Le Mans 24 Hours: Alonso to start 2014 Le Mans 24 Hours

Fernando Alonso will start the 82nd Le Mans 24 Hours on 14th June at 15.00, it is confirmed.
Ferrari F1 driver Fernando Alonso has been named as the man entrusted with starting this year's Le Mans 24 Hours on 14th June.

The Spaniard, winner of 32 grands prix in an F1 career spanning more than a decade, will become the first driver that is still racing to be given the honour of starting the event in its 82 years.

This honorary role for the Spaniard – who hasn't competed in the Le Mans event - was encouraged by his current employer given the strong links that exist between the ACO and Ferrari, whose 458 Italias will be out to clinch more victories in the LM GTE Pro and GTE AM categories this year.
