Mowlem to race at Le Mans

Johnny Mowlem: I'm absolutely delighted to be joining HVM Status GP, especially as it's rare to get a top-line Le Mans drive this late in the day
Johnny Mowlem has completed the HVM Status GP driver line-up for next month's Le Mans 24 Hours.

Mowlem, who has raced eight times in the famous French endurance event, joins Tony Burgess and Jonathan Hirschi in HVM Status GP's Lola-Judd B12/80 Coupe, which competes in the LMP2 class.

Mowlem is the current leader of the European Le Mans Series GTE class in his RAM Racing Ferrari after winning in the second round at Imola earlier this month.

HVM Status GP made its first endurance race start of the 2013 season in the Imola race, with Burgess and Hirschi driving as part of the team's Le Mans preparations.

Mowlem has co-driven with both Burgess and Hirschi before. He linked up with Canadian Burgess in an LMP1 Lola in the 2010 American Le Mans Series, with the duo finishing third at Mosport. Mowlem also shared a factory Lotus GTE with Hirschi in the 2011 ILMC Championship.

“I'm absolutely delighted to be joining HVM Status GP,” said Mowlem, “especially as it's rare to get a top-line Le Mans drive this late in the day. But we've been in touch for a while and I'm very happy the deal has come off.

“We know what our strengths are and we will play to them. Le Mans is a race where it's very important to stay out of trouble. If we can run reliably at a strong race pace then we have a good chance of a class podium.

“We have the Le Mans Test Day and of course the week of the race to prepare. I'm confident that by the time of the race we'll be in good shape for a strong performance.”
