No Larbre Ferrari At Albi
There will be two Larbre Ferraris at Spa next weekend for the 1000
Km LMES race, but Patrice Goueslard confirmed during the last few
days that the car that has been racing in the French GT Championship
will not compete there again (and therefore isn’t at Albi
this weekend). The 550’s best result of the season so far
is a fourth place.
"It is inconceivable
for a driver and his sponsors to take the start of a race knowing
that it is impossible to target the win,” says Goueslard.
“It's the review we have to make with this Ferrari in this
GT championship where obviously, they boast of its entry, but it
musn't win. I won't start again to enumerate all the technical differences
between the French GT and the other regulations, but the fact remains
that this brilliant Ferrari (which) wins everything abroad but nothing
“The French lawmaker
has ‘sterilized’ the beautiful red one! For me and after
two French titles in 2002 and 2003, it is intolerable to continue
in 2004 with a car that runs two seconds slower than the Vipers.
While with the 24 hours of Le Mans regulations for example, the
Ferrari ‘explodes’ the times of the Vipers!”
has dropped out of the FFSA GT series, but will race at Spa next
weekend, with Tomas Enge and Robert Pergl.
