2011 Le Mans Test Day
Podium objective for LM‐GTE AM
For its 11th participation at the Le Mans 24 Hours, JMB Racing will be racing in LM GTE‐AM with a Ferrari 430 GT2, aiming for the Top 3 in this category.
The Monaco team will have at their disposal the fully updated F430 chassis n°2626. Its high level of performance was clearly evident at the recent 12H of Sebring, where the team Giancarlo Fisichella and Gianmaria Bruni started in pole position in the category LM‐GTE PRO, lead the race for 7 hours and finished in fifth place.
The driver Manu Rodrigues, already with JMB Racing in 2009, will participate in the classic Mancelle Race for the 3rd time running in June 2011. For Jean‐Marc Ménahem this will be his first appearance at this event. The third driver will be announced shortly.
Tristan Gommendy and Nicolas will be present at the Test Day on 24 April, one to provide his expertise, the other to learn the track.
JMB Racing will also enter a Formula Le Mans during the Test Day, to give the drivers Olivier Lombard, John Hartshorne and Philippe Mondolot an opportunity to drive on the iconic circuit of the Le Mans 24 Hours in view of a future participation.
