•    The hectic 24 Hours of Le Mans week began with the technical and administrative checks.




•    The Signatech Alpine Matmut team passed scrutineering Monday afternoon in front of a large crowd despite threatening skies.


•    Nicolas Lapierre, André Negrão and Pierre Thiriet will be back behind the wheel of the n°36 Alpine A470 on Wednesday for free-practice and the opening qualifying session.



 


Like each year since 2012, the 24 Hours of Le Mans week kicked-off with Scrutineering at Place de la République.
Like the rest of the field, the Signatech Alpine Matmut was invited to present its Alpine 470 to the ACO and FIA stewards according to a precise procedure divided into three parts: dimensions, weight and flat bottom, as well as other important elements and safety. 


Nicolas Lapierre, André Negrão and Pierre Thiriet were also in attendance for the administrative checks, inspection of all their driver equipment as well as the weigh in.
After receiving the all clear following a thorough one-hour control from every possible angle, 'Les Bleus' posed for the official photo and met with the public that came out in large numbers before turning their attention to the next rendezvous: free-practice.


The four-hour session will begin Wednesday at 16:00, followed by the first qualifying session at 22:00.


 


 

 


Quotes


Philippe Sinault, Team principal Signatech Alpine Matmut



"Scrutineering is always a special moment to share with the public, who came out despite the wet conditions. Everyone is talking about the weather and the two days of qualifying promise to be a bit complicated. Le Mans is a race that choices its winner and you have to excel to win if the conditions are difficult.



I feel that the team is ready, everyone is aware of what is at stake, each person knows what they have to do and there is a certain amount of serenity among us. Now, we will fine-tune all the areas linked to the car with tyre change, driver change and bodywork change drills before the competition really gets underway on Wednesday."


 



Nicolas Lapierre

"Scrutineering is always a chance to see the car ready and up close as well as the entire team together. The 24 Hours of Le Mans week has begun and we have just until tomorrow to fine-tune the final details of our preparation and analyse one last time everything we learned during the Test Day."

 


André Negrão


"It was great to see so many people and meet with all the Alpine fans! Everything is ready to go and the week is very much underway. We have some more briefings, debriefings and events with Alpine and Total today, but then it is time to get back behind the wheel!"


 

Pierre Thiriet


“The traditional scrutineering day, the presentation of the team to the public and the technical and administrative checks might be mandatory, but it is always a pleasure with the crowd… And the little ray of sunshine that welcomed us! This first big moment is perfect to create some fond memories and to come together to mark the start of a very intense week in which we will try to repeat our winning performance of last year.”
