Peugeot Sport has announced that Sébastian Loeb Racing is to field two 308 Racing Cup cars in the third race meeting of the TCR International Series at Circuit de Spa-Francorchamps next month.
A Peugeot 308 Racing Cup car had taken part in the TCR Balance of Performance test at Valencia, where it ran at the minimum weight of 1225 kilos, including the driver.
“We are honoured that Peugeot Sport entrusted two cars to Sébastien Loeb Racing for taking part in the TCR event in Spa,” commented Marcello Lotti, TCR promoter. “Their participation will add further credit to the TCR concept. I am confident that the 308 Racing Cup will show the great potential that impressed our BoP driver Nicola Larini during the Valencia test.”
Peugeot has stated that the cars have been given to SBR to allow Peugeot Sport’s engineers to gain more experience of the car in a competitive environment. May will also see the cars compete in a singular VLN3 round at the Nürburgring Nordschleife, Germany, as well as an ETCC – also at the Nürburgring.
The Peugeot 308 Racing Cup will be released for sale on July 9.
