ALPINE SEEKS FURTHER SUCCESS IN THE LAND OF THE RISING SUN
The FIA World Endurance Championship (WEC) kicks off its Asian tour with the 6 Hours of Fuji in Japan.
Having already won four races this season, Nicolas Lapierre, Stéphane Richelmi and Gustavo Menezes will as always be aiming to top the podium and move a step closer to the LMP2 title.
After a successful American tour, the Team wants to keep the momentum. It will be the first time there, for both Stephane and Gustavo Menezes but Nicolas Lapierre will be once again really important in this preparation. The weather is often bringing some surprises in the land of the Rising Sun…
Do the #36 can score 9 points more than the RGR, to take the LMP2 title ? Overall, the Signatech-Alpine team has a healthy 38-point lead over RGR Sport by Morand, whilst the drivers are 41 points clear of Senna, Albuquerque and Gonzalez. It is therefore mathematically possible that one or both titles could be secured this weekend, although the French team would also need other results to go their way ! The answer will be given Sunday at 5pm local time ! Stay tuned
