Alpine A480Edit

On September 10th 2020, Auto Hebdo reported that the Signatech Alpine team competing in LMP2 during the 2019-20 WEC season would step up to the new Le Mans Hypercar class with a re-badged R13, given that the Hypercar rules allowed for non-hybrid LMP1 cars to be run in the class in the first year of competition.[4] The report was then confirmed by Alpine on September 12th.[5][6] On January 21st 2021, the entry list for the 2021 FIA World Endurance Championship season was released, where the entry was confirmed and the car rename to Alpine A480 made official, with André Negrão being one of the drivers.[7] The rest of the lineup was announced on January 26, with Nicolas Lapierre and Matthieu Vaxivière joining Negrão.[8]
