Larbre returns to LMS

Larbre Competition has confirmed that it will return to the Le Mans Series for the 2009 season with a single-car entry into the GT1 class.

The team, which has been a stalwart of the series since its creation in 2004, will campaign a Saleen S7R during the season ahead with an all-French line-up of Patrick Bornhauser, David Hallyday and Patrice Goueslard named for the opening race of the year.

Larbre started the 2008 campaign running in the LMS and secured a class podium finish in Barcelona before electing to focus on its commitments in the FIA GT Championship and the French GT series.

Now however, the focus will be on the LMS for the new campaign while an entry has also been lodged for the Le Mans 24 Hours in the summer.

“The team is delighted to be returning to the Le Mans Series,” team boss Jack Leconte said. “We are long-term supporters of the LMS and have enjoyed great success with them over the past few years.

“As well as defending our French GT crown and racing at the Le Mans 24 Hours we will have a very exciting sporting programme in 2009.”
