Alpine represented by two cars in LMP2 at Le Mans
With all entries for 2017 24 Hours of Le Mans confirmed it has emerged French chassis manufacturer, Alpine, has just two cars entered among 25 LMP2 entries.
“Step by step, we are putting the team together for the 2017 season,” said deputy managing director of Alpine, Bernard Ollivier.
