Nigel Mansell is targeting a drive in this year's Le Mans 24 Hours after buying in to British sportscar team Beechdean Motorsport.
The 1992 Formula 1 world champion has formed Beechdean Mansell Motorsport to run a factory-backed Ginetta-Zytek Z09R in the LMP1 class of the Le Mans Series (LMS) this year, and is hoping to receive an entry for the 24 Hours as part of the deal.
Mansell's two sons, Leo and Greg, will share the car during the season, with Nigel joining for selected races.
"I'm very excited about 2010 and the prospect of racing with both by sons for the first time," said Mansell. "I can confirm that I will be racing with Leo and Greg during the season and, if we receive an entry, we will also be racing at Le Mans."
Mansell shared a Ginetta-Zytek LMP1 with Greg in the LMS round at Silverstone last year. Greg also competed in Formula Renault 3.5, while Leo raced a Team Modena Ferrari F430 GT in the LMS and at Le Mans.
