Franck speaks out

Our hero FKM has finally opened up about Le Mans, and it makes good reading (even when murdered by Google Translate). There’s a lot of detail about the broken leg, and the race itself, but the best bit comes at the end, when he talks about why he looked grumpy on the podium:

“Sorry … I am not proud of this moment for my guys, for all the work we have done, I should have a smile of pride to belong to this family … but tired, hurt and disappointed, I struggled on. But do not worry after a few hours, I was the first to open the fridge door truck to offer drink to the winners and 2009 … with a smile!”

Franck might have a chance for another podium, as Peugeot announced they will be running two cars at Petit Le Mans in September. The details, according to this AmericanLeMans.com story, are:

“The race is scheduled for 11:15 a.m. ET on Saturday, September 26 at the 2.54-mile, 12-turn Road Atlanta layout. Pedro Lamy, Nic Minassian, Franck Montagny and Stephane Sarrazin will make up the driving lineup for Peugeot.”

Yay, another race to look forward to!

  1. According to Radio Le Mans Peugeot have now entered two cars for the ALMS race at Laguna Seca on October 10th so you should get more Franck this season.
