Pescarolo names Peugeot line-up

Pescarolo Sport has announced the three drivers who will share its Peugeot 908 HDi for the 2009 running of the Le Mans 24 Hours this summer.

The team, which will run become the first privateer team to run the diesel-powered closed Coupe, will put two of its regular drivers – Jean-Christophe Boullion and Benoit Treluyer – in the car where they will be joined by Frenchman Simon Pagenaud.

Pagenaud's signing comes after agreement was reached with Peugeot to allow the American Le Mans Series racer to take up a drive at La Sarthe, with the factory team having already signed him up as a reserve driver for the annual round the clock classic.

Pagenaud will also join the works team for the Spa 1000km to replace Sebastien Bourdais, who is unavailable due to his Formula One commitments with Toro Rosso.

“I wish to thank Automobiles Peugeot for having entrusted our team with one of their cars,” Henri Pescarolo said. “With such a team of drivers, there is no doubt the Peugeot 908 HDi FAP entrusted to Pescarolo Sports will bring support to Peugeot against Audi in the Le Mans 24 Hours!”
