Le Mans 24H Poster

The 89th running of the 24 Hours of Le Mans on 21 and 22 August this year celebrates rejuvenation, with the introduction of a Hypercar class.
 
Quite rightly, the high-performance, stylish machines in the new category take centre stage on the 2021 race poster.
 
Devised to depict speed and to evoke the distinctive day/night aspect of the world-famous race, the understated 2021 poster design leaves the limelight to the spectacular cars.

Corvette news

Great news

Corvette Racing has announced it will compete at the upcoming TOTAL 6 Hours of Spa-Francorchamps (29 April – 1 May) with its Corvette C8.R.

Fresh from their victory at the Rolex 24 At Daytona in the IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship, Corvette Racing will enter a single C8.R at the WEC season-opener.

Antonio Garcia (Spain) and Oliver Gavin (UK) are set to drive the No. 63 C8.R – the first time they have shared a car in their Corvette Racing careers.

As a reminder, these are the 2 cars entered for the Le Mans 24h in August.

WEC – 6 Hours Austin – Round 5

I was on holiday in Morocco but had, for a change, brought my laptop with me and was therefore able to watch most of the race on it courtesy of fiawec.com. A very good race with loads of action in the GT class.

I have as usual noted the results in my WEC 2019/2020 Excel file which can be found in JJ’s Cloud.

I know that Austin was a last minute decision to replace Sao Paulo which had to be cancelled at the last minute but it was very sad to see almost empty grand stands. Why bring races to countries where people are not interested. That is a question for the FIA.

The new category of cars which will replace the current LMP1 is now officially known as the Le Mans Hypercar.

Still only 2 manufacturers are to enter cars for next year’s season and namely Aston Martin and Toyota. They will be followed by Peugeot the following year as recently announced.
