Tom Kimber-Smith is chasing an LMP1 drive at June's Le Mans 24 Hours, after being left out of Greaves Motorsport's LMP2 lineup.
The 27-year-old Briton was the star driver for the team in 2011, helping it to a Le Mans class victory and the Le Mans Series LMP2 title. Despite re-signing to drive the team's Zytek-Nissan in the LMS next year alongside Alex Brundle, he has not been named as part of its driver roster for the 24 Hours, with Brundle's father Martin coming on-board instead.
Kimber-Smith said that he had not given up on a Le Mans drive and was actively searching for a berth with a team in the top prototype category.
"I've won Le Mans in a GT car and an LMP2, so LMP1 is the only place to aim for," he said. "I've had contact with a couple of teams in different classes and it's just a case of weighing up which is the best option."
Kimber-Smith has two Le Mans class victories to his name, his LMP2 triumph this year adding to his GT2 win in a Panoz in 2006.
