Alphand To Get A C6.R
Auto-Hebdo reports this week that Luc Alphand Aventures
has confirmed its purchase of this year's Le Mans GT1 winning Corvette
C6.R chassis (the 004) – writes David Legangneux.
The French team will enter the C6 at Le Mans and
in the Le Mans Series next year.
It will keep the C5-R and enter it in FFSA-GT and
at Le Mans, entry permitting, where it should have a "well
known French driver" at the wheel – which should help
with gaining a second entry. 55 cars will race at Le Mans next year,
so there’s room for each class to grow.
Luc Alphand Aventures will “receive its C6.R
at Sebring” – which presumably means that the French
team will race it there.
Here's an interesting
combination of old-car new-car at Le Mans in June: the winning #64,
chassis 004, the third-placed #72 C5-R, chassis 010 - and Alphand
and his team on the podium, with some of the winning GT1 team too.
