Lucas Ordoņez, the Spaniard who won the inaugural Nissan GT Academy, and raced with us at Pembrey is the second driver with WRDA connections to enter the 2011 Le Mans 24hr race, in a Nissan-powered LMP2 machine entered by Signatech. (WRDA member Andy Meyrick has been signed as a works driver with Aston Martin in LMP1-see separate story)

Lucas finished 2nd in class in the 12 Hours of Sebring and he has full LeMans Cup schedule ahead of him this year, including the 24 Hours of LeMans in June. After singling himself out of a field of 25,000 GT Academy contestants, Ordoņez's first International race was at the 2009 Dubai 24 Hours, where he drove a Nissan 350Z like the one he raced at Pembrey, but LMP2 is a completely different beast than GT cars. We'll keep you updated on his progress. or you can checkout his website http://www.lucasordonez.com/
