Jules Gounon  - reserve driver WEC

"Motorsport is deeply rooted in Jules Gounon's DNA as his father competed in F1 and finished on the podium at the 24 Hours of Le Mans. Runner-up to Anthoine Hubert in F4, he quickly proved himself in GT with an ADAC GT Masters title and victories in the 24 Hours of Spa. A winner of the GT World Challenge Europe Endurance Cup and the Intercontinental GT Challenge, Jules has established himself as one of the leading names in the discipline. Also victorious at the 24 Hours of Daytona in 2023, the Andorran-licensed Frenchman will support Alpine throughout the season as reserve driver.

"I am extremely pleased to join Alpine in the premier Hypercar category. I got my first taste of it with the A424 during testing in Barcelona. I must admit it is incredible to be involved in this formidable human adventure at the dawn of what I see as the new golden era of endurance racing. On a personal level, I will try to bring my experience and GT racing knowledge to the table, as I see a lot of similarities with the LMDh, particularly the weight and power."
