A DREAM TEAM FOR THE

The selection of drivers made by Pescarolo Sport for its Peugeot 908 HDi FAP in the next edition of the Le Mans 24 hours aroused a lot of interest among the public; finally Jean-Christophe BOULLION, Simon PAGENAUD and Benoit TRELUYER were selected.

Peugeot Sport and Pescarolo Sport mutually agreed to select Simon Pagenaud as third driver of Pescarolo Sport teamed up with Jean-Christophe Boullion, leader of the team and Benoit Treluyer. Simon Pagenaud, driving for Acura in the USA will replace Sebastien Bourdais at Spa-Francorchamps for the 1000 km race in Le Mans Series, and then will become a reserve driver for the official team.

Henri Pescarolo proposed the wheel of the 908 HDi FAP to Jean-Christophe Boullion, leader of the team from Sarthe. Driving a closed prototype with a diesel engine will be a new experience for him: he accepted with enthusiasm. As for Benoit Treluyer, a Nissan driver in Japan, he is familiar with closed racing cars; he will discover the diesel engine in Le Mans.

Henri Pescarolo: "I wish to thank Automobiles Peugeot for having entrusted our team with one of their cars. With such a team of drivers, there is no doubt the Peugeot 908 HDi FAP entrusted to Pescarolo Sports will bring support to Peugeot against Audi in the Le Mans 24 Hours!"
