The PEUGEOT 308 Racing Cup: driving enjoyment and a profitable investment for competing at international level
“The design of our latest racing car took into account all the observations that were expressed by our customers and we hope to win over even more buyers. Its performance credentials and the enjoyment it delivers mark a real step forward and we have paid very close attention to running costs, ” explains Laurent GUYOT, Manager of Peugeot Sport’s Customer Competition department. “The 308 Racing Cup is a particularly interesting investment for teams because it is eligible to compete in a variety of championships, so its resale value will be high, which in turn contributes to bringing down running costs.”
In addition to Peugeot Sport’s own single-make racing series – which, in 2017, will take in five meetings of the new Championnat de France des Circuits FFSA, plus a curtain-raiser appearance ahead of the TOTAL 24 Hours of Spa – the PEUGEOT 308 Racing Cup is eligible for numerous international sprint and endurance competitions, including the TCR Series, ETCC, TCES (Touring Car Endurance Series), VLN (Germany), CER (Spain), CITE (Italy) and 24H Series.
“We are delighted that this car is on its way to a customer like Autohaus Nett Motorsport in Germany to contest the VLN, ” says Peugeot Citroën Racing Shop Director Mayeul TYL. “It confirms that the 308 Racing Cup has met its objective which was to address the needs of an exacting international clientele looking for performance and pleasure behind the wheel.”
The pre-tax ready-to-race price of the PEUGEOT 308 Racing Cup is €74, 900.
The 2017 PEUGEOT 308 Racing Cup begins in April with the Coupes de Pâques meeting at Nogaro, France. The winner of the series will win a PEUGEOT 308 Racing Cup complete with a ‘TCR Perfo’ kit. For more information, contact Laurent GUYOT (firstname.lastname@example.org ).
