June 13-14 13:00 BST/ 12:00 GMT/ 15:00 Local 55 Cars, 4 Classes, 8.469 miles, 24 Hours, One (overall) winner... LMP1- 20 cars The pieces are set for a great three way battle at the front of the field. Who will it be; Audi, Peugeot, Aston Martin Racing? Or could Pescarolo or Oreca snatch a win after the promising debuts of their new cars (there's also a Peska 908 coming aswell, albeit an updated '08 car). Let's not forget about the (so far disappointing) Kolle's R10s. LMP2-12 Cars Will the return of the 2004 overall winners, Team Goh revive their glory with a class win in the RS Spyder? Or will Vitaphone racing start the LMP2 run with a win in their Porsche? Trying to stop them will be the Team Essex RS Spyder, as well as a Pescarolo, a handful of different Lola's and Zyteks and the solitary Radical SR9. EDIT: Vitaphone RS Spyder withrawn GT1- 7 Cars Corvette will want to finish their GT1 career with a 1-2 this year which is extremely likely, given the absence of the AMR DBR9s. The Spartak Murcielago R-GT will be stronger competitor this year, thanks to some updates on the car, could they take Lamborghini's first ever win at Le Mans? Former FIA GT champions Jetalliance Racing will also want a slice of the action in their trusty DBR9, aswell as the venerable Alphand Adventures with their two C6.Rs and JLOC Lambo. EDIT: IPB Spartak Reiter Lamborghini Withdrawn GT2- 16 cars Everyone may aswell assume buisness as usual in GT2, with two Risi F430's, a Flying Lizard RSR included in the total of 4 Porsches and 10 Ferraris. Actor Patrick Dempsey will make his LM debut in the Team Seattle F430. Should all of these cars fail, rest assure that the Snoras Spyker will be up there, aswell as the Drayson Aston Martin V8 Vantage so long as they can keep their reliability problems at bay. Driving the Aston Martin will be Jonny Cocker and Paul Drayson, both making their LM24 debut, and ALMS LMP2 driver Marino Franchitti. So let's use this thread to discuss all the news leading up to what promises to be the best Le Mans since the late '90s (in terms of manufacturer input). Phew that took a while to write.
