Coming in 2007 – Luc Alphand Aventures – Europe

I am pleased thus to announce today that TEAM LAA will make roll 2 cars in 2007: on the one hand the C5R (Chassis C5R-010) with which Luc Alphand, Jérome Policand and Patrice Goueslard signed excellent results in 2006 and the lately acquired C6R (Chassis C6R-004). With the program, the championship Le Mans Series and 24 Hours of Le Mans, race for which the TEAM will request an engagement.

I will concluerai this édito by expressing my great satisfaction within sight of our results and by addressing all my congratulations to the whole of the TEAM. The serious one and it without fault of the pilots since the beginning of the season as well as the very good management and preparatory work of the technical team make the TEAM increasingly homogeneous and unceasingly make it progress: we sign a podium at the time of the 24 Hours of Mans, and with a podium in Istanbul, one second place in Nurburgring July followed by another second place in Donington in August, we currently at the head point European championship Mans Series in front of Aston Martin official, Maranello Ferrari of the TEAM Menx and Saleen of the TEAM Oreca. The last test of the season will take place with Jarama, in Spain, next on September 24: the first places will be very disputed but I do not doubt that the team will be on the podium, and I hope for it, on highest walk!

I wish with all our readers as beautiful re-entry as ours! Return in Jarama!

2006-10-11 – interview with Doug Fehan:

With its success globally, many teams have been eyeing a Corvette for its racing program for 2007.  Fehan confirmed that more C6.Rs are being made available to customers for the coming season.

“Absolutely,” Fehan stated.  “As a matter of fact, we have four cars for sale right now. We already have two that are done {C6R.005 and C6R.006, apparently – see below} and these two [current ALMS {C6R.003 and C6R.004}] cars will be for sale as well.”

Corvette Racing will be building two new C6.Rs for its 2007 racing season {C6R.007 and C6R.008?}.  However, its program has yet to be confirmed.

“Right now, there is not a contract in place to support Corvette Racing in 2007.” Fehan stated.
