Nigel Mansell has targetted an outright win at Le Mans, after receiving an entry for this year's race.
The 1992 Formula One world champion will race in the 24 Hours for the first time this year, sharing an LMP1 Ginetta-Zytek with his sons Leo and Greg.
"I'm extremely happy that we have been granted an entry by the ACO," Mansell said. "It has only been one month since we announced the formation of Beechdean Mansell Motorsport and our intention to compete in the LMS.
"We're under no illusions about the chances of winning Le Mans at the first attempt, but we will be competitive in 2010 and a lot can happen in a 24-hour race.
"The 2010 entry is just the beginning. We're here for the long haul and have our sights firmly set on becoming on of the leading teams in international endurance racing, and winning the Le Mans 24 Hours in the near future."
Mansell will also drive the car in selected LMS rounds this year, alongside Leo and Greg who will contest the full season.
