Peugeot cars will be returning to endurance racing for the first time since the brand's Intercontinental Le Mans Cup victory this season.

The 908 racers will be entering the 12 Hours of Sebring race on March 16th, as drivers Alexander Wurz, Marc Gene and Anthony Davidson gear up for the new season.

Peugeot Sport's technical director Bruno Famin said that the trip to the US will be largely about learning the car.

The current 908 is a completely new vehicle, so there will be many unknowns for both the drivers and the mechanics.

"We also need to learn how to get the best out of the car. This is what we have been doing in private testing, but now we need to do it in race conditions," he said.

The Geneva Motor Show saw Peugeot unveil a diesel-hybrid version of the 908, which it hopes will become the cornerstone of its racing programme in the future.
