The racing team

A race team mixing experience and youthfulness

Since 2015, IDEC SPORT has been able to develop, grow and evolve into a solid structure. In the eight years of its existence, IDEC SPORT has carved out a place for itself in the world of international competition thanks to the right choices of drivers and management. In 2019, the team won the European Endurance Championship.




President of the IDEC Group during the week, Patrice Lafargue likes to spend his weekends behind the steering wheel of his racing cars. As he likes to tell his team, the main thing is to enjoy it. Even if his team is today semi-professional, the competitive side must not come before the enjoyment of racing.



Having arrived at IDEC SPORT in 2018, the former Peugeot professional driver in WEC is taking on even more scope in 2021 by becoming Team Principal. His experience in motorsport is extensive, whether in driving, technical or management, which makes him an ultra versatile sports director. The man with 9 victories at the wheel of the 908 and 17 participations in the 24 Hours of Le Mans, brings a lot to IDEC SPORT but there is still a lot of work to be done to settle the details that will lead to victory. Nicolas Minassian will start his 6th season with IDEC SPORT in 2023.

MLMC, Ligier #17

Patrice is no longer a beginner in motorsport but still lives each race weekend with passion, the same passion that drove him to create IDEC SPORT in 2015. After sharing the wheel with his son at the 2017 24 Hours of Le Mans, he decided to fully embrace his role as a team owner by stepping back and racing competitive trios in LMP2. But a competitor at heart, there was no question of hanging up the helmet completely. Patrice is competing in the ELMS’ sister championship, the Michelin Le Mans Cup, in the LMP3 class.


MLMC, Ligier #17

Dino Lunardi is an experienced driver who knows the Michelin Le Mans Cup and the Ligier JSP3 inside out, having driven them for four years in this championship. The Frenchman is a real asset to IDEC SPORT thanks to his speed and consistency.
