An Interview with The Boss – Stephane Ratel

Posted by Ed Fahey on February 5, 2011

The Boss - Mr Ratel

Every motorsport series needs a Boss – or to put it more officially a class co-ordinator and for FIA GT1/3 its this man, Stephane Ratel, who also serves as both founder and CEO of these series. The informed Sportscar news site DailySportsCar have interviewed him and the links are below, which for a change you do not have to pay to read, as DSC is majorly a paid subscription site

PT1: GT1

PT2: FIA GT3 and Blancpain Endurance Series

PT3: The Future

Makes for interesting reading – mentions of Lexus entering GT1, GT1’s future, returning to racing in the USA, but sadly GT2 is no more for FIA GT and GT3 is seen as the long term option, with the possbilities of upgrading GT3 cars to GT1 spec among other things.
