Ligier’s latest design to compete under global LMP3 regulations, the Ligier JS P320 launched in the summer of 2019. The JS P320 succeeded the JS P3 that had been running since 2015, scoring hundreds of wins and multiple championships across global and international series. It represented major changes from its predecessor in bodywork and suspension, and added traction control and a new, more powerful Nissan V8 engine as part of a new generation of LMP3 regulations.
In its first two seasons as a part of the top-level IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship, Ligier entries dominated the LMP3 class. Riley Motorsports finished first and third in the standings in 2021, led by driver’s champion Gar Robinson, while the CORE Autosport duo of Colin Braun and Jon Bennett finished second in that inaugural season before winning the title in 2022. For 2024 and beyond, the JS P320 and all other LMP3s will compete exclusively in the IMSA VP Racing SportsCar Challenge, where it will be the faster car in multi-class racing exclusively alongside GT4 cars.
