    24 Hours of Le Mans Test

    All the teams arrived today at the Le Mans for Sunday's official test. It gives rookies the chance to drive the mandatory ten laps to qualify for the race and the rest of teams and drivers to set up the car for the 8 mile track, most of which is public road. The biggest talk in the paddock is of course the arrival of Audi; an arrival in force with biggest paddock and hospitality units I have ever seen. A sad note is the withdrawal of the Icer Brakes Ferrari, because the team's F430 GTC could not be repaired in time after the horendous opening lap crash at Spa three weeks ago. It's replaced by a Porsche. Another withdrawal is Jean Christophe Bouillon with a broken wrist. Pescarolo will announce a replacement after the test day.

    If you should see a man walking down a crowded street talking aloud to himself, don't run in the opposite direction, but run towards him, because he's a poet. You have nothing to fear from the poet - but the truth.

    Now that actually stands a chance....though in the rest of the ALMS(if they chose to do it), they will still be using Pirelli...

    I'm dropping out to create a company that starts with motorcycles, then cars, and forty years later signs a legendary Brazilian driver who has a public and expensive feud with his French teammate.
