What do you think about this Alfa Romeo SE 048 SP? The Italian prototype powered by a V10 was one of the best kept secrets and never made it to La Sarthe, the project got cancelled after some testing in the 90s.
Should an Italian manufacturer get involved in LMP1 to try to battle with Audi or Toyota?
I sure think so…
I have received news that the POSTEROUS web hosting site is closing down on April 30th and I have a Le Mans page there which I started 3 years ago when I was in China and could not access WordPress from there. I need to find a way to transfer all the entries I have there to here.
Also I have a Le Mans page on Facebook. How I can link this all is still a mystery to me but I shall work on it.
In preparation for the 2014 LMP1 return we hear,,,
Porsche has finally revealed its most awaited racer car, the 2013 Porsche 911 RSR. The car has been specifically designed for races such as Le Mans and it is surely going to give a tough competition to other established cars and brands.
Unfortunately I cannot access this blog from China (thank you guys in Bejing). So I can only update in my main blog for the time being.
As Stephane Sarrazin was saying at the scrutineering, « Going faster is always possible! ». He was actually right: Driving his Peugeot 908 Hdi the French pilot broke the lap record with 3’18.513″, half an hour before the end of the first part of today qualifying session. The Audis are now around 6 seconds behind the three Peugeot #8, #7 and #9!
I wonder if I shall make it there….
No specific news at the moment except I have received the ACO box a few days ago. Apart from the official programs and a few poster and a magnificent book on Le Mans, it also contained the official video of this year’s race. I assume I can make copies…
Finally managed to upload all the pics of the 2007 edition. They can be found here on my sister site. Of course the original pictures are of a better quality and all available on CD thanks to Acki.
