LAMY RELISHES RETURN TO PROTOTYPES AT LE MANS

Although a bulk of his motorsport career has been in GT, Touring and open- wheel cars (including 32 Formula 1 starts), Pedro Lamy came into his new position as a factory Peugeot driver with a tremendous amount of experience.

The Portuguese pilot compiled an extensive prototype experience from 1998- 2003 with strong efforts in cars such as Mercedes, ORECA's Chrysler prototype and BMW's V12 LMR, which he raced twice in the American Le Mans Series in 1999.

"It is easy to jump in the Peugeot and drive it well," Lamy said. "But I enjoyed driving the BMW, which was the winning car at Le Mans in 1999. The aerodynamic detail is the biggest difference. The tires also have gotten better since then. If you started comparing them side by side, there would be a large difference."
