The Spanish motorbike driver, Alfonso Nieto, better known as Fonsi, is starting a new career this year in the Le Mans Series races. The ex-champion of Spain in 125cc and winner of many 250cc World Championship races (he was even vice-champion in 2002) is now taking on four wheeled machines!

Indeed, he will take the start of the 1000 km of Algarve in two weeks time behind the wheel of an LMP2 entered by Iberian team Q8 Oils Hache. The crew members will be 100% Spanish … and one third feminine!

Fonsi will be sharing the relays with his compatriots Maximo Cortes and a newcomer to Endurance, Carmen Jorda. The young lady, who is also the motorbike pilot's girlfriend, started racing in Formula 3 and now combines her racing career with marketing studies as well as posing for many magazines …

Gentlemen, you have been warned!
