The 78th Grand prix, from 17th to 19th May, will offer a maximum number of participants in at least 6 of the 7 disciplines on the programme. Details of a sporting success announced.
To fill up on car racing, is re-assuring for the organisers. It’s a pleasure for the spectators. One performance just about to be a success for Pau 2019.
The French Championship FFSA GT, the F4 French Championship, the Funyo Sprint Cup in Sport proto, the Twin’Cup supplemented by the Adour Ocean Cup, the Legend Cars Cup and the Ferdinand Cup all show already participation rates that will eventuate in the sign « Full ! » being placed at the entrance of the different paddocks.
The Euroformula Open is not revealing the exact number of F3 on the grid, but let’s bet that the test programmed in April, before the first round at Castellet then the second at Pau, results in an even richer international pack.
The French Championship FFSA GT promises to be more revealing than ever. The proof ? Arrival of the new Porsche Cayman and the Aston Martin Vantage which will come and join the other models already approved by 9 other manufacturers.
Why the arrival of these prestigious models ? Because they can play to win in a championship that is balanced again by a new scale of performances offering faster lap times.
On the track, dreams at every turn, on every spectacular acceleration and braking, fasten your seat belts : Alpine A110, Aston Martin Vantage, Audi R8 LMS, BMW M4, Chevrolet Camaro, Ford Mustang, Ginetta G55, KTM X-Bow, McLaren 570S, Mercedes-AMG, Porsche 718 Cayman Clubsport MR
Soon, we will give you the names of those who will be at the steering wheel of these racing cars, notably on the very looked forward to Night event of Pau, on Saturday 18 May.
The F4 French Championship is the competition of reference for the young drivers of the single-seaters. Twenty or so drivers, male and female, French and foreigners aged between 14 and 23 years old will be faithful to Pau. The particularity of the 2019 vintage ? The championship is already full !
The accessible and high-performance prototypes of the Sprint Cup by Funyo-Sport are the great novelty of Pau 2019. With 4 races per weekend, and a number of races already full, the 20-minute sprints will take your breathe away.
The Adour Océan Cup comes to Pau to add strength to the always spectacular Twin’Cup. A cup of local drivers with slightly modified regulations as the candidates crowd the pre-grid. Facing them, an always imposing number of non-Bearnais, eager to give a lesson to the locals. It’s hot and passionate from March on and the first challenge of the season.
The Legends Car Cup is intimately linked to the Pau Grand Prix. 2019 is the year of renewal, that of a brand new motor : the modern Yamaha FZ09, a 900cm3 with liquid injection and cooling systems, over-vitamined thanks to their specific camshafts. The Legends cars put under the bonnet 140 ch adjoined to a 6 speed gearbox. « Wow ! », in Pau the Legands Car Cup is going to blow the hair from under the helmets and make these races even more spectacular.
The Ferdidnad Cup is open to all Porsches produced before 1995. They only race on the most prestigious tracks. At Pau, they serve as a superb and very symbolic link between the 2 Grand Prix. One Porsche in Pau, is not to be missed. A entire pack, even less. The race ? Full !
