PSI’s Corvette Drivers For France
The drivers for the two Corvettes (one C5-R and one C6.R) entered
by Philippe Tillie's PSI Experience in the FFSA GT Championship
are now known, writes David Legangneux.
C5-R, chassis #006, will be driven by Philippe Alliot and David
Hallyday, while the C6.R, chassis #002, will be driven by the Finns
Markus Palttala (right) and (former Viper owner/driver in Belcar)
Alliot and Hallyday were FFSA-GT champions in 2001, with a JMB Ferrari
360 Modena in the GT2 class (which was then known as the GT-FFSA
class – the current GT1 Class was then called "GT-Inter").
Alliot and Hallyday
are pictured on the podium at the FFSA GT meeting at Le Mans in
indeed planning a come-back to the French GT," explains Markus
Palttala - but this news is not yet official yet. "We did it
(FFSA GTs) for couple of years with Porsches, getting some nice
results and we think that the championship is really high level
this year. Nothing is officially confirmed yet, but I should be
there with the C6.R and we are very close to a deal with Alliot-Hallyday.
They are great drivers and personalities and we really hope to seal
everything with them very soon."
