Ferrari May Return to Le Mans LMP1 Racing

Ferrari could be returning to Le Mans racing in the near future.

Late last year, Ferrari president Luca di Montezemolo revealed that the Italian automaker was evaluating a potential future effort to join Le Mans prototype racing and spy photos have even hinted that the company has already been testing such a race car.

A report has surfaced claiming that Ferrari is preparing an announcement and could be made this Saturday at Circuit de la Sarthe ahead of the 82nd running of the Le Mans 24 Hours race. Fueling the rumor is the fact that Fernando Alonso, Ferrari’s two-time F1 World Champion driver, will be the race starter on Saturday. Alonso has never raced at Le Mans so his presence doesn’t seem coincidental.
