Smith returns to ASM for Le Mans

Guy Smith will join the ASM team's Le Mans 24 Hours line-up for a second year

The Briton, who won Le Mans with Bentley in 2003, took fourth in the LMP2 class with ASM last season, and is excited about the Portuguese team's switch from a Lola chassis to the new Ginetta Zytek for 2009.

"I'm delighted to be going back to Le Mans with the ASM team," said Smith.

"I'll drive a new Zytek which has already proven to be competitive and should give me a great chance of winning the LMP2 class. You cannot underestimate the challenge of the 24 Hour race but I know what it takes to win there and I'm confident that with the package we have we'll be in good shape.

"We had a good run finishing fourth in class at Le Mans last year but I feel the Zytek option will put us in very strong contention."

Smith's main priority this season will be the American Le Mans Series with Dyson Racing, as the team take charge of Mazda's LMP2 programme.
