One of the ex Dyson Lola B06/10 LMP1 cars will race in this seasons ALMS it was revealed today.

Team Cytosport, led by US racing veteran Greg Pickett are set to make their series debut at Long Beach in April.

Several test sessions will take place in California and Arizona before the team joins the series. Pickett himself is scheduled to drive the car himself, together with experienced sportscar racer Klaus Graf. The German was a front running single seater driver in the early 1990's before making a name for himself in sportscars, driving a Panoz Spyder with Mauro Baldi and John Nielsen in the 2000 Le Mans 24 Hours and the FIA Sportscar Championship.

Speaking to Lola about the deal, Graf said. “I am very pleased that I could make this deal with Greg. I know the tracks and prototype sportscars so I think we can get some very good initial results with the package that Greg has created. The Lola is a fast and thoroughbred car that has proved it can push the Audi’s on certain tracks.”

Greg Pickett, who started racing in 1975, was successful in the original TransAm-Series. During a period of almost four decades Pickett won numerous races. He is also the founder and CEO of Cytosport, a company in dietary supplements.

The team plan to race in the entire ALMS season from Long Beach onwards.

The Lola B07/10, an updated version of the car Cytosport will race this year is set to be campaigned by the Swiss Spirit, Chamberlain Synergy and Charouz Racing System teams in the LMS and Le Mans 24 Hours this season.
