Lexelle-sponsored John McGuinness is determined to end the Endurance World Championship at Le Mans this weekend on a high.

It’s been a tough week for McGuinness who crashed out of the Scarborough Cup while leading last weekend.

McGuinness and the Honda TT Legends team sit in 15th place in the EWC standings ahead of the final round in France.

Isle of Man TT star McGuinness has vowed to ‘push hard’ to make up for the disappointment of a lacklustre year in the series.

He said: “There’s no denying that it’s been a tough season for us, but the aim this week is to put all that behind us and move on to end the year with a good result.

“At this stage last year we were in a great position, second in the standings and we had it all to play for. We’re no worse a team this year, in fact if anything we’re stronger, so there’s no reason why we can’t pull a result out of the bag.

“There’s a really positive feeling in the team and we’ll be pushing as hard as we can to make that happen.”

McGuinness in joined in the team by Michael Dunlop, Michael Rutter and Simon Andrews.

The three-man line-up for the race, which gets underway on Saturday afternoon, will be decided following qualifying on Friday.
