Le Mans News From France
Auto-Hebdo reports this week that Paul Belmondo will enter only one car next year, in the Le Mans Series and at Le Mans - writes David Legangneux. It will be a Courage LC75 AER. Paul Belmondo and Karim Ojjeh will be at the wheel.

On Wednesday, Ouest-France announced, unofficially, that Sébastien Bourdais will race at Le Mans next year with Peugeot. This confirms what we heard in the Le Mans paddock earlier this month. Ouest-France explains that after his third title in Champ Car, Bourdais confirmed to the newspaper his talks with Peugeot. Then Henri Pescarolo suggested to the paper that Bourdais was planning to answer positively to Peugeot. Of course Serge Saulnier at Peugeot hasn’t confirmed any of this: the Peugeot drivers will be announced in December. Minassian and Sarrazin still look to be the mot likely season-long drivers.

News received from Italy ends the rumour of Italian drivers moving from Audi to Peugeot. Rinaldo Capello never did talk to Peugeot, while Emanuele Pirro has apparently had contact with the French manufacturer, but talks seem not have gone any further.
