Our commitment to quality journalism

We've introduced metered access to AUTOSPORT which will ensure that the majority of our visitors can continue to view the site for free. But we think that is worth a small investment from those who use it most, so that we can continue to send the leading experts in their field to motor racing paddocks all over the world to break the latest news and produce the most compelling interviews and race reports.

Every visitor gets 15 free page views per month. Once you reach the limit you can register to get 60 views or choose one of our value-for-money subscription packages to continue viewing and to get additional access to a range of features including:

  • Unlimited access to AUTOSPORT with news and views from the paddock
  • Enjoy AUTOSPORT+: subscriber-only analysis, comment and top-quality pictures

Gigawave replaced by SAE at Le Mans

Gigawave Motorsport has withdrawn its Aston Martin from this year's Le Mans 24 Hours.

The Essex-based squad, which secured three third places in the FIA GT Series last year, had planned to run its Aston DBR9 in the LM GT1 class at Le Mans in June.

The announcement of its withdrawal came shortly after it signed a technical agreement with NISMO to homologate the new Nissan GTR and develop the car's race programme in the FIA GT series for 2010.

Gigawave's chairman Henry Barcynski said: "It was an honour for Gigawave Motorsport to have been given the opportunity to compete in this year's Le Mans 24 Hour race."

"The 24 Hour race and the Le Mans Series have always been the ultimate challenge for the team, but watch this space because we will be back."

The first reserve on the entry list - Seattle Advanced Engineering - will fill the gap left by Gigawave.

The team will run a Ferrari F430 GT in the GT2 class with actor Patrick Dempsey (famous for his role in Grey's Anatomy) confirmed as part of the driver line-up.
