PostSubject: Pescarolo   Thu Oct 21, 2010 7:47 pm

2 years ago Henri's team were given a Peugeot 908 hdi to run at le mans which was crashed by Benoit Treluyer, not reallt Benoit's fault but it cost Henri a lot of money as it wasn't insured. Wheater thats releateted to what happen next only Henri really knows.
For the Asain Le mans series the pescarolo team was bought into and everything seemed fine until the deal went through when Henri was kicked out of his own team.
Fast Foward to Le mans 2010 and there is no Pescarolo, the cars the team it's gone apart from the two Oak Racing LMP2 cars. All very sad the so called investers have turned out not to be.
Fast Forward a little further to the middle of last week, whats left of the team is up for aution. Two LMP1 chassis the work shows the right everything.
The winner of that aution was Jacques Nicolet (from Oak racing, a partner and a third invester) who paid 400,000 (not sure if it's dollors or euro's) for what was left and then gave almost everything back to Henri, they kept the rights to the p2 car as they want to be a constructor in the future.
