• Eric Boullier has been announced as the managing director of the French GP
  • Boullier worked as an engineer for Racing Engineering
  • The French GP is also announcing the mobility plan

The French Grand Prix has been making changes as they name Eric Boullier, the managing director of the French GP.

The other announcement was the unveiling of a “mobility plan.”

According to the French GP, the mobility plan is meant to help all fans attend the French GP events over at the Circuit Paul Ricard.

Eric Boullier worked as an engineer for Racing Engineering and the junior single-seater squad, DAMS.

In 2010, he moved on to become the head of the Renault/Lotus Formula 1 Team.

Boullier would, later on, become the Competition Director when he joined the McLaren squad and left that position in 2018.

Boullier had a hand in helping the French GP return to the 2018 calendar.

In February 2019, Boullier held the position of Strategic Sports and Operational Advisor while at the same time filling in the position as Ambassador for the Grand Prix.

In his newly appointed position, Boullier will definitely have more input into the French GP and how the event is run.

Boullier speaking about his new appointment, said he was happy and proud to be involved in what he called a beautiful project which is the Formula 1 Grand Prix De France.

He also stated he was looking forward to furthering his input into the success of the French GP motorsport on French soil.

Boullier thanked the French GP President Christian Estrosi, and the GIP Grand Prix de France Le Castellet for the trust they showed him to give him the position.

The first upcoming event on June 28th, 2020, will be the first order of business for Boullier and the French GP as proposals and ideas for the mobility plan continue to trickle in.

Some of the many changes that are being discussed include the park extension and a look at the ride shuttle service range. Other plans and changes include a larger campsite.

There are suggestions as well, to look at improving local traffic routes with the idea of a proposed priority lane being thrown into the mix.

For sports fans coming to the events and who are carpooling, there is going to be a reserved parking area from them, which is yet another proposal being looked at under the “mobility plan.”

The organizer has considered appealing to fans based outside of France with shuttles from Barcelona, Eindhoven, and Amsterdam, providing packages inclusive of three nights of camping along with race tickets for the event.
