Fisichella to race Ferrari in Le Mans Series

UPDATE As reported a few days ago, Giancarlo Fisichella has entered the 2010 Le Mans Series alongside his role as test driver for the Scuderia Ferrari. Fisichella will be racing alongside former F1 driver Jean Alesi in a GT2 class Ferrari F430 from the AF Corse team.

02/01/10 (GMM) Giancarlo Fisichella has signed up to contest the Le Mans Series in 2010.

The 37-year-old is a veteran of 231 grands prix since 1996, but he will be Ferrari's reserve driver this season.

However, the Automobile Club de l'Ouest's Le Mans Series said on Monday that Fisichella will contest "the whole season" of the endurance sports car calendar in 2010.

A full entry list will be published within days, but it emerges that he will drive a Ferrari F430 with AF Corse in the LMGT2 category.

Two Le Mans Series races clash with F1 rounds in 2010: May 9's 1000km of Spa (Spanish GP), and the 1000km of Silverstone (Italian GP) in September.
