British based Creation Autosportif racing team have recently received conformation that it has been awarded one of the prestigious 2005 Le Mans entries for its DBA 03S-Judd prototype.

An initial list of 34 selected entries has been published by the Automobile Club de l'Ouest (ACO) and Creation has been included primarily on the strength of its performances in the 2004 Le Mans Endurance Series

The selection process is rigid to ensure a quality field, entries are over-subscribed and therefore highly sought after. The final entry list for the 50 cars that will be eligible to start the race will be published at the end of March.

Despite being less than 3 years old, the team, formed by Michael Jankowski and Ian Bickerton, has proven its worth both on and off the track over the last 12 months with two pole positions and strong race challenges in the LMES championship.

For 2005 the team has changed to Judd engines and Michelin tyres, as well as completing a rigorous winter testing programe.

The DBA will be driven by Frenchman Nicolas Minassian, Briton Jamie Campbell-Walter and a yet-to-be-announced third driver. Testing is currently being undertaken by Creation prior to its first race at Spa in April.
