Martin Brundle to join son in Le Mans drive

Martin Brundle is poised to get back behind the wheel of a high-performance racing vehicle.

The former Formula One driver, who currently serves as a commentator for the BBC's F1 coverage, is set to race in the Le Mans 24-Hour event in a Nissan-powered Greaves Motorsport Zytek.

Now 52, the race ace will team up with 21-year-old son Alex in a bid for class victory.

He commented: "I'm very much looking forward to returning to the Le Mans 24-Hour race with Nissan and the Greaves Motorsport LMP2 team. This is an unexpected pleasure, heightened by the fact I will be team-mates with my son.

"I'm eagerly anticipating a very special feeling when handing the car over to Alex during one of the world's greatest motor races. Class victory in front of the fanatical Le Mans spectators is the goal."

Le Mans is no stranger to father-son teams, with Mario Andretti having raced alongside son Michael and Nigel Mansell having teamed up with sons Leo and Greg.
