Fernando Alonso has opened the door to a possible tilt at the Le Mans 24-hour race before the end of his motor racing career.
The two-time Formula 1 world champion started this year's race and admitted that he enjoyed his experience at the blue-riband event in central France.
Alonson is quoted by NBC Sport as saying: "It was a good experience. It was a lot of passion in the race, a lot of people in the paddock, 3,000 people which is quite a lot of people when you are not anonymous.
"It's a good experience, a good race, and obviously to win the 24 Hours of Le Mans means a lot for any driver, and hopefully I will race there."
His current employer, Ferrari, have hinted at pulling out of F1 and have mooted the possibly of a return to sports car racing.
