|Racing at Le Mans has been one of Ferdinand’s long-cherished dreams, ever since he started racing. Soon, the 24-year-old Austrian’s wishes will be fulfilled. The 2021 Asian Le Mans Series champion will compete in the greatest motorsport event in the world next week with Team WRT, challenging for the LMP2 win alongside Robin Frijns and Charles Milesi.
|At only 18 years of age, Franco Colapinto is set to embark on the greatest challenge of his career. The Argentinian ROFGO Junior driver will race in the 24 Hours of Le Mans with G-Drive Racing by Algarve Pro. After passing his baptism of fire with flying marks at the 24 Hours of Spa, Colapinto is ready to tick another iconic race off his list. Colapinto will tackle the Circuit de la Sarthe alongside his regular ELMS teammates Nyck de Vries and Roman Rusinov, challenging for the LMP2 victory.
|Angola’s Rui Andrade is experiencing a season of firsts, making the most out of his maiden season in sports car racing. Following a successful debut in the Asian Le Mans Series, the 21-year-old from Luanda has been thriving in the G-Drive Racing by Algarve Pro car on Europe’s finest race tracks. The #25 trio of Andrade, Roberto Merhi, and John Falb have been leading the ELMS Pro-AM standings from the get-go, and they are hungry for more, entering the greatest race on the motorsport calendar well prepared, with all eyes on the top step of the Pro-AM podium. Rui will write Angolan motorsport history by becoming the first driver of his home country to start the legendary race.
|Growing up, Benjamin Goethe watched his father race at Le Mans. Fast forward a few years, the 18-year-old will be joining Roald Goethe in an Audi R8 LMS on the very same track, racing in the Road to Le Mans with Team WRT. It is not the first time for the father-son duo to share a race car, and the last time they did it in Valencia, they ended up winning a Spanish GT race. Besides the two sprint races, Benjamin will also join his brother Oliver and long-time coach Stuart Hall in the 5-hour Fun Cup race.
|Very few people can say they raced at Le Mans at only 16 years old, and Oliver Goethe is about to join this exclusive group of drivers. The youngest Bullet Athlete competing his first Formula 3 season will get his first tin-top race experience at the legendary circuit in a VW Beetle, alongside his brother Benjamin and Stuart Hall. It will also be the ROFGO Junior driver’s first endurance race with pit stops and driver changes but Oliver will enjoy the support of the entire Bullet team to get him up to speed.
|We started Bullet in 2019 with three drivers on board aiming to achieve the maximum from whatever we do but little did we expect that in less than two years we will be heading to Le Mans with five Bullet Athletes. I am proud of what we’ve achieved so far and delighted to see that all the hard work is paying off. It will be a busy week, Ferdinand and Franco going for LMP2 victory is an exciting prospect. Rui going for the LMP2 Pro-Am Victory means that we have the potential for some silverware. On top of this we have Benji and Ollie driving in VW Fun Cup and the Audi R8 LMS and great to see my old teammates Stuart Hall and Roald Goethe driving multiple cars as well from the Rofgo Collection.
The 89th edition of the 24 Hours of Le Mans commences on August 18th with the free practice session. For schedule and live stream links, visit https://bulletsportsmanagement.com/live
