14.11.2008: Assembly of the FLM Prototype is underway

All the components of the Formula Le Mans prototype arrived at our assembly workshops.

Once each part had been checked and tested to make sure it fully complied with the precise specifications defined by our design office, assembly could begin.

As an example, the American V8 engine developed by ORECA Magny-Cours underwent an endurance bench test and ran for more than 20 hours without the slightest problem!


Michelin, the new Formula Le Mans Cup partner

The promoters of Formula Le Mans Cup are pleased to announce that a partnership has been signed with the reference tyre manufacturer in endurance racing.

Michelin is the Formula’s exclusive tyre supplier and will therefore equip all the prototypes in the cup.

Moreover, Michelin will give tyres free of charge to the first three competitors in each race!


X-Trac, Formula Le Mans Cup Official Supplier

X-trac is the gear box official supplier.

This major brand will furnish gear box and spare parts for all the field.

After Brembo & ATR, the Formula can boast yet another prestigious technical partner!
