Canadian John Graham will make his 8th start at Le Mans on November 9th in the inaugural Le Mans 1000KM. Graham will drive for Intersport in the newly acquired Riley & Scott MK111C LMP 900 prototype, with Americans Clint Fields and Rick Sutherland.
The 42 car field will consist of 4 classes, including 17 prototypes, competing for the overall win. This new event will also have a major impact for 2004 as it will secure 9 qualifying places for the 24 Hours of Le Mans, 3 in LMP 900 and GTP, 2 in LMP 675, 1 in GTS and 3 in GT.
In 2000, John drove for Multimatic in the LMP 675 class with fellow Canadians Scott Maxwell and Greg Wilkins. Their class victory was the first by a Canadian team at the 24 Hours of Le Mans.
Testing for the event starts November 4th on the Bugatti circuit. For more event information, check out www.lemans.org.
