Larbre announces Barcelona line-up

Larbre Competition has announced that Steve Zacchia, Roland Berville and Sebastien Dumez will be its driver line-up for the opening round of the new Le Mans Series season in Barcelona this weekend.

The trio will share driving duties in the #50 Saleen S7R for the opening round of the 2009 campaign, which mark the return to LMS competition for Jack Leconte's team.

All three drivers have raced for the team before, with Zacchia having helped the Val de Vienne-based squad to the GTS class title in 2004 in a Ferrari 550 Maranello. He has also driven for them in the FIA GT Championship and French Porsche Carrera Cup and was a class winner in the Aston Martin Racing Larbre DBR9 in the 1000 Milhas, the final round of the 2007 LMS calendar.

Berville is another familiar face at Larbre and contested the final round of the FIA GT Championship in San Luis last season, while Dumez raced with Larbre as long ago as 2001 in the FIA GT Championship.

“I'm delighted with our driver line-up,” Leconte said. “We've worked with all three of these guys before. We trust them to do a good job in Barcelona and I'm sure that feeling is mutual. They all have plenty of endurance racing experience and that is always crucial in a 1000km race.



“We finished second-in-class in Barcelona last season with our Saleen S7R, despite having to start from the very back the grid. This year we hope to celebrate our return to the Le Mans Series on the top step of the podium.”
