The former F1 driver turned Sky F1 pundit, Martin Brundle announced he’ll be driving an LMP3 car at Le Mans on the Saturday before Baku race day.
He’ll share the Zak Brown owned United Autosports car usually raced by his son Alex in the European Le Mans Series with co-driver Christian England in an 1 hour support race, perhaps jeopardising his F1 race commentary duties with Sky the following day.
Brundle raced at Le Mans eight times and in 1990 shared the winning Jaguar XJR-12 with Price Cobb and John Nielsen, but perhaps is best known for his role in the astonishing debut winning Bentley team in the early noughties.
“This golden opportunity allows me to drive the full Le Mans circuit again in a prototype racecar,” said Brundle. “It’s always such a pleasure to drive this magnificent circuit.”
