First Tests In Portugal For Isotta Franschini Duqueine Team

Story By: ISOTTA FRASCHINI DUQUEINE TEAM – ESTORIL, PORTUGAL – First tests with the Tipo 6 LMH – Competizione for the Isotta Fraschini Duqueine team with drivers Alejandro Garcia and Jean-Karl Vernay ahead of the FIA WEC 2024 World Endurance Championship. With two days of testing in Estoril, Portugal, three of the four FIA homologation phases were concluded.

The Isotta Fraschini Duqueine Team, the official name for the 2024 season, is warming its engines ahead of the important world competition, with its first stop in Qatar, dedicated to race cars built for endurance races, including the renowned 24 Hours of Le Mans. The team’s name was born from the union between the historic Italian car manufacturer, which will take care of technical management, and the French company Duqueine, which will focus instead on sporting activities.

In Portugal, alongside the already broken-in Jean-Karl Vernay, Alejandro García González, a young driver from Mexico, European endurance champion in the LMP3 class, tried his hand for the first time at the wheel of the prestigious vehicle crafted by the historic Milanese manufacturer. The Tipo 6 LMH – Competizione already promises high performance and excellent range; several sessions were held on the Lusitanian track to simulate the various phases of the race: more than 1,200 kilometers of testing to be prepared in the face of all eventualities.
