    When is it in 2006? Really wanted to go for the last few years, might need to organise something with a few mates...

    How much does it cost for entry?

    if you are considered worthy by the auto club l'ouest

    usually by winning a championship, the entries above are tagged with the reason

    everybody else has to ask and prove themselves !!

    Just under ten seconds, just call it nine point five in round figures! : Murray Walker.

    We drove down, took 5 hours but should be quicker this year as the motorway should go sraight down from Calais to Lemans rather than goin through Rouen. We were camped near the porsche curves, bout 2 miles to the main entrance but they laid on a coach service over the sat and sun. Wat was good was after the race they opened the roads again so we could go round the track that the cars were just going round at 200mph just a couple of hours before. Want to go this year but think uni will clash.

    Some more pics.

    I looks liek they are only takign the WINNER of the Petit Le Mans.
    So for whatever reason ACO has chosen they've decided theat the competition in the event doesnt' justify a second place being pre-qualified.

    Heres my pick for all 4 races:

    LM P1: Champion Racing Audi R8
    LM p2: the Paul Belmondo Racing Courage C65
    GT1: Corvett Racing C6-R
    GT2: the Alex Jod Racing Porsche 911 GT3 RSR
    Fords suck, Chevys rule, but its Ferrari that makes me drool
