Aston Martin Racing has added Portuguese driver Miguel Ramos to its LMP1 line-up for 2009. Ramos will join Aston Martin Racing Works drivers, Jan Charouz (CZ), Tomas Enge (CZ), Stefan Mucke (DE), Harold Primat (CH) and Darren Turner (GB).

Aston Martin Racing announced in January that it will make the move from GT1 to the LMP1 category and will compete in the full Le Mans Series and at the Le Mans 24 Hours with a two car team.

Ramos began his racing career in 1991 and has competed in the FIA GT Championship for five of the past six years and at Le Mans twice, most recently in 2005. Although new to Aston Martin Racing and the LMP1 category, Ramos drove a DBR9 in 2006 for Aston Martin Racing BMS.

"We are delighted to have Miguel with us this year and look forward to integrating him into the team," said Team Principal George Howard-Chappell.

"I am pleased to be joining Aston Martin Racing," said Ramos. "I'm sure that the new car will be competitive and I am looking forward to the challenge of moving from GT1 to LMP1."
