PRODUCTIVE PAUL RICARD PROLOGUE FOR MECACHROME MOTORSPORT

Last weekend saw the first official running for the 2018/19 FIA World Endurance Championship Super Season, at The Prologue test held on the Paul Ricard circuit.

Mecachrome Motorsport was present, with both of CEFC TRSM Racing’s V634P1-powered Ginetta G60-LT-P1s running alongside their full-season competition for the first time.

Between the #5, driven by Charlie Robertson, Leo Roussel and Dean Stoneman, and the #6 of Oliver Rowland and Alex Brundle, the cars completed 1,500 km of running.

Director of Mecachrome Motorsport Bruno Engelric, said: “Over the course of the test, we had no issues with the engines in either car.

“The second Ginetta had not run prior to the test, being built-up at the circuit, so to not have any problems was key to maximising the amount of track time we could get.

“We worked through our own programme, running to the FIA fuel flow measurements, as well as listening to the drivers feedback, and adapting the engines accordingly.

“Overall, it was a productive test, I have to thank both the Mecachrome Motorsport and Ginetta crews, who worked tirelessly to make sure both cars were out on track.”

Next, is the FIA WEC’s season opening 6 Hours of Spa, on 3-5 May.
