Swiss Spirit Confirms 2007 Programme
With a best result of second at the Le Mans Series event at Spa
in May, Harold Primat’s Swiss Spirit team has been a welcome
and competitive addition to the LMS and Le Mans grids this season.
It’s therefore no surprise to find that the
team has confirmed that its programme continues into 2007, running
the same Courage LC70 Judd.
Swiss Spirit will need to find a new team manager
though, Serge Saulnier having been confirmed as the team manager
for the Peugeot Sport Le Mans project.
“My appointment as Team Manager of Peugeot
Sport does not change anything for Swiss Spirit’s 2007 programme,”
says Saulnier. “The rest of the team personnel will remain
unchanged and the team will continue to run and develop the Courage-Judd-Michelin
“Swiss Spirit has proven its speed and potential this year
and there is an important development and reliability programme
planned for the winter. I am confident that Swiss Spirit will be
a prominent force in 2007, both in the Le Mans Series and the Le
Mans 24 Hours – if the team gets an invitation.”
That shouldn’t be too much of a concern for
the Swiss team.
“For the remainder of this year, the team is of course as
focused as ever for the last race in Jarama on September 24 and
the objective is to finish, score points and secure second place
in the Le Mans Series championship.”
Currently the team is fourth in LMP1 on 11 points,
behind Pescarolo Sport (40), Chamberlain-Synergy (15) and Creation
Autosportif’s #9 car (14).
