Laurent Fradon, head of Euroformula said, “When I arrived at La Châtre we had an order book at “0” and we had to rebuild from scratch. The first year was very difficult but we took on the challenge and business picked up. It’s been difficult since 2009 because of the economic crisis but the last few months have shown some growth. The change of fleet will help us maintain that momentum.”
He added, “We also had to get ahead of our competition, win back young racing drivers who have not come because our old single-seaters are obsolete compared to those in use in all the championships. We also have our Euroformula Club whose members want to get behind the wheel of the later models. Even our “Volant” will benefit from the change of equipment with specific days as we’ll have days when we assign them with an engineer to them to help them improve faster. The new cars will give us the ‘edge’ we need take us to the next level and ensure the future of our business!”
The Formula Renault 2014 cars are to be decked in new livery in metallic grey and carbon black. Suggestions will be accepted through a competition planned on the website and Facebook and the best designer wins a training course as prize. Volant winners have thus far done strengthening of true single-seater racing.
