French FFSA GT Championship 2013 Le Vigeant round 4 July 6-7, Enzo Guibbert wants front of stage
For his debut in the French FFSA GT Championship at the Bugatti, Enzo Guibbert, the “Volant Euroformula” 2012, stepped up on the podium for second place in Race 2 at the wheel of his Porsche 997 GT3-R managed by Philippe Alméras’ Pro GT Team. Since then though he has not been able to repeat the performance.
Speaking of which, tell us about the strengths and weaknesses of your Porsche 997 GT3-R and give us your opinion of the Val de Vienne circuit. “The Porsche 997 GT3-R is one of the best GT cars, she’s really competitive. She handles well in tight bends with good traction and good acceleration coming out. She balances well through wide corners. The problem we’re running into at the moment is the wear on the tyres in long relays. We’re working on a solution so we can exploit the full potential of the car. Where Le Vigeant is concerned, I can’t wait to get there! It’s a circuit I know well and really like. I got my first pole position there!”
What are your objectives for Val de Vienne and the end of the season? “First, we need a good qualifying session which will allow me to drive from the front and hand the car over to my co-driver, Eric Dermont, for the best possible restart. If I can do that, Eric will know what to do to get to the finish. I need to do my job! We hope to get back on a podium as soon as possible, it’s our objective for the end of the season even if I still hope for a victory at the back of my mind. It would be a nice reward for all the people who have helped me and for the Euroformula School!”
As we can see, Enzo Guibbert, the “Volant Euroformula” 2012, is not lacking in ambition, it’s up to him to make it happen. Let’s leave the last word to Laurent Fradon, the director of the Euroformula School: “I’m not worried because Enzo has shown us he has the skills required to win. He has to be patient and the results will follow. He is on the best team on the circuit which should make it easier for him. I’m keen to see Enzo at Vigeant.” The French GT championship, part of GT Tour and its many disciplines, will meet this weekend, July 6 and 7 on the Vigeant circuit.
