Team Cool Racing – ELMS


Nicolas Lapierre
Born on 2 April 1984 in Thonon-les-Bains, France

After cutting his teeth in karting, Nicolas Lapierre made a name for himself shortly after switching to single-seater racing in 2000. In 2002, he finished third in the Formula Renault 2.0 Eurocup, before winning on the streets of Macau in 2003 at the famous F3 Grand Prix. His single-seater career equally saw him win the A1 GP (2006) championship and claim two GP2 race wins (2007). It was also in 2007 that he made his debut at Le Mans, where he immediately fell in love with Endurance racing. Specialised in the discipline since then, he was part of the Toyota Gazoo Racing works team for three seasons (2012-2014), backed at the time by TotalEnergies, winning a few of the most prestigious races (12 Hours of Sebring in 2011 and 2018) and becoming something of an authority at the world's greatest endurance race. Indeed, he finished third overall at Le Mans in 2014 but has also won the LMP2 class on four occasions (2015, 2016, 2018 and 2019), including three with the ELF brand. In 2022, Nicolas Lapierre is under the spotlights since he is racing in the European Le Mans Series for his own structure, Cool Racing, backed by ELF.
