Caterham withdraws Le Mans 24 Hours entry

First withdrawal confirmed.

Only hours after being announced as a reserve entry in the ACO's selection for the 2014 Le Mans 24 Hours, Caterham has pulled its entry for this year's classic endurance race.

The team's statement:

"After making its Le Mans 24 Hours debut in 2013, Caterham had considered campaigning in the famous race again.

"However, after securing only a reserve slot on the Le Mans 24 Hours grid and with many other important engineering programmes already underway, the decision was taken to withdraw."

The listed driver on the Caterham entry, American Chris Dyson, will now move to the Greaves Nissan entry, already a primary selection for the race in June. He joins Tom Kimber-Smith in the #41 car. The two teams, running Zyteks, ran in cooperation last year at Le Mans and the plan was to renew their efforts for 2014.
