D-20 before the first race of the Alpine Elf Europa Cup

-  the countdown is accelerating!





The season is fast approaching for the competitors in the 2018 Alpine Elf Europa Cup. While the teams take possession of their Alpine A110 Cup cars, the drivers fill the entry list.



Everyone seems determined to make history for the return of the Alpine field to the European circuits.



 
PARTNERS OF CHOICE!



With Elf (a Total brand) as title sponsor, the series has been renamed the Alpine Elf Europa Cup. This is a logical tie-up with the shared history between the two brands and the prolonged presence of Elf on the bodywork of the Alpine A470 in the FIA WEC World Endurance Championship.


Michelin is the official partner and exclusive tyre supplier for the Alpine A100 Cup cars. The list of sponsors for the Alpine-Elf Europa Cup is completed by four brands synonymous with innovation and quality in their respective domains: Tissot (horology), Bahco (tools), Ixell (bodywork products and services) and Sabelt (racing safety equipment).



DELIVERIES IN PROGRESS …



The first few months of the year were intense for the technicians charged with assembling the Alpine A100 Cup cars. Assembled at Signatech according to strict specifications to be delivered ready to be raced, the first cars were delivered on April 25.




 Ten cars have now made their way to the workshops of their respective teams and the final deliveries will extend until May 18.




THE ENTRIES DISCLOSED


17 names are now confirmed on the provisional list of entries. The CMR team will enter four cars for drivers Vincent Beltoise, Grégory Romano, Nyls Stievenart and Pierre Sancinena. Autosport GP will be just as well represented with Jean-Baptiste Mela, Marc Sevestre / Julien Neveu (who will share the same car), Pierre Macchi and Laurent Hurgon.



Milan Compétition will enter three A110 Cup with the ‘boss’ Nicolas Milan joined by Philippe Bourgois and Thomas Padovani. Sylvain Noël will also race for his own squad along with Mathieu Blaise.



The Automeca team will make its circuit racing debut with Stéphane Proux and Franc Rouxel. The Duty Car outfit will have Italian Alessandro Sebasti Scalera behind the wheel of their A110 Cup car.




FIRST TIME ON TRACK AT NOGARO!



Prior to the first meeting of the season on the weekend of June 1-2 at Circuit Paul Ricard, the Alpine Elf Europa Cup competitors will head to Nogaro for two days of collective tests on May 22-23.



It will be a great opportunity for the drivers and teams to get to know their Alpina A110 Cup cars…and their adversaries!
