Boudy leaves Peugeot Sport
JEAN-PIERRE BOUDY, the technical director of the old Peugeot Sport, has left the company, which has now been reorganized by its new owner Asiatech. The 56-year-old engineer has been with Peugeot Sport since leaving his position as head of research and development at the Renault Sport F1 program in 1983. He has been technical director since the early 1990s when he took over the role from Andre de Cortanze.
Trained by France's famous competition engine builder Amedee Gordini, Boudy's engines have not been very successful in recent years and his move is not a surprise. The technical directorship of Asiatech is now held by chassis engineer Enrique Scalabroni who is managing the various different design departments at Peugeot Sport. The company says that it has lost virtually none of the other Peugeot Sport staff although it remains to be seen whether this will continue to be the case as nearby Renault Sport expands and goes out looking for experienced F1 engine men.
