Marc VDS will be competing in four different championships this weekend, led by the MotoGP and Moto2 events at Le Mans.

In the MotoGP class Scott Redding will be aiming to build on a promising post-race test at Jerez, while world champion Tito Rabat arrives fresh from his first podium of the year.

"It's been a tough start to the season, but the podium for Tito in Jerez and Scott's performance in the Jerez test immediately after the Spanish Grand Prix shows we're back on track and ready to compete at the front once again," said team principal Michael Bartholemy.

"Le Mans is a track that all our riders like, and one at which we won in 2013 with Redding and in 2014 with Kallio, so we're expecting a strong showing in France this weekend."

Meanwhile the four-wheel side of Marc VDS will be racing at the 24 Hours of N?rburgring and European Le Mans Series 4 Hours of Imola.

"There aren't many motorsport teams with the capability of racing across four championships in three different countries on the same weekend, but the team aren't heading to France, Germany and Italy just to race; we're going there to fight for podium finishes," Bartholemy continued.

"Now that is pretty unique, and a testament to [team owner] Marc van der Straten's passion and commitment to motorsport at the very highest levels."

van der Straten admitted this weekend will present something of a logistical challenge.

"My only problem was deciding which to attend... So in the end I'll take some time in both Germany and France. It's going to be an exciting few days!"
