Peugoet back at Le Mans?

This weeks British Motorsport News newspaper this week reports that Peugoet are currently assessing a full scale return to Le Mans for 2006, a decision is expected by March 15th. Peugoet managing director Fredric Saintgeours has confirmed there will be a full scale works effort in 2006 after its withdrawl from the WRC at the end of this season. Peugoet sport director Corrado Provera said: "Le Mans is one of the possibilites but we havent made a decision yet."

Would be great to see Peugoet back in sportscar racing, sooner rather than later too.

I think the biggest chance of Peugeot returning to Le Mans will be if I show up. Other than that, I'm not sure.

There has been discussion//rumours about this since they pulled out of WRC. To be frank, I'd half expected them to be a suprise entry in 05'.

Audi NEEDS to have a manufacturer to race against, or there really isn't a point in going further with the program.

Just prototype racing itself is in need of another manufacturer entry. Someone, anyone, with a publically-familiar name to give Audi a real run for their money. Peugeot would be ideal, I didn't get to see 'em last time they were around, would love to see them this time.

Peugeot are proven with WRC and sportscars from the past, they're European so beating Audi would probably mean more to them than an American or Japanese manufacturer. However, would be nice to see some American or Japanese company have a go at LMP1 too...

Who would Peugeot get to drive for them? They can't exactly draft in any rally drivers, can they... It's not like they have any top drivers signed to them from their current activities who are going to be familiar with Le Mans, is it?

Guess it depends who's free to drive anywhere in '06...

hopefully Nissan and Porsche can fill that role in 2006 as well

getting drivers isnt that big of a problem. if they need some and were running short just go over to GARRA and start plucking some of the old ALMS/LeMans drivers out and putting them back where they belong. Magnussen, papis, pilgrim, etc. the cars need to be built before you start worrying about drivers. just my $.02

I'd be glad to see Peugeot and Citroen interrested by LM, but they're more expected in WTCC (Peugeot) and Rally-raid (Citroen) - they need to sell cars abroad (Africa, east Europe, China, south America), and have no GT in their range...

Let's wait and, but I wouldn't count on it too much, though ; it will be a nice surprise if a program arises.

Who said the car would be a GT? Id have thought that a LMP 1 would be far more likely.
