New driver change at COOL Racing in European Le Mans Series after the replacement of Alejandro Garcia by Carl Wattana Bennett for the second part of the season. This is only temporary since Ritomo Miyata will not be able to be present at the 4 Hours of Imola on July 7 due to a conflict of dates with the Formula 2, a championship in which the Japanese is entered with Rodin Motorsport.

To replace him alongside Malthe Jakobsen and Lorenzo Fluxa in No. 37, Nicolas lapierre, boss of COOL Racing, called on a man he knows well in the person of Paul-Loup Chatin, his teammate at Alpine in the Hypercar category of the World ChampionshipEndurance of the FIA. The former IDEC Sport player has already worn the colors of the Swiss team during the first rounds of theELMS this season (at Barcelona and at Le Castellet) since he replaced another member of the A arrow team, Ferdinand Habsburg, who injured his back when he went off the track during a test session at Motorland Aragón.

Recovered after several weeks of convalescence which meant he also missed the 6 Hours of Imola and the 6 Hours of Spa-Francorchamps in the FIA WEC, the Austrian returned to the wheel of the A424 during the 24 Hours of Le Mans and should logically be fielded by COOL Racing at Imola in the No. 47 alongside Frederik Vesti and therefore Carl Wattana Bennett.
