Luc Alphand made it clear last week
that he was disappointed to ‘only’ receive
an entry for his Ferrari 550, not for his Porsche
too. Any suggestion that he might not run the 550
has been forgotten as he states that "I clearly
understand the reasons of the ACO. Throughout my
career, I have always respected the rules and I never
sought a favour from anyone. I have been given a
great honour by the ACO for my entry and I thank
them for that."
So, appreciative of one entry now,
rather than belligerent at not receiving two.
The Luc Alphand Aventures team may
now enter some ALMS races later in the season too: “If
our budget allows it, maybe we will compete in some
ALMS races," adds team manager Philippe Poincloux.
The Alliot / Hallyday ‘which
car do they enter’ saga is still rumbling along,
also in "Ouest-France" today. The paper
suggests that the French pair are still in touch
with Courage Compétition. Alliot announced
his intention for the pair to race with Durango,
but that may not actually be the case now. Alliot,
claims "Ouest-France", is about to make
a deal with Yves Courage.
Presumably Ian Dawson at Taurus Sports
is following this with interest.
