During the 2018 season, Duncan is driving alongside Michael Benham with Lanan Racing in the Michelin Le Mans Cup.
Lanan Racing has more than 40 years’ experience in motorsport. It is currently owned and managed by Graham Johnson, a motorsport veteran and race engineer with experience in running race cars from junior formulae to the top flight of the sport. Under his guidance, a select team of engineers and mechanics maintain, operate and develop their winning fleet of race cars.
The Michelin Le Mans Cup, now in its third season, is a six-round contest that takes participants on a tour of top-flight European racetracks from The Algarve to Monza.
Entrants will race in the FIA’s GT3 and LMP3 classes, in vehicles from manufacturers including Aston Martin, Audi, Ferrari, Porsche, BMW, Nissan, Lamborghini and Mercedes Benz.
Five of the six events will support the 2018 European Le Mans Series (ELMS) with a round as part of the 24 Heures du Mans weekend of June 14-16. Each race weekend consists of two free practice sessions on Friday, followed by qualifying on Saturday and a two-hour race. (This format is varied at Le Mans where there are two 55-minute races).
Each car will feature two drivers, defined by the FIA Categorisation List, with one holding a bronze ranking and the other bronze, silver or gold – which is Duncan’s categorisation.
A €320,000 prize fund will provide prize money for race winners in each class, the top three GT3 competitors and the best-performing LMP3. Additionally, the leading GT3 competitor will be invited to the 2018 24 Heures du Mans in the GTE Am category, and the top five LMP3s will get priority entry to ELMS.
