Team Peugeot TotalEnergies has confirmed the driver combinations for its FIA World Endurance Championship debut at Monza next month.

The French manufacturer revealed Wednesday that Paul Di Resta, Mikkel Jensen and Jean-Eric Vergne will pilot the No. 93 Peugeot 9X8, with the No. 94 Hypercar class entry to be driven by James Rossiter, Gustavo Menezes and Loic Duval.

The names of Rossiter, Duval and Di Resta were shown together on the No. 93 car during the recent launch at Portimao, but have since been split up between the two Le Mans Hypercars.

“We have finalized our two crews for the 9X8’s debut race at Monza following multiple test sessions and painstaking analysis of data, driving styles and individual relationships,” said technical director Olivier Jansonnie.

“Over the course of the car’s design and development, the experience, technical input and team spirit brought to the table by all our drivers have been absolutely essential.”

While having forgone this weekend’s 24 Hours of Le Mans, Peugeot has several exhibitions at Circuit de la Sarthe to celebrate its its previous success in the French endurance classic.
