Signatech Alpine racing in WEC 2015

Postby eastlmark » Sun Feb 01, 2015 11:58 am

unconfirmed reports that Signatech at least or hopefully Signatech Alpine will contest the WEC this year, instead of the ELMS or maybe even both. A much more prestigious series, but will only be racing for LMP2 class wins rather than overall wins as they have become accustomed to in the ELMS series where LMP2 cars were the fastest class.
It will, however, be without British driver Oliver James Webb who has signed for the Japanese SARD team for an interesting, Toyota powered WEC LMP2 project which will involve him being the "gold" driver with up and coming drivers taking the other seats in much the same way as Nissan have brought on young drivers in their GT academy programme (presumably these ones have actually driven real race cars before being taken on mind).

Nelson Panciatici and Paul Loup Chatin have been retained as drivers and will be joined by a third driver TBA.
never thought I would want a list but now find myself needing one just to remind me: Clio V6 230, Clio cup racer (X85), Clio 200 (X98) clio 182 (X65) (Riku's), Renault sport twin turbo in Panorama blue (van), Spider (Xciting) Clio220 Trophy.

not a great start to the WEC campaign for Signatech Alpine, heavy contact into the barriers ended the race early on, (P-LC was ok though) Traditionally the team don't fare too well at Silverstone yet go onto greater things as the year progresses, lets hope that's the case this year too.
