Anthony Davidson is hopeful of being fit for this month's AUTOSPORT 6 Hours at Silverstone in the wake of surgery on his collarbone, which was broken in a bicycle accident four weeks ago.
The Peugeot driver needed an operation after being knocked off his bike while cycling at the start of August. He believes he is on course to take his place alongside Sebastien Bourdais in the Intercontinental Le Mans Cup event on September 11.
"I wouldn't say I am confident, but I am hopeful," Davidson told AUTOSPORT. "The pain went down quickly after the operation and rehab is going well.
"If you admit defeat, your brain gives up trying to repair the body. I am trying to stay positive and concentrate on my rehabilitation. I know it's a tall order, but it has been done in the past.
Simon Pagenaud has been named as a third driver in Davidson's car, but will only compete if the Briton is unable to race.
