Comunicato Stampa disponibile solo in lingua originale. 

Since it first broke cover last October, #peugeot #308 #racing Cup has clocked up a high number kilometres on and off the track and this has enabled the development team to gain an in-depth understanding of the new car. A combination of short and longer runs, as well as engine and suspension bench testing has allowed the engineers to fine-tune the new car’s competitive potential. At the end of 2015, it took part in an endurance race in Spain where it posted some very promising lap times.
