Peugeot is on track with its new 90X Le Mans challenger

Article by Christian A., on October 31, 2010

Peugeot claims that its new Le Mans challenger (codenamed the 90X) remains on target after the first track test of the car at Monza that lasted three days.

This car isn’t what should be expected of the 2011 model but it does have the mandatory fin on the rear end, as well as other changes.

According to Peugeot's motorsport chief Olivier Quesnel, the testing signified an “important milestone.” He said that the company wanted to test it on a track before the year ended.

Still, Quesnel said that “there is still a long way to go” and more work to be done as it prepares for 2011. He disclosed that during the test, the 90X was not running with its final engine configuration. It’s expected that Peugeot will use a hybrid power unit.

Bruno Famin, the team's technical director, said that to date, no definite decision on the engine type has been made.

He added that the company continues to explore options when it comes to the engine and the technology that will be used. He also revealed that work on the engine's development is ongoing. [via Autosport]
