Former Formula One man, Franck Montagny is moving on from the withdrawal of Peugeot from sports car racing. He has found a new home at Level 5 Motorsports.
"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," Montagny said.
The 34-year-old Frenchman was added to the team's driver line-up for the upcoming six-hour race presented at Laguna Seca, round 3 of the American Le Mans Series. He will pilot the team's LMP2 Andretti-Green Racing Acura ARX-01B.
"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!" Montagny added.
His new boss, Scott Tucker, was equally excited at the prospect of the race.
"Franck comes with a great pedigree," he said.
"I don't believe it will take any time at all for him to adjust to the P2 HPD and to our Dunlop tires. We know we have a very competitive package and we're confident that our driver line-up can't be bettered, but we know the race will be tough, as always."
Championship leaders in the P2 category, Level 5 Motorsports will be trying to make it three of three as far as victory goes this season at Laguna Seca.
