.

The team will switch to new Honda-powered Ligier JS P2 coupes from Spa in May.
