Philippe Lenain, of Phnom Penh's own Indochine Insurance, will be behind the wheel
of a Porsche 944 Turbo GT2 at this year's Daytona 24 Hour sportscar championship.
Lenain, who entered last year with an Oldsmobile Cutlass and finished 79th out of
80 entries, expects to to do better this year.
"This time I hope the engine will last at least until the night time,"
Lenain said, according to a press release.
The race will take place on Jan 31, with Lenain entering with the sponsorship of
Shell, Indochine Insurance and TV 3.
Lenain, 35, who has been racing since the age of 18, says his ultimate goal is to
promote auto racing in Cambodia, and that after he returns to Phnom Penh he will
introduce go-kart racing to the Kingdom.
