Peugeot Sport has revealed that it will only run two cars in the Le Mans Series event at Spa in May, rather than three as originally planned.
The team revealed in February that it would run three 908 HDis in the event as part of its preparations for the Le Mans 24 Hours, but has now elected to scale back to two cars for 'operational reasons'.
As such, the team will call on six drivers for the race, with Christian Klien, Nicolas Minassian and Simon Pagenaud sharing the #7 car and David Brabham, Marc Gene and Alexander Wurz in the sister #8 machine.
"This decision is not due to any delay in either our preparation or our work load, but to a small change in our organisational set-up," points out Peugeot Sport Director Olivier Quesnel. "Our priority is still Le Mans and I don't want to see the team tyre itself out by having to prepare three cars for Spa, especially since we are also working on our ongoing endurance simulation programme.
"We have consequently chosen six drivers for the Belgian race based on the number of kilometres they have respectively put in at the wheel of the 908 HDi FAP."
