Peugeot will make its debut at the 6 Hours of Monza 2022 in the WEC as announced in the entry list

The long-awaited Peugeot 9X8 will make its race debut at Monza for the fourth round of the 2022 FIA World Endurance Championship on 10 July and will join the second largest parterre in FIA WEC history.

Paul di Resta and Loic Duval will lead the teams for the fourth round of the FIA WEC respectively entered under numbers 93 and 94, with the remainder of the driver line-up consisting of the team of Mikkel Jensen, Gustavo Menezes, James Rossiter and Jean-Eric Vergne, yet to be assigned to specific cars.

The 6 Hours of Monza takes place one month after the 24 Hours of Le Mans in June and, beyond the entry of the Peugeot, the Hypercar class remains unchanged with the winning Alpine at Sebring, which is currently ahead of the Spa winners, the Toyota, and Glickenhaus enters the title race before the most important race in La Sarthe. With the pair of Peugeots, the Monza class will consist of six cars, with two Toyotas, an Alpine and a Glickenhaus in action.

In LMP2, the lineup of cars and drivers is the same as in Spa, with one exception: Penske # 5 which will retire for the rest of the season after Le Mans and will therefore not be present at Monza.

In LMGTE Pro and LMGTE Am it’s all like in Spa, with 5 cars (a pair of Ferraris and Porches against a single Corvette) and in the AM, there are 13 cars, with 5 Ferraris and Porches against 3 Aston Martins.

Monza has been included in the WEC calendar since last year, but previously it has been the protagonist of several endurance racing series. The iconic race venue, located in one of the largest city parks in Europe, offers a real party for fans and riders. Before Monza, of course, there will be the Jewel of the Crown, the 24 Hours of Le Mans with double points, and everything could change in the standings.

The action in Monza will be with free practice on Friday (8 July) afternoon, other free practice on Saturday (9 July), then qualifying on Saturday evening and after the actual race which starts at 12.00 CET on Sunday 10 July.
