After enjoying a good end to the 2011 season, Extreme Limite was very pleased to be selected for the Le Mans 24 Hours, which had not been the case in 2011 when the team only got in after a withdrawal.
Patrice Roussel’s outfit is continuing with tried and tested equipment this year: the Norma M200 P and the Judd HK engine with lead driver Fabien Rosier, the 2011 Jean Rondeau Prize winner. The big news is the arrival full time of engineer, Christophe Boittin (ex-Barazi Epsilon), who already gave Roussel’s a helping hand team at Spa and Le Mans.
Even before testing the 2012 aerodynamic evolutions the boss of the Nantes-based team is confident: “We’ve got a solid base to work on so we’re feeling pretty optimistic. Our podium finish at Estoril, and the tests we carried out on the Bugatti circuit among others in mid-December have confirmed that our performance is improving in leaps and bounds!”
