A Second Pilbeam MP93
Interest in Mike Pilbeam’s MP93 LMP2 car has resulted in the
commissioning of a second chassis, to race in the 2007 Le Mans Series
and, entry permitting, at Le Mans.
”An ambitious team new to prototype racing”,
has ordered the car, and it will be undertaking a full test programme
before the season gets underway with the Paul Ricard test days.
Pierre Bruneau’s PIR Competition took three
podium positions in LMP2 this year, the first coming at the opening
LMS race at Istanbul.
also sat atop the times, overall, at Le Mans this year, in Bruneau’s
Pilbeam – for 43 minutes at the start of Wednesday’s
qualifying. He set a quick lap early on in the well-balanced MP93,
just as the rain started to fall. Here's Marc Rostan at the wheel
later in that session.
