The first track testing photos of the new 908 HDi in raw carbon fiber with a few sponsor stickers at the Paul Ricard circuit in France were just revealed. Peugeot also announced the addition of ChampCar veteran Sebastien Bourdais and former Formula 1 champion Jacques Villeneuve to the driving lineup for the two cars running at LeMans.
