Bouchut – Now A Corvette Too
With the news that Christophe Bouchut will race the SRT Corvette C5-R in five FFSA GT events this year, that makes the Frenchman’s commitments even more wide-ranging in 2006: the Narac Porsche in the Le Mans Series, the RS Lamborghini in the FIA GT Championship (not Silverstone), the Cirtek Aston Martin at Silverstone and Le Mans, FIA GT test driver.. is there any room left on the Bouchut calendar?

“It’s very important for SRT to get chance to collaborate with an experienced, top driver such as Christophe,” says SRT owner Patrick Selleslagh. “Yvan Lebon will join Christophe in the car, which is great, as Yvan knows the car already. He drove for us in 2004, both in the Spa 24 Hours and in some races of the French GT series.”

The SRT Corvette’s season begins this coming weekend, with the opening race of the Belcar season. David Hart will be joined by Sebastiaan Bleekemolen, because younger brother Jeroen is racing a Spyker at Istanbul.
