Pescarolo Sport will enter a Peugeot 908 HDi FAP in the Le Mans 24 Hours

The List of Invitations for the Le Mans 24 Hours, as announced by the ACO (Automobile Club de l'Ouest), revealed a well-kept secret: in order to strengthen its strategy for the conquest of a victory in Le Mans, Peugeot Sport decided to entrust a Peugeot 908 to Pescarolo Sport.

Henri Pescarolo appreciates this token of confidence : "Sometime ago, just before the closing date for the applications to the 24 Hours, I had the surprise to be offered by Oliver Quesnel, new principal of Peugeot Sport, the possibility to enter a Peugeot 908 under the name of Pescarolo Spor! For the team, it will be a new and fascinating experience to have one of these very high performance 908 HDi FAP at our disposal. I take this opportunity to thank the ACO for inviting us with two different cars."

Pescarolo Sport is very ambitious for this new season. Thanks to the development work made on the Pescarolo-Judd Evo 2009, the Sarthe team will do its best to hold its first position in the 'petrol-engine' category both in Le Mans Series and in the Le Mans 24 Hours.

The team of drivers will be announced within a few days, same as the end-of- season programme in Asian Le Mans Series with the 908 HDi FAP.

Together with Henri Pescarolo, the whole team Pescarolo Sport feels very proud to have been selected by Automobiles Peugeot.
