A very experienced gentleman driver, Eric Debard has chosen to join the Porsche Carrera Cup France this season. Eager to fight in a one-make cup, the native of Albi was not disappointed at the season opener in Catalonia: “ I had a lot of fun, it's a great championship with a lot of respect on the track. I like this principle where everyone has the same car. This is what I was looking for, it reminds me of my first years in motorsport. » For his baptism of fire, the Debard Automobiles by Racetivity driver scored a nice third place in race 2. 

Three weeks later, he is back at Paul Ricard with the desire to have fun while progressing: “ we must work to continue to improve. What is interesting is that we see that there is real room for improvement, particularly in terms of braking, the key point for the Porsche. I'm discovering the car, the team too, we're scratching our heads but we'll get there! » 

On a circuit that he knows very well, where he notably won the FIA ​​Motorsport Games in 2022 with Simon Gachet, Eric Debard intends to take advantage of his knowledge of the terrain to progress in the hierarchy of his category. “ It's a little easier because I know where to put the wheels. From the first session, I was in the rhythm (he finished 3rd in EL1 in Am) but the others drive well too. They're not waiting for me! » Immediately in the right car, Eric Debard hopes to return to the podium this weekend and why not achieve his first victory in the Var.
