Leo Mansell to race Ferrari in GT2

Leo Mansell will drive a Ferrari 430 GT2 in the Le Mans Series and at the Le Mans 24 Hours this year

The 24-year-old son of 1992 world champion Nigel previously raced in British Formula 3 and the Atlantic Championship, and will share the Team Modena entry with regular driver Antonio Garcia for his first season in sportscars.

Modena team principal Graham Schultz said: "We are looking forward to a long relationship with Leo and his partnership with Antonio Garcia should be a very strong one - Antonio has been a key part of Team Modena's international race success.

"Our link with Nigel is exciting, he will bring his huge experience of motorsport to bear on our programme and help us move to a new level."

Nigel Mansell added: "I think Leo is a natural for sportscar racing, he really took to the cars we tested last year. It will be a very exciting season, it will be my first visit to Le Mans and I am looking forward to it."
