A Devon racing driver will contest the world's toughest & most famous sportscar race and is hoping for class honours.
An invited entry of 54-cars will contest the 82nd running of the gruelling Le Mans 24 hour sportscar endurance race that sees Sidmouth-based Tincknell plus Simon Dolan and Marc Gené racing the JOTA Sport Zytek Z11SN in the LM P2 category.
The demanding 8.47-mile circuit consisting of closed 'public' roads combined with a permanent race track section will see cars reach speeds of up to 190mph.
Exeter-born Tincknell embarked on his maiden sportscar season in 2014 after multiple wins in the FIA European and British Formula Three Championships since 2011 following a successful start to his motor racing career in karting throughout Europe.
