Sir Chris Hoy on his 'dream' to race at Le Mans

BBC Sport's Chris McLaughlin reports on Sir Chris Hoy's bid to compete in the world famous Le Mans 24-Hour race in 2016.

The six-time Olympic cycling champion retired from cycling a year ago, and has signed a deal with Nissan to compete in this season's British GT Championship.

The 2014 British GT Championship begins on Easter weekend (19-21 April) at Cheshire's Oulton Park circuit.
