· The fans flooded the track earlier in the week
· First free practice sessions at the 24 Hours of Le Mans for the two PEUGEOT 9X8
· The Team Peugeot TotalEnergies is focussing on the race that promises to be action-packed
Race week is on for the 24 Hours of Le Mans Centenary and 30 years after its historical hat-trick, PEUGEOT is reunited with its fans. Tuesday, during the autograph session, the many fans came to show their support and to meet the six Peugeot Sport drivers.
Today, it was time for the first free practices and also the much-awaited qualifying session, where only the first eight cars qualify for the Hyperpole tomorrow, Thursday 8th June.
It’s on a cooling track that Mikkel Jensen, at the wheel of the #93 PEUGEOT 9X8 and Loïc Duval in the #94 took part to the qualifying. During this action-packed session, interrupted by two red flags, the two Peugeot Sport drivers were not able to show their full capacity and performance. Because of a slow zone deployed 13 minutes before the end of the session, Mikkel Jensen and Loïc Duval were not able to get a clean lap without being caught in the traffic. The #93 PEUGEOT 9X8 set a time of 3:27.546 finishing 10th, followed by the #94 PEUGEOT 9X8 with a lap in 3:27.850.
The two PEUGEOT 9X8 will be back on track tomorrow from 15h for the third free practice followed by the last night session from 22h to 23h. Saturday 10th June at 16h, the #93 PEUGEOT 9X8 will start on the 5th and the #94 on the 6th.
