The Colombian will be taking part in a 'Rookie Test' session which is scheduled a day after the upcoming 6 Hours of Bahrain.
The announcement, which broke after Montoya was photographed having a seat fitting with the team, has sparked rumours that he will attempt to become only the second driver in history after Graham Hill to complete the 'Triple Crown' of motorsport; with Montoya having already won both the Monaco Grand Prix back in 2003 and the Indianapolis 500 in 2000 and 2015.
In addition, when we take into account Montoya's record at the 24 Hours of Daytona where he has been victorious on three occasions, as well as taking 2nd place twice, and that Nico Hulkenberg, who won this years 24 Hours of Le Mans for Porsche, will not be able to take part in the 2016 event on account of a date clash with the 2016 European Grand Prix in Azerbaijan, the possibility of Montoya racing at Le Mans seems a much more likely possibility.
Do you think Montoya competing at Le Mans in 2016 is a likely scenario? Or perhaps nothing more than a pipe dream? Or maybe even that the veteran racer would not cut the mustard? Let us know below!
