Silverstone: first official appearance for Luc Alphand!

Since his motorbike accident in last June, Luc Alphand took some rest by his family and followed an active re-education programme. Today we have the pleasure to announce you that former ski champion and above all, racing driver; Luc Alphand Aventure's team eponymous founder will be present to support his troops at the occasion of the season final race.

Phone interview, this morning, with the French champion.

"I am really happy to join my troops this week end. I'm showing officially up for the first time after my accident, even if I moved a little bit last week-end. But this is the very first time I will join my crew on a circuit, and it makes me really happy.

What is really good is to feel the first signs of self-government! This is good for the brain and keeps in good spirits. I am still not a brand new Lucho, but I improve and I feel good.

It was very important for me to be present with the mechanics, all the staff members, the drivers and Patrice (Goueslard) of course, especially after all the problems we have had for a few weeks. I had to be here to tell them to trust in the future and to keep going on...but also to share a good dinner together!"

Luc's optimism and exuberance did not suffer from the man and team's misfortunes. Beyond a shadow of a doubt, they will all together celebrate a title already in the bag!
