The French GT Tour or FFSA GT championship will be stopping off in Le Mans, at the Bugatti track, on 10 and 11 September for the fourth of its six rounds.
The weekend schedule comprises 14 races. The F4 drivers will be busy with four single-seater races in two days. These budding stars draw inspiration from their elders who followed the Elf young drivers programme. Former Elf trainee Sébastien Bourdais won LM GTE Pro at the 24 Hours of Le Mans this year.
F4 is often the first stage in sportscar racing for young drivers working their way up from karting, just as the Caterham Academy is the ideal introduction to motorsport, training absolute beginners to race in the Caterham Challenge and beyond. The two championships will be holding two races each - featuring the famous Caterham Seven - while the Porsche Carrera Cup France will be showcasing the no less iconic Porsche 911.
French constructors will have their share of the limelight, with two legs of the Renault Clio Cup and the Peugeot RCZ Racing Cup set to provide great entertainment with minimal investment.
Entry is free to this family-friendly event. The schedule includes myriad racing-related attractions for both the young and the young at heart.
