ProSpeed Competition had a successful test at the FIA World Endurance Championship’s Prologue, with drivers François Perrodo, Matthieu Vaxivière and Emmanuel Collard enjoying the new No.75 Porsche 911 GT3 RSR.
The test, which lasted for two days in the South of France, saw the team run smoothly both on the track and off it, with Team Principle Rudi Penders saying the team are ready for the intense season ahead.
“The test ran smoothly, both on the technical as also the logistic fronts,” said Penders. “I believe we are well prepared for the season to come, even though I did notice after several laps how intense the WEC level has become.
“This undoubtedly is the cream of endurance racing, and victory or losing merely depends on some very fine details. All the teams are professional and to differentiate one from the other everything has to be 105% perfect.
“On the other hand the WEC is a brilliant commercial and marketing platform, as shown by the 200 journalists and 8000 spectators present during the second day of the test sessions!”
Talking of the season ahead, driver François Perrodo says that LMGTE Am is going to be a tight affair this season.
“One of the key elements of the championship is the homogeneity of the drivers’ trio,” he said. “The professional drivers, in our case Emmanuel Collard, are all equally matched and it will therefore be down to the other two team members to make the difference.
“The better the team’s homogeneity the better the overall success will be. I’m therefore delighted to be able to work together with the up-coming young Matthieu Vaxivière and my friend Manu (Collard). I truly believe that with our trio we can definitely aim for a podium.”
ProSpeed, and the rest of the FIA WEC paddock, get their season’s under way at Silverstone on April 20.
