LNT Signs Bell
dailysportscar.comOne GT drive, one win: that’s Rob Bell’s record in our type of racing – but with the news that he’s signed to drive for Team LNT in the Le Mans Series this year, he’ll be aiming to add to that record.

Team LNT will race two Panoz Esperantes in the LMS, and the four drivers will be Bell, team owner Lawrence Tomlinson, Warren Hughes and Richard Dean.

“Rob will be a great asset to the driver line up at LNT,” said LNT MD Richard Dean. “We tested with him in Nogaro back in November with the Panoz and he was on the pace immediately. Both Alan Mugglestone and I have worked with Rob in Formula Ford and Formula Renault before, so we are already well aware of his ability and speed. Rob now has the opportunity to show his ability in sports cars while
contributing to our ambitions of winning with the Panoz and proving this car’s potential.”

Rob Bell is pictured on the top step of the podium at the Nurburgring, with Darren Turner, after the pair’s GT1 victory in the Convers Team Aston Martin.

Team LNT continues with an extensive testing programme in the UK and Europe throughout February and March, before taking part at Sebring next month. The team enjoyed a successful test there at the end of January - although Lawrence Tomlinson's ribs took a pounding.
