Tristan Gommendy

“It is with great pleasure that I join DUQUEINE Team. I sincerely thank Gilles DUQUEINE and Max Favard for their confidence and the role they entrusted me. Their desire to create the best possible crew shows a lot about their ambitions. I know perfectly Jonathan Hirschi with whom I enjoy working. I am also impatient to share the wheel with Konstantin who I followed last year, a very fast driver. Three of us will form a homogeneous crew.”

This campaign promises to be higher than ever but we will give everything to reach this podium goal!”
