Groupama_Team_France_110716_0337-1 (1)

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.
