Wolfgang Reip gets second Nissan ZEOD Le Mans 24 Hours seat

Wolfgang Reip

Nissan GT Academy winner Wolfgang Reip will make his Le Mans 24 Hours debut this June at the wheel of the Japanese manufacturer's ZEOD RC experimental racer.

The 26-year-old Belgian has been chosen to drive the ZEOD after an impressive prototype debut aboard a Greaves Zytek at last year's World Endurance Championship finale.

That drive came at the end of his first full season of racing in the FIA GT Series and the Blancpain Endurance Series.

Reip is the second driver to be announced for the ZEOD after fellow academy winner Lucas Ordonez.

At the wheel of the Nissan ZEOD

Nissan global motorsport boss Darren Cox said: "Every time we have given Wolfgang another opportunity he has grabbed it with open arms; he really opened everyone's eyes with his LMP2 pace in Bahrain.

"Not only has he been fast but he is a quick learner and his technical feedback has been quite exceptional."

Reip said he was very proud to be selected to race the ZEOD, which fills the 'Garage 56' grid slot at Le Mans reserved for experimental machinery.

"When I got the call, all I could think of was 'wow' - I have only been a race driver for around 18 months," he said.

"To get the chance to race at Le Mans is fantastic - all my life I have been dreaming about this race."

Reip has already tested the ZEOD, describing it as "something completely different to anything I've driven before".
