Alpine Cars have been might busy of late. The popular A110 was recently given a massive steroid dose to beef it up in all areas, and so the A110 R hit the streets. Then, with a bunch of iconic races happening throughout June, the company took the opportunity to get involved. The new A110 R was given one serious makeover complete with massive oversized aero so it’s better suited to take on the legendary Pikes Peak International Hillclimb. Now, with the annual 24 Hours of Le Mans being in the motoring news for the last week, the automaker has announced that it will have an entry in the newly-formed Hypercar category in 2024 - which is already a mere 6 months away. It won’t be the niche automaker’s first foray into the competitive French endurance race, the company actually had an outright win way back in 1978. I say way back with a scowl on my face because that’s the year I was born. The automaker has over 60 years of motorsport history though, and so with a new vigour and some amazing new technologies, Alpine is back. Combining the know-how of Alpine Racing and Signatech with the unique styling of the design department, the racecar that’s been named the A424_β will represent the brand in next year’s race in a class that looks set to be one of the most watched. Everyone and their dog has a new tech EV or hybrid racecar looking to show off in the class.
