The GIP Grand Prix de France – Le Castellet will host the Alpine Elf Europa Cup on the Circuit Paul Ricard as a support race during the 10th round of the FIA Formula 1 World Championship on June 26th, 27th and 28th.
Competitors registered for this Alpine Elf Europa Cup race will have the opportunity to drive in different sessions: two free practice sessions, two qualifying sessions and two races are on the programme.
Launched in 2018, the Alpine Elf Europa Cup allows young hopefuls as well as experienced motorsport drivers to shine on Europe’s biggest circuits. These cars, developed by Alpine and Signatech, promise a breathtaking spectacle that will delight spectators.
In addition to the Alpine Elf Europa Cup, the Formula 1 Grand Prix de France weekend will be punctuated by two Clio Cup races, as well as various historic Formula 1 demonstrations.
Eric Boullier, Managing Director of the GIP Grand Prix de France – Le Castellet: “There is always a great interest from our spectators when it comes to the support races and activities to be seen on the track. Receiving such an exciting line-up as the Alpine Elf Europa Cup, which will soon start its third season, illustrates our desire to offer a diversified and complete show to our spectators.”
Philippe Sinault, Director of Signatech: ” We are extremely proud to be able to perform at the curtain-raiser of the Formula 1 French Grand Prix. The Circuit Paul Ricard and Alpine share a rich history where French Grand Prix have often been a common denominator. In this year 2020, when the elite of motorsport celebrates its seventieth birthday, Alpine its sixty-five years and the Circuit Paul Ricard its fifty years, we are therefore delighted to make such a nod to history while offering a real showcase to all our competitors! ”
