Alpine no longer has a Hypercar on track after six hours of racing at the 24 Hours of Le Mans

Alpine concluded its 24 Hours of Le Mans on Saturday after six hours of racing. Shortly after Ferdinand Habsburg retired due to engine failure after 75 laps in the No. 35 A424, it was the No. 36 which returned to the pits. The mechanics worked on the engine block, but Nicolas Lapierre ended up getting out of the car and the pit curtain was lowered. She therefore completed 88 laps. The French manufacturer therefore finds itself out of the race at 10 p.m. He was therefore right to warn that reliability could be a problem and that the main objective was to see the finish.

“We can confirm that cars 35 and 36 are out of the race due to a suspected engine problem,” responded Alpine. This is the team’s first year in the Hypercar class at the 24 Hours of Le Mans, and we knew from the start that it would be a tough learning curve. We will deepen our research and we will come back stronger and more determined next year at Le Mans. The car showed good pace, which allowed it to reach the Hyperpole in qualifying, we had a good start in the race and this encourages us for the future. »
