Beechdean reveals Le Mans 24 line-up
Beechdean Aston Martin Racing has revealed its driver line-up for this year’s Le Mans 24 Hours.
Team boss Andrew Howard will reunite with fellow British GT regular and ex-british touring car driver Liam Griffin, who he competed with in the Aston Martin Festival race at Le Mans last season.
They will be joined by reigning European Le Mans Series champion and Swiss driver Gary Hirsch, who will race a GT car for the first time since 2011.
This year marks Beechdean’s first entry into the GTE Am division of the race, having previously contested the LMP1 element in a Ginetta-zytek GZ09S with Nigel Mansell and his sons in 2010.
Howard said: “To be taking part in the ultimate endurance race for the first time is amazing. The Le Mans 24-hour race is every driver’s goal.”
