Paul Petit: « I have a really good first impression on the championship »

ELMS - 17/08/2016

After two seasons in VdeV Endurance Series (2014/2015), Paul Petit is competing in his first season in ELMS with the n°9 Graff Ligier JS P3, with his teammates Enzo Guibbert and Eric Trouillet. Paul is currently fourth in the LMP3 team championship classification and we met him before round four of the season that will take place the 28th of August in Le Castellet in France.

Which part of the Paul Ricard track is your favourite?

My favourite part is the last one; it’s quick with high speed turns where it’s possible to make a difference.

With 20 cars in the LMP3 grid, who do you think is your main rival?

For me, our main rival this season is United Autosports with their two cars, but the uniformity of the line-up of the n°19 Duqueine Engineering Ligier of David Hallyday, Dino Lunardi and David Droux, makes it a fierce opponent.

It’s your first season in ELMS, what are your impressions about the championship?

I have a really good impression of the championship for my first season. I think that it is really professional both in terms of organisation and sporting. The races are really tough and highly competitive and it’s nice to fight for victory in this high level championship.

What is your biggest challenge for the end of the season?

To finish on the championship podium and to get a first win. The title will be hard to get but we will fight until the end. Mathematically everything is still possible and we have a good margin of improvement.
