The Mansells and 'that' race number
Nigel Mansell's return to competitive motorsport for this weekend's Autosport 1000km of Silvertsone endurance race will be accompanied by the return of another motor racing legend - the 'Red 5' race number.

The iconic red number '5' - forever associated with Mansell and his Formula One career with Williams - makes its racing comeback on Our Nige's Ginetta-Zytek GZ09S LMP1 car.

Ginetta boss Lawrence Tomlinson said: "It was too good an opportunity to miss and we simply had to make sure the car was re-numbered to 'Red 5' in honour of having Nigel compete in a Ginetta. We're thankful to Le Mans Series organisers for letting us make this change and I hope Mansell supporters old and new will relish the opportunity to have a chance to cheer on the Red 5 once again!"

Taking the wheel of the Ginetta Zytek with his dad will be Greg Mansell.
