For the third year in succession the team will contest the world's greatest endurance race with a pair of Nissan powered Zytek prototypes.

Greaves Motorsport is pleased to announce that it has received a second invitation from the Automobile Club de l'Ouest to participate in the 2014 edition of the 24 Hours of Le Mans.

For the third year in succession the team will contest the world's greatest endurance race with a pair of Nissan powered Zytek prototypes, competing in the LM P2 category. Running on Dunlop tyres the team will aim to improve on their podium finish in the 2013 race, and repeat their victory of 2011.

Three time Le Mans class winner, Tom Kimber-Smith and ALMS Champion, Chris Dyson have already been confirmed by the team for the race. Of the six seats available five are already filled, with several interested parties in discussion with the team regarding the final position. As always talent and a budget are are prerequisite.

Team Principal, Tim Greaves: “We are very excited about the prospects for the race, especially now with two cars. We do feel for the teams that are struggling to get their budgets together. We have competed for the past two seasons in the FIA World Endurance Championship and know only too well that this is a very tough business.

In the 2013 Le Mans 24 Hours the Nissan sponsored car finished third in the toughest and most exciting race that I have ever been involved with, either as a driver or Team Principal. In fact winning in 2011 seemed relatively easy compared with the 2013 race. Each year brings new challenges and this one will not different.

We still have opportunities to race the cars in other Le Mans Series around the globe and would welcome any enquiries.”

Team Manager, Jacob Greaves: “This is the best possible news from the ACO. We have a 100% finishing record when running two cars at Le Mans and we have had podiums over the past few years at the race and we would like to add to that record. We have a package that we feel will be highly competitive and we have the experience and ability to turn that potential into a good result.”
