Nurburgring 24 hours: Two Peugeot “200 years” RCZ Cars Competing

By Auto News Log • April 15th, 2010

To mark the launch of its limited edition coupé, the Peugeot RCZ, and the Marque’s 200th anniversary, which will be celebrated on 15th and 16th May, Peugeot is competing for the first time in the Nürburgring 24 Hours race. This race is very popular in Germany and draws 220,000 spectators every year. Peugeot’s involvement will help to enhance the reputation of its new coupé, on a market that is very fond of sporty cars.

The two RCZs will display the numbers 200 and 201, to symbolise 200 years of excellence and emotion, and will be driven respectively by a Peugeot French team and a Peugeot German team.

Each team is composed of four “gentleman drivers”, enlightened motor racing enthusiasts, experienced drivers and fans of the Marque, including Jean-Philippe Peugeot, Vice-president of the PSA Group’s Supervisory Board, Stéphane Caillet, ground link technician, Cyrus Ayari, sales executive, and Olivier Perez, Peugeot marketing executive.

This competition will highlight the sporty nature of the RCZ, on sale in Europe from April onwards.
