RGR Sport will not contest the WEC in the season 2017


RGR Sport was one of the revelations of the season 2016
of the WEC. The formation of mexican, with Ricardo Gonzalez to the front, he made his debut in the
World of Resistance with a Ligier JS P2 and with a ‘line up’
completed Bruno Senna and Filipe Albuquerque. With such ingredients is not of
no wonder that the team got a couple wins in the class LMP2, and the
end of the season was proclaimed champion of his division. However,
these successes have not served to ensure the continuity of the team and
Ricardo Gonzalez has announced that RGR Sport will not compete in the World
Resistance in 2017

The pilot and skipper of the team has confirmed that the
efforts to continue in the WEC have not been sufficient, among other
things could mean that there is not a Ligier JS P217 new generation
in the competition. This has been explained Ricardo Gonzalez in ‘Sportscar365’,
in which he said: The conditions of the world economy are quite hard,
particularly in Mexico. For me it is an important year for my business
personal. So the combination of these two factors has led us to take
a one-year sabbatical. This is not the way in which we wanted to follow this year, but
we are hoping to be able to continue in the future”.

Toni Calderon, head of the team, he has explained in
depth the situation of the team, associated with the new government of the united States and of Mexico’s position in this regard: “For us the problem is not that
now it might be difficult, , but the uncertainty of whether there are worse things by getting.
We needed to do a follow up and check that at least we are so
strong as last year. For us to make a program with half of
budget or without the right staff it’s not worth
. We decided to take a step
back, regroup and take a break to see what we can do in the future
and how we can come back. a year Ago, no one knew what RGR
Sport was
