British GT News: Setback for Ferdinand Habsburg as New Alpine A424 LMDh Suffers Dramatic Crash During Testing

    March 27th, Motorland Aragon – In a testing session for the upcoming FIA World Endurance Championship (WEC) season, Austrian driver Ferdinand Habsburg was putting the new Alpine A424 LMDh through its paces when disaster struck.

    The incident occurred during the final hour of the test, as a mechanical failure on the front axle sent the car hurtling straight into the wall at Turn 7, dealing a significant blow to Habsburg’s hopes for the year ahead.

    “Just days earlier, the 25-year-old had reason to be optimistic, having finished a strong seventh in the season-opening 1812Km race in Qatar alongside his teammates Paul-Loup Chatin and Charles Milesi in the #35 entry. The team’s canny fuel-saving strategy had paid dividends, allowing them to punch above their weight.”

    However, this latest setback is sure to change the course of Habsburg’s 2023 campaign. The damage sustained to the car during the Motorland Aragon test will require extensive repairs, potentially disrupting the team’s preparations for the next round of the WEC championship.

    Fans and industry enthusiasts will be closely following the situation as the Alpine squad works to get the #35 car back on track and ready to challenge for top results in the highly competitive LMDh class. Though this incident is undoubtedly a significant blow, the resilience and determination of the team will be put to the test as they aim to bounce back stronger than ever.
