LNT Automotive has joined forces with IndyCar team Conquest Racing to run a Ginetta-Zytek LMP1 in the Petit Le Mans at Road Atlanta.
A week on from the announcement that British sportscar-maker Ginetta's parent company had bought a 40 per cent stake in Zytek Engineering, LNT has sourced Conquest to provide the project with personnel, engineering and logistical support.
The car will be driven by Danny Watts and a second driver still to be announced.
While this will be Conquest's first venture into the American Le Mans Series, the team is hoping to learn as much as they can about it with hopes of eventually having a bigger presence in the series in the near future.
"We're very pleased to support and help the LNT Zytek Group for the Petit Le Mans race," said Conquest team owner Eric Bachelart.
"We are definitely looking to get involved in the American Le Mans Series in 2009 on top of our IndyCar Series program and this is a great opportunity to learn about the series from the inside."
