Le Castellet LMS Opening round: Pescarolo Team to rumble!
The 6 Hours of Le Castellet will be the opening round of the 2011 Le Mans Series Championship. Major actors already had the opportunity to test their skills and new material during preliminary tests a few weeks ago. As for the Pescarolo Team, after an involuntary year-off, it's an even greater challenge despite two previous championship titles in the Serie.
We'll have to wait for the 1000 km of Spa to meet again with Peugeot and Audi but we'll nevertheless be up against top competitors at Le Castellet: two Lola- Rebellion and their new Toyota engine, the Zytec which were among the fastest in the LMP2 category and the brand new Aston Martin with its 2 L 6-cylinders turbo.
Pescarolo Team Autovision is ready for this challenge. Our crew is eager to come back, motivation is high and everybody wants to show that it hasn't lost its fighting spirit.
Claude Galopin and Henri Pescarolo chose to keep the big 5 L Judd, knowing that it's one of the most reliable engines available, while our drivers Collard, Jousse and Tinseau are willing to demonstrate that it hasn't lost its performance edge once adapted to the 2011 regulation.
