FFSA GT Entry Prospects
SRO and the Supersérie FFSA have released some news about
the 2006 FFSA GT entries – writes Claude Foubert.
Vipers will again form the core of the grid - ten
GTS-Rs are expected this year, including the VBM Viper of the defending
champions Patrick Bornhauser and Olivier Thévenin, the Fabien
Giroix entry and the Beltoise / Blanchemain Autovitesse car.
Larbre will enter two Ferrari 550 Maranellos - for
Policand / Balthazard and Goueslard / TBA.
Lister Storms will be on the grid: Creation Autosportif will field
the blue Storm for Romain Brandela, likely to be partnered by Thierry
Stepec. "It is now definite that we'll be racing the FFSA GT
Championship with this famous blue Lister,” says Brandela.
“We're going to do some testing in Great Britain, then we
should be at Magny-Cours in March. We chose this car for its performances
and its originality. It is clear that it was easier to convince
the sponsors thanks to that."
Red Racing will race a Lister too. Gaël Lesoudier
could drive it, as last year.
Three or four
Corvettes will also compete in the FFSA series: a C5-R for Soave
/ Cayrolle, an SRT C5-R for some races, and one or two C5-R / C6.Rs
entered by PSI, drivers still TBA.
Philippe Alliot and David Hallyday will almost certainly
be back, but they are considering two different projects.
DDO will again enter the Saleen S7R for Dominique
Dupuy and François Fiat.
