Scrolling down the grid, two exceptional names jump out: nine-time World Rally Champion Sébastien Loeb along with Romain Dumas, two-time winner of the 24H of Le Mans in the Porsche 911 GT3 Cup of the Orchid Racing team. For the first time at Mugello, Loeb will also share the adventure with partner Laurène Godey, who races in the Swiss team's other Porsche. "We had been talking with Romain (Dumas) for a long time about doing something together and this opportunity came up thanks to the Porche Orchid team in Geneva. We are here to have fun and it is nice to share this passion with Laurène as well. This is the first time for me at Mugello, a very beautiful and challenging track: you can never let your guard down. In the simulator you don't realize the height difference. Yesterday I tried the car for the first time." "The atmosphere in the pit box is very good, we had been talking to Seb for a long time about doing something together, and thanks to Porsche Genève we succeeded," Dumas related. "The goal is to have fun. We still have a nice lineup. Mugello is a very nice, difficult track. It has very fast corners and it would be very interesting to see a WEC race here."
