Riviera Beach, Fla., – Tequila Patrón ESM returns to its familiar Patrón green and black-livered Ligier J2 P2 race machines this weekend for the inaugural 6 Hours of Nürburgring, the fourth round of the FIA World Endurance Championship (FIA WEC).

Following two top-10 finishes at the 24 Hours of Le Mans in June, Tequila Patrón ESM drivers Scott Sharp, Ed Brown, Johannes van Overbeek, Ryan Dalziel, Jon Fogarty, and David Heinemeier Hansson are ready to attack the German circuit.

In its debut season in the WEC, Tequila Patrón ESM has experienced plenty of firsts, including competing on most of the international circuits for the first time. But this weekend’s race is new for more than just the Tequila Patrón ESM team; this race is the first FIA WEC event in Germany since the series inception in 2012. Famous in its own right, the Nürburgring is host to Formula One and the 24 Hours of Nürburgring.

Test at Nürburgring

Tequila Patrón ESM drivers logged their first laps at the 3.199-mile (5.148-kilometer), 16-turn German facility in July. Since that test, the drivers have been mentally driving the circuit and physically preparing for the demanding race.

Feeling optimistic about the venue, the team is also more confident in the Ligier JS P2 Honda-powered machines. In 2015, Tequila Patrón ESM is the only sports car team that has competed with two different chassis in the WEC. Now in its third race with the Ligier JS P2 chassis, the team is targeting its first podium finish of the season.

Tequila Patrón ESM on Track

Friday’s two free practice sessions start at noon and 4:30 p.m. Central European Time (6 a.m. and 10:30 a.m. ET.)

Saturday’s on-track activity includes the hour-long practice session starting at 9:30 a.m. CET/3:30 a.m. ET.
