Formula One driver Fernando Alonso will further widen his repertoire by competing in this year's 24 Hours Le Mans endurance race.The two-time F1 champion has been given permission by McLaren to drive for Toyota at Le Mans on June 16-17 . The deal means he can take part in as many World Endurance Championship rounds as possible, but must also compete in each F1 race this year.After three years of struggles with Honda engines, McLaren has high hopes for the upcoming F1 season after switching to Renault. The move also did much to convince Alonso, who won his F1 titles with Renault in 2005 and 2006, to stay in F1 with McLaren.The 24 Hours Le Mans falls between the Canadian GP on June 10 and the French GP on June 24 .
