    Two cars.
    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.

    These are the automatic entries based on the 2006 results. I'm sure Spyker will get one or two entries again for the variety.

    They were actually in third place when they retired. Jan Lammers should also get an invitation; his new Dome looks very quick.

    Well, I guess they all should get an invitation then, they all look quick IMO...

    But serious: is there any reason why they shouldn't have sent him an invitation? I mean based on the results he should get one.

    No the automatic invitations are based on results in several races and championships. For example the class winners at Le Mans all got an invitation, the top two in the Le Mans Series all got one. Etc. Lammers did not achieve any of the required results to be eligible for an automatic invitation. After Sebring, the ACO will send out further invitations to the teams that have applied for an entry.

    Ok, that makes sense. Thanks for clearing that up. I don't really have that much knowledge about Le Mans and the related events.

    It's a pretty new system. In the past, the invitations were all completely up to the ACO.

    I agree about Aston, I want them to win. They brought an awesome fight to the Vette's this past season. The most recent Car and Driver issue had a badass article on the DBR9's.
