    My choices for the race:

    GT1: # 7 Saleen S7R of Larbre Competition (2001-02 winners with a Viper GTS-R) with Michelin tires. Drivers Pedro Lamy, Vincent Vosse, Greg Franchi, and Steve Zacchia.

    LARBRE COMPETITION

    G2 class is for non-homologated GT1/GT2 cars while G3 is for GT3 cars from the FIA GT3 Championship.

    G2: # 102 Porsche 996 GT2-R of McDonald's Racing with Michelin tires. Drivers Wolfgang Kaufmann, Aliaksandr Talkanitsa, Philippe Ullman, and Kenneth Heyer.

    G3: # 112 Ferrari F430 GT3 of AS Events with Pirelli tires. Drivers Christopher Campbell, François Jakubowski, Mathieu Zangarelli, and Ange Barde.

    Coupe du Roi is a relay race. A team has three cars and each car runs 8 hours. JMB Racing is the only team in it this year with Ferraris.
    Should Comcast, which is buying NBC, have more motorsports coverage on VERSUS and now NBC? Does North America need a racing tv channel? Find the answer to that exact question on facebook.

    My main interest is in GT2 class, hoping that AF Corse Ferrari of Vilander/Bruni/Melo/Salo will have great race. I just hope Melo doesn't crash the car, he have destroyed two cars in ALMS this season. Other car i'll be keeping my eye on is Prospeed Porsche of Forsten/Palttala/Henzler/Horion.

    Zacchia destroyed the Saleen that was on pole in the dying seconds of the warm-up.
    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.

    It was quite bad, they did not start the race.

    I wasn't sure of Steve Zacchia from the # 33 Speedy Racing – Team Sebah Lola B08/80 Judd. Larbre put in such a great effort.

    I've changed my GT1 pick to the # 6 Chevrolet Corvette C6.R of Phoenix Carsport with drivers Mike Hezemans, Marcel Fässler, Jean-Denis Deletraz, Fabrizio Gollin and Michelin tires. The same drivers and car won last year's endurance race.
