24 Hours of Le Mans 2023 – The crew of the Porsche n°88 finally finalized


After Tristan Vautier who replaces Jacques Villeneuve at Vanwall and Roberto Lacorte who replaced François Hériau at Graff, a new change is announced on the entry list for the centenary edition.

Indeed, Ollie Millroy and Brendan Iribe will not be part of the Proton Competition Porsche 911 RSR-19 n°88. They are indeed replaced by Donald Yount and Jonas Ried, two drivers who have never taken part in the Le Mans classic.

Aged 54, the American – ranked Bronze – has been seen in GT World Challenge, IGTX, Michelin LeMans Cup and IMSA.

As for Jonas (18), he is none other than the son of Christian Ried, the boss of the German formation. After training in Karting and then in F4, he started in Endurance last winter, in the Asian Le Mans Series, in the LMP3 category. This year, he is racing in the ELMS, in the LMP2 Pro/Am category, in an Oreca 07 entered by the same team as the one he will be defending in La Sarthe.

Two rookies who can count on the help of Harry Tincknell, who has already taken part in the event nine times, notably with a victory in LMP2 in 2014 (Zytek / Jota) and another in GTE Pro in 2020 (Aston Martin ).
