Harold Primat will team up again with the Creation team to launch an assault for glory in the upcoming Petit Le Mans at Road Atlanta.

The Swiss driver has raced with the team in the endurance classic for the last two seasons, finishing fourth overall in 2006 before finishing second in the LMP1 class in 2007.

Primat comes to the team after a season racing in the Le Mans Series for Pescarolo Sport, the combination of himself and Christophe Tinseau finishing 13th in the standings and as one of the highest placed petrol-powered teams.

Naturally, Primat is excited at the opportunity of taking part in one of the most revered endurance races for Creation once again, where he will partner Jamie Campbell-Walter and Stephen Simpson.

"It's a very exciting project and I'm delighted to be part of it," he said. "I've raced with the team several times before in the USA and we've always had good results together. I see no reason why that can't continue at Petit Le Mans. Jamie and I have driven together many times before and I hear good things about Stephen too, so we're in confident mood ahead of the race.

"After Sebring, Petit Le Mans is the biggest race on the American Le Mans Series calendar and it ranks highly on my list of objectives for this year. The grid is exceptional in the prototype class, with huge manufacturer involvement from Peugeot, Audi, Porsche and Acura, and that adds a lot of prestige to the race.

"I know the boys at Creation very well and their ambitions are the same as mine, so we'll go to the States looking to challenge for honours. It will also be good to showcase my partners Banque Baring Brothers Sturdza and Crans Montana in the US and I want to finish the season well as a thank you for their support this year."
