TWO PEUGEOT 908 HDi FAPs FOR SPA

Following March's 12 Hours of Sebring, Team Peugeot Total is continuing its preparations for the Le Mans 24 Hours and, as announced at the pre-season presentation in February, the second phase of the programme will take the squad to Spa-Francorchamps in Belgium.

Based on the lessons learnt at Sebring, Peugeot Sport has decided to enter two 908 HDi FAPs for the 1,000km de Spa-Francorchamps (May 9-10) instead of the three cars initially planned.

"This decision is not due to any delay in either our preparation or our work load, but to a small change in our organisational set-up," points out Peugeot Sport Director Olivier Quesnel. "Our priority is still Le Mans and I don't want to see the team tire itself out by having to prepare three cars for Spa, especially since we are also working on our ongoing endurance simulation programme. We have consequently chosen six drivers for the Belgian race based on the number of kilometres they have respectively put in at the wheel of the 908 HDi FAP."
