Le Mans: Qualifying 2

Peugeot continued their fine form from the first round of qualifying, and took the first three spots on the grid. Franck’s car is second, behind Stephane Sarrazin, and ahead of Marc Gene. The finishing times were over three seconds quicker than Audi.

Unfortunately, Montagny’s team mate Ricardo Zonta was having a go in the car when he was involved in an incident. The Peugeot was hit by another car and smashed into the barriers. Zonta is unharmed, but this has put them on the back foot slightly, with only a short amount of time to rebuild the car.

No quotes from Franck today, but Peugeot Sport Director Michel Barge left us with these positive words:

“After the need to rebuild the N7 car last week, it’s yet another challenge for the team and we’ve had a very, very busy two-week build-up to this year’s Le Mans 24 Hours!”

Oh dear.
