Herbert gets an Aston Martin

Johnny Herbert, the former F1 driver and Le Mans 24 Hours winner, is returning to Le Mans this summer with the Prodrive-run factory Aston Martin team. Herbert will join other ex-F1 men Tomas Enge and David Brabham in the team alongside Peter Kox, Darren Turner and Rickard Rydell.

One of the DBR9s will be shared by Enge, Herbert and Kox, the other by Brabham, Rydell and Turner. The Herbert car will be numbered 007, a reference to Aston Martin's link with the James Bond movies.
