Peugeot is already hard at work on a gearshift fix that hampered the performance of its WEC car at the Sebring 12 Hours race. The French manufacturer experienced a difficult race at the iconic circuit, as an issue with the gearshift system prevented the #7 car from making the most of its potential.
The issue was identified during the race and Peugeot is now working diligently to address it. With the next round of the WEC season taking place at Spa-Francorchamps, the team is keen to ensure that the problem has been resolved in time for the Belgian classic.
Peugeot has not released details of the nature of the problem, but it is believed that a technical fault caused the shift to be slower than usual. This meant that the car was unable to make the most of its superior power and handling, leaving it unable to challenge the front-running cars.
The team is confident that the issue can be rectified in time for the next race, and is working hard to ensure that the car is running at its best for the Spa event. Peugeot has invested heavily in the WEC program, and is determined to make the most of the opportunity to compete at the highest level.
The French manufacturer is hopeful that the gearshift issue can be solved in time for the Spa race, allowing it to compete for the victory it had been targeting at Sebring. With the next round of the WEC season just around the corner, Peugeot is confident that it can put the gearshift issue behind it and return to competitive form.
