Pedro is a national and international reference in endurance races and I have no doubts that he is the best solution we could expect to improve even more the team and help the other drivers in a race where experience counts. After six years of consecutive 24H Le Mans participations this is a new challenge for ASM, where we can take advantage of our vast experience in long distance races.” refers António Simões, owner of the Portuguese racing team.
