Motor Sport News - - Racing News -

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.”
