The track legend to take on a new challenge

Sir Chris Hoy may be used to seconds of flat-out sprinting in the velodrome but he'll be taking on a whole new challenge this summer as he competes in the Le Mans 24 hour endurance car race.

The 40-year-old Scot will compete in the second tier class at the prestigious French event this summer. Along with two teammates he will be driving a Nissan-powered Ligier JS P2 car at the Circuit de la Sarthe.
