Michael Fassbender will have a new co-driver for this weekend’s European Le Mans Series counters at La Castellet in France.
The Fossa driver and Hollywood A-lister will team up with New Zealander Jaxon Evans as regular driver Felipe Laser “Cannot be present due to other work commitments,” according to a Team Proton Competition statement.
Richard Lietz will remain as the lead driver of their Porsche 911 RSR for Sunday’s four-hour race, the third round of the European Le Mans Series.
Meanwhile, Fassbender is being linked with a possible Porsche Super Cup outing in Austria next month in a separate deal to his European Le Mans Series.
The Porsche Super Cup runs alongside several European rounds of the World Formula One Grand Prix championship.
The Austrian Grand Prix is set for Sunday July 4 and Fassbender could drive one of the guest cars in the Porsche Super Cup support race.
He did so at the Spanish Grand Prix in Barcelona last year where is was involved in accident on the first lap that was not of his making.
