Karun Chandhok will create history this weekend by becoming the first Indian driver to start the historic Le Mans 24 hours race at the La Sarthe circuit in the North of France. The Le Mans 24 hours race, part of the FIA World Endurance Championship, is also widely regarded as part of the Triple Crown of Motorsport, along with the F1 Monaco Grand Prix and the Indianapolis 500.
This will be a first not only for Karun, but also for his JRM Team, who are making their debut in the Le Mans 24 hours race. JRM Racing will enter its Honda HPD ARX-03a in the Le Mans Prototype 1 (LMP1) class, with former winner David Brabham and Peter Dumbreack joining Chandhok at the wheel. Brabham will be racing here for the 18th time while Dumbreck will have his 5th go at the famous venue.
