Porsche factory driver Sascha Maassen will return to the American Le Mans Series this season, hoping to repeat his 2006 LMP2 co-championship. Maassen, of Raeren, Belgium, will drive the No. 6 Penske Racing Porsche RS Spyder with Ryan Briscoe of Indianapolis, Ind.

"I thank Porsche and Penske for allowing me to defend my championship and I'm really happy to be part of the whole program again, as it is the best program I've ever been involved in," Maassen said.

"I'm very happy that Ryan and I are going to drive together. He's quick, he's a nice guy, easy to get along with -- I haven't found a weak point. I'm looking forward to a great season with a lot more competition than last year; it seems that we have attracted some other teams to join the championship."

Maassen will participate in a series test at Sebring International Raceway in Sebring, Fla., this week, in preparation for the Mobil 1 Twelve Hours of Sebring, which opens the ALMS season on March 17.
