Team achievements

Over the last six years, Signatech Alpine Matmut has drawn up one of the most impressive list of achievements in the LMP2 class, with two victories at the 24 Hours of Le Mans (2016 and 2018), the FIA Endurance Trophies for Drivers and Teams in the World Endurance Championship (2016) and two European Le Mans Series titles (2013 and 2014).

Team goals for the 2019 24 Hours of Le Mans

Signatech Alpine Matmut has shown remarkable consistency, helping it finish on the podium at the seven previous rounds of the Super Season, and is thus a clear favourite to retain its title at Circuit de la Sarthe. A Le Mans win would also mean snatching a second World Endurance Championship (WEC) title from the hands of Jackie Chan DC Racing and its two Oreca 07-Gibsons.
