Team Peugeot RCZ Nokia & Kuhmo Nürburgring 24 Hour aims
A stellar trio of drivers are lined-up for the Nürburgring 24 Hours for the Kumho-shod Team Peugeot RCZ Nokia – with new signing, Le Mans LMP1 star Bruce Jouanny joining Alex Premat and Jonathan Cochet in the ‘professional’ car. The team are aiming for a class victory in the 39th Nürburgring 24 Hour race on June 23-26. And the Peugeot RCZ 2.0 HDi FAP has been busy getting in the hours on the infamous green hell, in the excellent VLN Championship, taking three podiums in a row in recent races – making them the most successful diesel-powered model currently running in the championship. Kumho’s European Motorsport Manager Steve Thompson said: “Bearing in mind their excellent results to date and their strong driver line-up, the RCZ team have given themselves an excellent chance of achieving their goals in the 24 Hour race. We are very much looking forward to the event.” For further information on Kumho and its products, log onto www.kumhotyre.co.uk. Looking good getting air eh?
