The 80th edition of the world's most famous endurance race, the 24 Hours of Le Mans, will take place on 16 and 17 June and the teams entering it are already in active preparation. This is the case for Pescarolo Team whose two entries have been validated by the Automobile Club de l’Ouest at the press conference organised on 2 February: on the one hand, a Pescarolo 03-Judd, driven by Emmanuel Collard, Jean-Christophe Boullion and Julien Jousse which will also participate in the new world endurance championship, and, on the other hand a Dome S102.5-Judd, whose team will comprise Nicolas Minassian, Sébastien Bourdais and a Japanese driver to be confirmed.
'Even if it has evolved a great deal since, the 102 has participated in only one race, the 2008 24 Hours of Le Mans, recalls Minoru Hayashi, president of Dome. It has shown excellent potential, but has since stayed in our workshops. (...)' We are therefore returning to Le Mans to complete unfinished work.' For Dome, the choice of Henri Pescarolo's team is no hazard: 'We are certain that Pescarolo Team is the best team for our car, given its excellent track record compared with the official teams that have far greater budgets.'
Pescarolo Team is one of the teams to which Motul provides its technical partnership. By adding the other teams supported in LMP2 and LMGTE, no less than nine cars will bear Motul's colours on the track in Le Mans in June.
