Booth, Lowdon launch Le Mans team

Former Manor F1 chiefs John Booth and Graeme Lowdon are continuing their motor racing adventure in Le Mans endurance sports cars.

No longer involved with the backmarker F1 team, the duo have re-launched 'Manor Motorsport' - whose Twitter handle is 'RealManor' - for a Le Mans foray.

The governing FIA has accepted the team's entry for the 2016 world endurance championship, including the fabled Le Mans 24 hour race, where Manor will field an LMP2 prototype.

"We knew we had to come back," Lowdon said at the Cass Business School in London.

"We saw the highest highs in F1 and the lowest lows, but this is a fresh start and we can't wait to go racing," he added.
