Embassy Racing has announced its driver line-up for the 2008 Le Mans 24 Hours, with Warren Hughes, Jonny Kane and Joey Foster set to share driving duties in the lone WF01 entered into the race.

The team will be entering the biggest sportscar race of them all for the first time having debuted the WF01 this season in the Le Mans Series - scoring its first points as a constructor during the second round of the year at Monza.

"An entry into the Le Mans 24 Hours is the most exciting opportunity for any sportscar racing team," team boss Jonathan France said. "It is, without exception, the world's most prestigious and charismatic motor race and I needed a driver line-up that would give us the best chance of doing well.

"The three drivers in Warren, Jonny and Joey represent our strongest possible trio and I have every faith in their ability to produce class leading driving performances. Also, as an independent all British based constructor and with our close relationship to Triumph, the iconic British motorbike manufacturer, I felt it important that this was reflected in those stepping into the car at this year's Le Mans."

While Hughes and Kane have both competed at Le Mans in the past to great success, next month's big event will mark the first appearance at La Sarthe for single-seater convert Foster - who was understandably pleased to be given the nod.

"This is a dream come true for me," he said. "I am very grateful to Jonathan and everyone at Embassy who have shown incredible faith and belief in my driving ability. I am blown away by the opportunity but feel that I am up to the task and will do all I can to match the speed and consistency of my more experienced team-mates."
