Guy Martin to race WEC 24 Hours of Le Mans

"At this stage it's a one-off appearance for Guy in WEC, although there is already sufficient interest in making this a permanent arrangement for Guy in 2014" - Philip Neill.
Guy Martin is to enter the 24 Hours of Le Mans, the final round of the 2013 World Endurance Championship, riding for the R2CL Suzuki team.

The Englishman - who took at hat-trick of race wins at this year's Metzeler Ulster Grand Prix - will drive straight to France following next weekend's Scarborough Gold Cup and is very much looking forward to the experience.

"Top job boy!” said Martin. “I thought the job was done and dusted after Scarborough next weekend with the Tyco boys, so to get a chance to do some World Endurance racing down in France is mega.

“It's something I always believed would be beneficial and a lot more interesting for me than general short circuit stuff. I'm mega-chuffed and the drive to France should be a decent road trip."

Martin's Tyco Suzuki team manager Philip Neill, who arranged the link-up between Martin and the French R2CL outfit for the September 20-21 event, added: "After Guy's recent run of success at the Southern 100 and Ulster Grand Prix, we discussed the potential with Suzuki GB to have Guy involved with a Suzuki-supported WEC programme.

"Thankfully the task wasn't too difficult to set up and an option with the R2CL team was instantly made available with the support of Suzuki France. At this stage it's a one-off appearance for Guy in WEC, although there is already sufficient interest in making this a permanent arrangement for Guy in 2014."
