Andy Wallace needs few introductions to sportscar enthusiasts. His name has been top of the league ever since he helped Jaguar to a memorable outright victory in the 1988 Le Mans 24 Hours, co driving with Jan Lammers and Johnny Dumfries. Since then he’s made a total of seventeen appearances at Le Mans, finished on the podium another three times, taken two further class wins, and played a central role in Bentley’s historic return in 2001 and 2002.

One of the most respected names in sportscar racing, British-born Wallace is the only professional racing driver to have won all the major contemporary classics. In an impressive career he has finished on the podium in more than 70 top-ranking events, winning more than thirty, including the Le Mans 24 Hours (1988), the Daytona 24 Hours (1990, 1997, 1999), Sebring 12 Hours (1992, 1993), Silverstone 4 Hours (1995, 1996) and Petit Le Mans (1999). Before all that he was also a star in single-seaters, winning the British Formula 3 title in 1986 with an impressive 11 victories.

In recent years Andy Wallace has been one of the dominant performers in American sportscar racing, mainly at the wheel of the Dyson Racing MG Lola EX257 (right) in the American Le Mans Series. His knowledge of a car so essentially similar to the MG EX264 meant he felt instantly at home in the RML machine, and his contribution to the team's dominant win in the LMP2 category at Le Mans in June 2006 was invaluable.

Another achievement that was tucked neatly under Andy's belt (for almost 7years) was that of having held the speed record for a production-based road car. In March 1998 he achieved 240.14 miles-per-hour (386.5 kph) in a McLaren F1 along the 9 km straight at Volkswagen's Ehra-Lessien test track in Wolfsburg, Germany. (The Bugatti Veyron 16.4 currently holds the production car record at 407.5 km/h or 253.2 mph.)

Despite a lengthy parallel career, often as competitors on track, he and Thomas Erdos had never actually shared a car until Le Mans last year, but both have since agreed that it is an experience they hope to repeat - not only at Le Mans in 2007, but perhaps also in other events. They are clearly well-matched, and work exceptionally well together.

This season Andy is still driving for Dyson Racing in the American Le Mans Series, but the team's weapon of choice has changed. The EX257 has finally been retired from top-level sportscar racing after an impressive six years of competition, and Dyson now fields a pair of Porsche's fabulous LMP2 RS Spyders. Andy shares the #16 Spyder with Butch Leitzinger.
