Chrysler Team ORECA has finalised its driving line-up for this year's Le Mans 24-hours.

Chrysler's number 14 LMP will be driven by Portuguese driver Ni Amorim, sharing with Japanese Seiji Ara and Masahiko Kondo. Four-time Le Mans winner Yannick Dalmas will share the number 15 car with Stephane Sarrazin and Franck Montagny, while Olivier Beretta shares the number 16 car with two drivers with whom he won FIA GT Championship titles, Pedro Lamy (1998) and Karl Wendlinger (1999, 2000).

Lamy drove the Chrysler LMP at a recent test at Magny Cours, and impressed the team. "He got down to some very fast lap times very quickly," said ORECA Sporting Director Pierre Dieudonne.

The three Mopar 6-litre V8-powered Chrysler LMPs will line up on the grid for the 69th edition of the Le Mans 24 hours, that takes place on June 16/17.
