Ligier Automotive and Frederic Sausset at the 2016 Le Mans 24 Hours
In 2012 Frederic Sausset had to have his four limbs amputated because of necrotising septicaemia. He then set himself an incredible challenge – to race in the Le Mans 24 Hours at the wheel of an LM P2 sports prototype in 2016.
Driven by his unshakeable passion for motor racing and by his invincible willpower Frederic Sausset set up the SRT 41 project (Sausset Racing Team). On 16 June 2016 he started the Le Mans 24 Hours at the wheel of a Morgan LM P2 specially adapted by Ligier Automotive.
The historic success of the Morgan LM P2s at the Le Mans 24 Hours
In 2013, OAK Racing entered three Morgan LM P2s for the 81st Le Mans 24 Hours, the third round of the FIA World Endurance Championship. Two additional Morgan LM P2s were run by KCMG and Morand Racing, two teams which subsequently renewed their confidence in Ligier Automotive by racing Ligier JS P3s and Ligier JS P2s respectively.
