Creation names Le Mans trio

The Creation Autosportif team has completed its line-up for next month's Le Mans 24 Hours.

Frenchman Romain Iannetta will come into the team's line-up for the event alongside Creation regular Jamie Campbell-Walter and female ace Vanina Ickx in what will be his first La Sarthe start in the premier class.

“I am glad to drive for the fourth time in the most important endurance race in the world,” Iannetta, who has previously competed in both LMP2 and GT2, said. “Going for Le Mans with Creation Autosportif represents a huge opportunity for me. The team has proved many times at being competitive and reliable in endurance racing and especially at Le Mans. With the Judd 5.5 engine the Creation package allows us to expect to finish 77th 24 Heures du Mans with a good result.

“I am also happy to share the car with my team-mates, Jamie Campbell-Walter and Vanina Ickx. They are both experienced in prototype racing and they will represent an additional strength to me. It will be my first year behind the wheel of an LMP1, so I am looking forward to discover the car during the coming test days in England."

Creation's Andy Woolgar was also delighted to see the team's line-up for Le Mans completed.

“I am very pleased to have Romain with Creation Autosportif,” he said. “He brings an understated quality as a reliable, quick thinking driver to an already well-formed package. As a team Romain's inclusion completes what we believe to be a strong entry for this year's race. What we have is a very well prepared car, excellent and trusted engine package, and three very well matched drivers.”
