Tom Coronel joins Spyker Squadron

Spyker has confirmed the first driver of their 2009 Le Mans Series line-up. 36-year old Dutchman Tom Coronel will race the team’s Spyker C8 Laviolette GT2R in the five races of the Le Mans Series as well as the Le Mans 24 Hours in June. The second driver is still to be announced.

Coronel has raced for Spyker in several races in the last couple of years, most recently in the final Le Mans Series race at Silverstone in September of 2008. He will combine his Le Mans Series campaign with his fifth consecutive year in the FIA WTCC in which he races a Seat.

The Dutchman will be joined by another experienced driver as his team mate. Spyker Squadron has confirmed it is still negotiating with several other drivers. including Spyker regulars Peter Dumbreck and Ralf Kelleners. A formal announcement regarding the full line-up for 2009 is expected next month at the 79th International Motor Show in Geneva. This would mean the line-up would be complete prior to the Le Mans Series Official Test Days at the Paul Ricard HTTT circuit in France.
