Bravo to Groupama for maybe the best foiling tack we’ve seen yet from an AC cat, along with a pretty good dismount from what appears to be the wing trimmer getting clear from danger with style!

Two of France’s most successful racers ever share the nickname “Le Professeur”, and both of them – former F1 World Champ Alain Prost and 2-time Vendee Globe winner Michel Desjoyeaux – were on hand for the baptism of Groupama Team France’s new AC45 Turbo/Test platform on Monday. Designed by a team led by our old friend Martin Fischer (who co-designed Franck Cammas’ C-Class killer), this thing almost looks more at home on the Mulsanne Straight than it does in Bermuda.
While only the biggest upset chaser would be betting on GTF to take Larry’s bauble away, we can dream…go here for the very cool launch video.
