Mika Hakkinen To Make Le Mans Debut


We have a lot of time for double Formula One world champion Mika Hakkinen. Beyond simply being a top class driver, he is a very well mannered man and that always scores highly in our books. Despite leaving Formula One in 2001, the Finn has been relatively inactive in other forms of motorsport, yet keeps busy managing other drivers. His next challenge is the Le Mans series.

His links with Mercedes-Benz will see him behind the wheel of a glorious SLS AMG GT3 car for the 1,000KM of Zhuhai in China. This is part of the Intercontinental Le Mans Cup and represents a new challenge for Mika as he has yet to try his hand at sports car racing. The V12 racer has been shown to be competitive within its class and so the addition of a world class driver such as Hakkinen makes for an interesting time out on track.
