Porsche 996 GT3-RS

Lamborghini Diablo N-GT (tuned from Lamborghini Trophy car):
Christian & Michel Demigneux (2003 Coupe de France winners).

Ex formula 3000 driver Fabien Giroix will make his comeback this year (car and team unknown).

Will Larbre's Prodrive-built Ferrari dominate? Patrice Goueslard will also drive this car at Le Mans, with two drivers not yet known, but one of these two could be Christophe Bouchut of course. It seems the car will be entered at Le Mans with an automatic entry.

TFN, Goueslard's sponsor, has increased its financial support to make the deal with Frédéric Dor has been possible. But Goueslard apparently has still to find some more money to complete the budget.

Goueslard will try to win a third straight French GT title in a third different car, after a Porsche in 2002 and a Chrysler Viper last year.

The first race is the Easter meeting ("Coupes de Pâques") at Nogaro, 10-11-12 April.
