Pescarolo team liquidates Henri Pescarolo's endurance team was liquidated by a French court after a six-month period during which it was protected under law from its creditors.
In 2010, Pescarolo Sport – then owned by French businessman Jean Ply – was liquidated, but Henri Pescarolo was able to purchase the cars and equipment with the held of private investors.
He then created Pescarolo Team, which raced a Pescarolo and a Dome in last year's 24 Hours of Le Mans. However, the race turned out to be a complete disaster as both cars broke their Judd engines.

Henri Pescarolo had also struck a deal with the Luxury Racing Ferrari team to built a brand new car. But the deal eventually broke down, leaving Pescarolo with huge debts.
Pescarolo has not ruled out continuing as a team owner.
"This means that Pescarolo Team doesn't exist any more as a company, but if I want to, I can continue. I still own the workshops and all the mechanics (who were paid by the government during the protection period) are available”, Pescarolo said.
