  • 2009 24 Hours of Le Mans Invite List

    By Steven English Thursday, February 26th 2009, 11:17 GMT

    Peugeot 908 HDi Pescarolo Sport will enter a privateer Peugeot 908 in this year's Le Mans 24 Hours alongside one of their own cars.

    In addition to the respective works Audi and Peugeot teams, the customer 908 and the two Kolles-run R10s mean there will be five Audis and four Peugeots in the LMP1 class this year, as well as potentially three examples of Aston Martin's new prototype.

    Pescarolo finished third behind one Audi and one Peugeot at Le Mans in 2007, but their highest car was only seventh last year behind Audi and Peugeot's three cars each.

    The arrival of the first customer Peugeot LMP1 car is the biggest news of the 2009 Le Mans entry list, which was released by race organiser the ACO this morning.

    The list also features three Porsche RS Spyders in the LMP2 class, with the already-announced Team Essex car joined by entries from FIA GT champions Vitaphone Racing - in their prototype debut - and former Audi LMP squad Team Goh, who took overall victory in 2004.
