Win! The chance to wave the chequered flag at Silverstone

The 2010 Le Mans Series champions will be crowned at the series finale at Silverstone on September 10-12 -- and you could be there to wave the chequered flag.

The unique money-can't buy opportunity is on offer to anyone buying tickets for the Autosport 1000Km of Silverstone between June 14 and July 31 2010.

Every ticket purchased on the day after the blue-riband Le Mans 24 Hours will be automatically entered into a free draw for the chance to watch the Silverstone race alongside top LMP1 squad, Audi Sport Team Joest, and wave the chequered flag as the winning car crosses the finish line.

With its blend of fast cars, glamorous women and vibrant party atmosphere, the climax of the action-packed series will see star names, such as Nigel Mansell, Allan McNish, Giancarlo Fisichella and Nicolas Minassian do battle.

Audi Sport Team Joest lead driver, Allan McNish, said: "The Silverstone race is obviously very important to me as a British driver. I haven't raced there since winning the corresponding race in 2008.

"It's the final round of this year's Le Mans Series and, having won the opening race and placing third in the second, we're likely to be well-placed in the Championship standings despite not contesting some of the other races.

"The additional importance of this year's Silverstone race is that it's the opening round of the inaugural 'Le Mans Intercontinental Cup', which also features the Petit Le Mans race at Road Atlanta (USA) and an event on the Asian continent in November -- both races which I'll be contesting, so I'll be looking for a points haul on 'home' soil."
