Recently-reconfirmed Toro Rosso driver Sebastien Bourdais is to combine his 2009 Formula One commitments with two sportscar appearances for Peugeot, including the epic Le Mans 24-hour race in June.

Bourdais was announced by Peugeot on Tuesday as part of a nine driver line-up, which also includes Ferrari Formula One tester Marc Gene and BMW Sauber counterpart Christian Klien.

Frenchman Bourdais finished second at Le Mans with Peugeot in 2007. As part of his preparations for this year’s event he will also compete in the Sebring 12-hour race in the USA on March 21, the weekend prior to the first round of the 2009 Formula One season, the Australian Grand Prix in Melbourne.
