Driver change for Greaves Motorsport

Greaves Motorsports has recruited Tom Kimber-Smith, who replaces Thor-Christian Ebbesvik.

He will have his first race with the team in the 6 Heures du Castellet (1st to 3rd April), with team-mates Karim Ojjeh and  Gary Chalandon at the wheel of the Nissan powered Zytek Z11SN. At the 24 Hours of Le Mans 2006, he won the GT2 class in the company of Lawrence Tomlinson and Richard Dean, a Panoz Esperante entered by LNT.

Following the terrible events in Japan in recent weeks, Greaves Motorsports also regrets the withdrawal of Haruki Kurosawa, who was to join the team for the 24 Hours of Le Mans 2011. The schedule of Tom Kimber-Smith will not allow him to participate in the French classic. Tthe name of the third driver to join Karim Ojjeh and Gary Chalandon in La Sarthe will be announced later.
