Hiroaki Ishiura was unable to take place in the Toyota due to a back complaint. During the first tests of the TS030 HYBRID, Hiroaki experienced discomfort in his back due to the higher g-forces experienced in an LMP1 car.
Sarrazin has large experience in endurance racing as his first race was in a Courage Pescarolo at the 1000km of Spa in 2003. Since 2007 Sarrazin was driver for the Peugeot Sport squad until Peugeot had to resigned at the beginning of this year.
Earlier this week the ACO announced the line-up for the 24 hours race where Sarrazin was confirmed at Starworks Motorsport. His seat in Starkworks’ HPD ARX03 Honda will be taken over by Tom Kimber-Smith to complete their driver Line-up for Le Mans.
