Robbie Kerr has set his sights on making his Le Mans 24 Hours debut a perfect one by claiming LMP2 victory at the wheel of the Barazi-Epsilon Zytek.

Competing alongside Haruki Kurosawa and fellow Le Mans newcomer Adrian Fernandez, the three driver line-up may be sort on Le Mans miles but more than make up for it in racing experience, as shown on the first official test day when they emerged fastest in class.

Indeed, while Fernandez was behind the wheel of that particular lap, all three drivers performed well in the new Zytek 07S/2 and as such go into qualifying and the race as the early favourites, a status Kerr is certainly comfortable with.

"I think the official test day proved that we're here to win," stated Kerr ahead of qualifying. "I've been nothing but impressed with the whole team and I think with Adrian and Haruki we've got a driver line-up to rival the strongest in the field. I can't wait to get back out on track and see what we can achieve."

Although the former Formula 3 Champion has not driven a sportscar since he helped Zytek to pole position at Silverstone back in 2004, he is delighted to be back with the front running Barazi-Epsilon team ahead of the blue riband event of the endurance season.

"It's an amazing opportunity to compete at Le Mans, there's simply no other track like it in the world so I'm personally very happy to be here. We've proved we're competitive but we're also well aware of the challenges that lie ahead - 24 hours is a long time and a lot can happen!"
