Le Mans »

Primat eager to return to racing.

Having finished as the leading petrol-powered car in the Le Mans 24 Hours, Harold Primat will look to cement his position as the leading petrol runner in the Le Mans Series in the fourth round of the campaign at the Nurburgring.

Primat and team-mate Christophe Tinseau missed out on a fine finish last time out at Spa when the #17 Pescarolo-Judd ran out of fuel on the final lap and the pair will hope for an upturn in fortunes in Germany as they seek to retain their position ahead of the rest of the petrol runners.

“It's been a long break since Le Mans and that gave me a chance to take a couple of days off and continue my physical training,” Primat said. “But now we're a week away from the next race and I'm really looking forward to it. We had a two-day test at Magny-Cours this week and the minute I stepped back in the car I realised just how much I've missed it. Having such a good race at Le Mans was a real high, but we still remember what happened at Spa and we're determined to put things right at this race.

“It's a very physically demanding circuit because it's so twisty with a lot of directional changes. You're busy throughout the lap and so is the car. The track is basically the complete opposite of a circuit like Le Mans. The nature of the layout will also play into the hands of the quickest LMP2 cars. They're quite a bit lighter and that's a massive advantage at the Nurburgring, because raw power is less important than somewhere like Spa. The Porsche Spyders in particular will be mixing it with the LMP1 cars.”

Primat added that he expected the diesel cars from Audi and Peugeot to once again be the cars to beat, with the focus of the Pescarolo squad being on trying to maintain championship position.

“I can't envisage the order at the front changing too much, so the diesel-powered Peugeots and Audis will still dominate, but our aim is to fight with the Courage-Orecas, Creations and the Lola Aston Martin and top the petrol class,” he said. “The three points we lost at Spa has made the battle to be the best placed petrol car very tight and we have a real fight on our hands to maintain our position in the championship, but it's still achievable.”
