Jack Leconte, 'a project that is a bit special'

For Larbre Competition, two partnerships and as many different cars would lead to double victory in LM GTE Am in the 79th Le Mans 24 Hours.

For Larbre Competition, two partnerships and as many different cars would lead to double victory in LM GTE Am in the 79th Le Mans 24 Hours. Team boss Jack Leconte speaks of this race that is definitely like no other.

Jack Leconte: “This year our Le Mans project was a special one, with the objective to reunite all members of the Larbre family from over the years. We started by winning twice with Porsche in 1993 and 1994 which included our friends Raymond Narac and Franck Rava who have since moved on and created their own professional organisation. I saw that in the current economic situation it would be too difficult for IMSA and Larbre to put together a two-car team for Le Mans. Instead, we decided to run a joint effort with Porsche and rookie drivers which Larbre has had a tradition of doing down the years. Putting this well-organised project together is a fantastic reward. The launch of our partnership with General Motors and Corvette Racing has also been a total success. We have worked together perfectly in the pursuit of a shared value, victory, with each side doing the maximum to obtain the best possible performance. The Pratt & Miller team has also given everything to win the GTE Pro class following Jan Magnussen’s and the #74 car’s accident. Reunited on the Le Mans 24 Hours podium, we are only at the start of a great story.”
