    That's a Jim Bamber cartoon, probably taken from Autosport.

    Amazing photos right there. I like the third one with the Porsche and the sunset lighting up the area.

    If anything happened to one of the Audi, we could have seen the Rebellion up there. I'm pretty sure next year will be the year where the Toyota team will be much more prepared and I think giving more challenge to the Audis...

    Am I the only one cross with the #51 for winning? I mean... they participated because the organizers bent the rules. They shouldn't have been allowed to run.

    Really enjoyed my stay again at this year Le Mans 24 hours. Even though the race wasn't that exciting there was still enough to see around the weekend. It was my first time camping there (last year was only a weekend trip by touringcar). Not much sleep with all the music, fireworks among other things, but it was fun!
    Did any of you find a good video summary of the race though? Still want to see a one as I wasn't always close to a big screen there to see what happened on track. I did however shoot load of photo's, so for those interested you can find them here.
    I'm hoping that Toyota will stay on for next year and maybe some other big names (Honda, Nissan?) to join the top class there as well.

    No, they still had to finish 24 hours and beat the competition. Having more cars participate is better than taking cars out before the race has even started.

    And I like seeing Fisichella getting some success again. Spa 2009 will never be forgotten! :tup:

    porshe curves at 109-122 mph was what got me. and yeah, when it comes out of indianpolis the surge from 60mph - 160mph takes like 10 seconds :O
