Heidfeld to contest Le Mans 24 Hours

Nick Heidfeld will compete in the famous Le Mans 24 Hours and two further 2012 world endurance championship races for Swiss team Rebellion Racing.

The team said in a statement Wednesday that Heidfeld, 34, would share a Lola-Toyaota car with Nicolas Prost and Neel Jani at the 80th edition of the Le Mans race, the Sebring 12 Hours and Spa 6 Hours.

"I am really looking forward to this new challenge ... Since I did Le Mans in 1999 I always knew that I wanted to come back to endurance racing. I am very happy to join Rebellion Racing and hope I can help building up on their already impressive achievements," said Heidfeld.

Heidfeld made his F1 debut in 2000 but was dropped midway through the 2011 season by Lotus-Renault, where he took the place of injured Robert Kubica. He did not get a 2012 contract at an F1 team.
