Peugeot’s NEW 908 To Take Sebring Podium
Team Peugeot Total has entered two cars for next weekend’s race, the first round of the 2011 Intercontinental Le Mans Cup. The first car, racing as No. 7 will be driven by the 2010 driver team champions, Alexander Wurz, Marc Gené and Anthony Davidson. The second car will carry the No. 8 and will be driven by Franck Montagny, Stéphane Sarrazin and Pedro Lamy. Powered by a particulate filter equipped V8 3.7-litre, HDi turbo-charged diesel engine, developing some 550hp, Peugeot Sport’s latest creation will be one of only a few cars in the LMP1 line-up to be built to the new 2011 regulations.
As part of Team Peugeot Total’s planning and technical development programme, two Peugeot 908s will compete in the Sebring race.
Winner of the inaugural ILMC endurance championship title, contested over just three rounds last year, but also the winner at Sebring in 2010, Team Peugeot Total is competing in the full 2011 race calendar.
