Pegasus Racing will run two Ligier JS53 chassis in the 2013 SPEED EuroSeries with one car piloted by the promising young French pairing of Amandine Foulard and Lionel Comole.
Amandine is a rising star in French motorsport and has been a regular feature of the SPEED EuroSeries’ first two seasons whilst Lionel, a professional sportsman whose career was prematurely ended by a degenerative arthritic condition, joined the SPEED grid at Dijon in 2012 and immediately displayed the competitive instinct to be a winner.
“It’s fantastic to have Amandine and Lionel involved in 2013,” said Oli McCrudden, SPEED organizer. “Amandine has clearly developed her race craft and improved her speed over the two seasons in which she has raced with SPEED. Lionel is a real competitor with experience in rallying and other race formats. His high profile as a sportsman in France has to lead to his significant involvement in the Arthritis Foundation charity, a cause very personal to him, and one which SPEED will be championing this season.”
Pegasus Racing has been involved in SPEED EuroSeries campaigns since 2011 but this year will be the first time that the Strasbourg-based outfit will contest a full season. Having been on the top step of the podium in past events, they are one to watch in 2013.
