Scottish racer Logan Hannah will make her return behind the wheel with a new challenge: she is in fact set to make her prototype racing debut in the upcoming Ligier European Series, having joined leading team Nielsen Racing.

Hannah, 22, will drive the #4 Ligier JS P4 in the top class of the Ligier European Series, a competitive and growing series on the ELMS package that has established itself as one of the most formative platforms for prototype racing.

A team with a Le Mans podium to their name, Nielsen Racing has currently operations in LMP2 and LMP3 in European Le Mans Series, Asian Le Mans Series as well as Michelin Le Mans Cup - and is expanding for the first time to the Ligier European Series in 2024, thus marking the team's presence in all three racing series in the ELMS package.

Logan Hannah will share the car with British racer Ben Caisley, formerly a front runner and runner-up in the Radical Cup UK.

Hannah started karting at a young age, moving up the ranks mainly in the UAE and Middle East. She competed in the Junior Rotax ME and entered the World Finals at Le Mans.

She would make the step up to single seaters in 2017, becoming the first female driver to ever compete in the F4 UAE championship. She then continued to hone her racecraft in testing both F4 and Ginetta Junior machinery. Back in the UK, Logan competed in the Scottish Formula Ford Championship, and won the David Leslie Trophy at Knockhill.

At the launch of the GB4 Championship in 2022, Hannah was the first driver to be announced to have joined the new series which runs a first-gen F4 Tatuus car.

In GB4, Hannah stood on the podium twice - a second place at Silverstone and a race win at Donington - becoming the second woman to win in the series. She finished in the top ten in all the races she completed and collected 238 points to finish tenth in the drivers' standings.

In 2023, Logan was scheduled to make her GT racing debut and was entered in GT Cup Championship at Snetterton in a 7TSIX McLaren 720S GT3; unfortunately an accident for her teammate ruled her out for the weekend. While she has continued to test GT machinery, she is now set to make her racing return in a week's time, as the Ligier European Series kicks off its 2024 season at Circuit de Catalunya in Barcelona.

The series will feature six events, including one round at Circuit de la Sarthe, Le Mans.
