Darryl O'Young will fulfil a childhood dream when he takes the start at next month's Le Mans 24-hour race in France. The reigning Porsche Carrera Cup Asia champion's season became more exciting when he was confirmed to take part in the famous endurance race from June 13-14 as part of Hong Kong's first entry in the race. O'Young has been named the number one driver for the Endurance Asia Team, which also includes Frenchman Philippe Hesnault and Bulgaria's Plamen Kralev who will be in a Porsche 911 GT3 RSR 997 competing in the GT2 category. O'Young will be the second Hong Kong driver at the race as 2004 Porsche Carrera Cup Asia champion Matthew Marsh has also confirmed his entry, driving for German team Kruse-Schiller Motorsport in the Prototype 2 category. These are exciting times for O'Young, who, apart from defending his Carrera Cup title with Team Jebsen, is also competing in the FIA GT Championship in Europe. 'Le Mans is going to be the biggest race of my career and this is my biggest season so far,' enthused 29-year-old O'Young. 'We tried going to Le Mans in 2005 but the team never got an entry, which is the hard part because a lot of teams want to enter Le Mans. It's been a childhood dream to race there.' O'Young doesn't expect his team to compete for honours next month, but hopes to be competitive and his experience should augur well for July's Spa 24-hour race in Belgium, where he will take part for the second time. 'We're not a factory-backed team at Le Mans so we don't expect to be right there at the finish with the top teams. We're the underdogs. But the experience should come in handy as I intend to compete in Spa as well and we should be more prepared for that,' he said. 'We hope to get a strong performance at Le Mans and hopefully finish the race because it's a very tough race and anything can happen.' Meanwhile, Marsh will compete in his second Le Mans and his first since 2007. Two years ago, he finished 52nd overall and 11th in his class after retiring following 252 laps. Marsh has been named the number two driver in his team, joining Japan's Hideki Noda and British driver Jean de Pourtales in the Le Mans prototype Lola B05/40.
