Peugeot will race two diesel-powered RCZ coupes in the D1T category which will be mostly standard, save for the compulsory safety equipment and a few select part from the Peugeot Sport "client motor racing" range.

Specifically, Peugeot will use the 2.0-litre HDi FAP RCZ which develops 147kW - with the brand hoping it has found a competitive balance between power and economy to take the class win.

The two RCZs will display the numbers 200 and 201, to symbolise 200 years of innovation, and will be driven respectively by a Peugeot French team and a Peugeot German team.

Among the list of drivers is Jean-Philippe Peugeot, Vice-president of the PSA Group's Supervisory Board, Stéphane Caillet, ground link technician, Cyrus Ayari, sales executive, and Olivier Perez, Peugeot Marketing executive.
