LMP2 Category

The LM P2 category is aimed at private teams, independent from manufacturers and/or engine suppliers. It responds to technical regulations and a strict limit on costs, defined by the FIA and the Automobile Club de l'Ouest. Close to the LM P1 on the technological side, namely with the carbon monocoque chassis, the LM P2 cars have less powerful engines.
Since 2017, a new regulation has been put into place with only four manufacturers chosen for the obligatorily closed chassis – Onroak Automotive, Oreca, Dallara and Riley Tech/Multimatic – and a unique engine supplier, Gibson Technology.
Meanwhile, the LM P2 of the previous generation will still be allowed to run.

In June 2014, the Ligier JS P2 made a great entry into competition: three chassis equipped with two engines and two different tyre manufacturers complete the 24 Hours of Le Mans, one of the most demanding races on the human, technical and sporting scale. This exploit was completed with pole position in LM P2 and second position in the category claimed by the Thiriet by TDS Racing Ligier JS P2-Nissan-Dunlop.


2015 was marked by the success of the Ligier JS P2 in the FIA World Endurance Championship. G-Drive Racing entered two Ligier JS P2-Nissan-Dunlop and won the world LM P2 title with four victories and five pole positions to their name. The 2016 edition of the FIA WEC saw the Ligier JS P2, over the nine races of the season, on the LM P2 podium eight times, and on the top step twice.

2016 is also a year of great achievements for the Ligier JS P2 on the American continent. Ligier became the first French brand to win the legendary 24 Hours of Daytona with the victory of the Tequila Patron ESM Ligier JS P2-Honda, which also went on to win a few weeks later at the 12 Hours of Sebring. Michael Shank Racing's victories at Laguna Seca and Petit Le Mans were also added to the Ligier JS P2's track record.
