Dario Franchitti will race a Le Mans prototype for the first time since 2009 when he joins the Level 5 LMP2 squad for Petit Le Mans at Road Atlanta in October. The three-time Indianapolis 500 winner and four-time IndyCar champion will share one of the Level 5 HPD-ARX-03bs with younger brother Marino, who raced for the squad at Petit in 2011, and team boss Scott Tucker, in the 1000-mile American Le Mans Series finale on October 20. It will be the elder Franchitti’s first start in an LMP prototype since racing for the Highcroft Acura team at the same event in 2009

The DeltaWing has retired from the Le Mans 24 Hours after it’s contact with the #7 Toyota in the seventh hour of the race. The innovative Nissan-powered machine, which has become a crowd favourite this week, had suffered a few early issues but was back in the running when it was tagged by Kazuki Nakajima as the race restarted following a lengthy safety car period. The impact, which came at the Porsche Curves, shunted Satoshi Motoyama into the wall.

American Le Mans Series champion team Highcroft Racing has withdrawn its Le Mans 24 Hours entry and ended its partnership with Honda. The team, which won the 2009 and 2010 ALMS titles, had not been able to put together a full-season package for 2011 so far, but finished second in the Sebring 12 Hours with the latest HPD LMP1 car. Although it had expected to run the car at Le Mans as well, team boss Duncan Dayton said the impact of the recent earthquake and tsunami in Japan had reduced the financial support available from Honda and meant the Le Mans 24 Hours programme was no longer viable.

The #8 Peugeot of Stephane Sarrazin, Pedro Lamy and Franck Montagny continues to lead the Sebring 12 Hours into the final three hours, though it has been unable to shake off the ORECA Peugeot and Highcroft HPD. Despite the other Peugeot and both Audis being severely delayed in earlier incidents, the remaining factory Peugeot has not had things all its own way in the second half of the race. At the nine-hour mark, Sarrazin is only six seconds ahead of Loic Duval in the ORECA car, with David Brabham’s HPD also on the lead lap
March 19th, 2011
The new Peugeot 908 HDi driven by Franck Montagny, Stephane Sarrazin and Pedro Lamy led the Sebring 12 Hours at the halfway point. The leading 908, which held a narrow advantage under yellow flags on the six-hour mark, was the only one of the four factory turbodiesels entered by Peugeot and Audi to reach the halfway stage without problems. The two Audi R15+ TDIs and the second new 908 were all involved in incidents resulting in major delays.

Peugeot is running one-two in the Sebring 12 Hours at one quarter distance, although the lead keeps changing hands with all the frontrunners on slightly different pit strategies. The #7 Peugeot had the advantage after three hours, with Anthony Davidson holding a 23-second cushion over Stephane Sarrazin after the latter’s recent pitstop. Davidson’s next stop is due soon

The old-specification ORECA Peugeot set a surprise fastest time in the final practice session before qualifying for the Sebring 12 Hours. Audi had looked set to lead the way until ORECA’s Loic Duval put in a 1m48.704s right at the end of the session to take the quickest time by a second.

February 10th, 2011
Reigning American Le Mans Series champion team Highcroft Racing says it is close to committing to a title defence, after announcing that it will definitely contest the Sebring 12 Hours and Le Mans 24 Hours with the latest LMP1 HPD. Highcroft’s plans for 2011 had been uncertain over the winter, with lead driver David Brabham admitting he was keeping his options open in case Duncan Dayton’s squad was unable to put a programme together for the season
January 20th, 2011
American Le Mans Series champion team Highcroft is keen to be part of HPD’s new LMP1 programme, but team boss Duncan Dayton says nothing is currently finalised for the squad’s 2011 campaign. Highcroft won the ALMS LMP1 title in 2009 and the temporarily combined prototype category last year, both with Acura/HPD machinery. It has continued to work with Honda and has conducted several tests of the new HPD LMP2 engine
January 15th, 2011
American Le Mans Series title-winner David Brabham says he is open to approaches for the 2011 season as he is not yet sure that Highcroft will be able to put a programme together. Racing for Highcroft in the ALMS has been Brabham’s primary focus for the past four years, though he also won the 2009 Le Mans 24 Hours with Peugeot and took GT1 class wins with Aston Martin in the preceding two seasons. Though he emphasised that his preference was to stay on with Highcroft and aim for a third straight ALMS crown, Brabham said nothing was certain at present
