Montagny Joins Scott Tucker and Level 5 Level 5 Motorsports and Scott Tucker head into next weekend’s third round of the American Le Mans Series presented by Tequila Patr¢n with a new name amongst its driver line up. Former Formula One and Peugeot Sport driver Franck Montagny will join the team for the six-hour race into the darkness at Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca.
The 34-year-old Frenchman brings not only speed but also a wealth of prototype experience to Level 5 and will be listed to drive both the No. 055 and No. 95 Honda Performance Development ARX-03b P2 entries. Left without a full-time drive after Peugeot’s shocking withdrawal from international sportscar racing just prior to the start of the season, Montagny is excited to be back competing at the highest levels once again.
“I haven’t met Scott yet but I’ve heard a lot about the team because of all their successes over the years so I’m looking forward to getting to know everyone and working with the guys,” says Franck. “Level 5 seems to have achieved all their goals so far and when you join a team like this it’s very motivational; you want to match that success. I have good memories of racing at Laguna Seca but I prefer to always look forward instead of at the past. The track is maybe not Monaco but it’s a great place in the USA, and a good place to shine!”
