ALPINE'S 'LA PISTE BLEUE' TRACK DAY TOUR COMES TO THE UK

  • La Piste Bleue gives Alpine owners the opportunity to experience the thrills of driving their car on track
  • European tour comes to the UK on Thursday 18th April 2019
  • UK track day hosted at Goodwood Motor Circuit, near Chichester


Alpine will continue to host its series of exclusive customer track days across Europe throughout 2019. The UK date of the ‘La Piste Bleue’ series has been confirmed for 18th April. The venue is the world-famous Goodwood Motor Circuit in Chichester and owners of Alpines from any era are invited to take part..

La Piste Bleue
Alpine set up its La Piste Bleue customer track day program last year. The one-day events bring together Alpine owners and enthusiasts and gives them an opportunity to drive their cars on racing circuits around Europe. In addition, it serves as a networking event in which likeminded Alpine fans can come together and discuss their love for the marque and for motoring.

Goodwood Motor Circuit has a rich history and its fast, flowing nature makes it a serious test for driving at the limit in a safe environment. Prior to going on track each participant receives a full briefing and expert guidance on the characteristics of the circuit.

La Piste Bleue includes a morning and an afternoon track session, lunch and access to the Alpine Lounge, an immersive Alpine branded environment, with use of a driving simulator. For an additional cost there is the option of an unmissable passenger ride in the Alpine A110 Cup 270hp racing car.

Alpine in the UK
After many high-profile award wins from across the UK and international motoring media in 2018, the Alpine A110 is forging a reputation as a genuine driver’s car. Initially available as the A110 Première Edition, the two-seat sports car is now available in the A110 Pure and A110 Légende specifications.

The A110 Pure is focused on the connection between driver and machine and has a minimalist approach. Lightweight, it has 13.1kg Sabelt monocoque seats and 17-inch light alloy wheels. Leather and microfibre seat upholstery combined with a matte carbon fibre interior trim, to hint at Pure’s sporting intent.

Displaying the character of a GT, the A110 Légende is the more sophisticated and refined edition of the A110. Its distinguishing features include six-way adjustable seats in black or brown leather and a lightweight Focal audio system that’s optimised to the A110’s cabin.
