Alice Team to run special livery in France

Alice Team to run special livery in France

The Alice Team will use a blue, white and red theme on their bikes at Le Mans on Sunday afternoon, although riders Toni Elias and Sylvain Guintoli were hoping for bigger changes this weekend.

The Alice Team will tomorrow be using a special French-themed livery with both their riders, and will be looking to display it to the other riders as they pass them in the Le Mans race. However, their task was made difficult by a tough qualifying session, in which infamiliarity with the Desmosedici GP8 Sat caused further problems for Toni Elias and Sylvain Guintoli.

Toni Elias – 14th

`I am stubborn and I don´tt give up. Today we have improved, but surely not enough to be competitive. The Team is working well, but in the weekend of a race it is not possible to make big improvements. We must use the time at our disposal to try different tyres and the adjustments for the race. The weather forecast are changing hour after hour, but I hope there will be a dry race tomorrow to allow me to get used to my Ducati even more.´

Sylvain Guintoli – 16th

`We are too far from the first riders. I am still trying to adapt to the bike. It´s not easy, especially on this circuit. In tomorrow´s warm up we must complete as many laps as possible. The race can be really strange here. If I start well, I can try to stay with the fastest riders. Moreover, the weather changes really quick here, even if the forecast indicates a dry race for the afternoon.´
