208 GTi Racing Experience: First roars in the "ring"
It was the first opportunity for the 8 winners of the project 208 GTi Racing Experience to meet up since the International Final of La Ferte Gaucher, and start working together as a cohesive team to face the 24H Nürburgring 2013.
The learning program of the circuit having thus been condensed, the pilots were quickly confronted with the realities of the Nordschleife: merciless route and heavy traffic. On four 208 Racing Cup participants, two have fallen into these traps. The other two cars reach the finish and allow their pilots to make a double in their category.
The 208 GTi Peugeot Sport, still under development as designed in a very short time, has meanwhile proved in this first competitive outing it was well born and reliable signing a very convincing 40th place in the general ranking that placed it first in its category.
The next deadline for the 8 "208 GTi ambassadors" is set for April 27 for the VLN 3 race, the last step before the 24H Nürburgring 2013.
