    I always thought the Porsche GT1 Evo 98 was an interesting competitor. It was a funny looking (actually, I quite like the way it looks) car and won against the much faster competition... thanks to its reliability.

    They still had the big corporation's money, though.
    Lack of charisma can be fatal.

    I meant it in the context of the Italian spend at the time
    Team size was the bigger restriction back then, no computers and regular wind tunnels consuming $Ms back then

    Legendary Rivals

    In a similar vane, her is a blog I worked on about the legendary formula one rivals - it's a top ten list.

    I'm a newbie so if it's not quite right for the forum then just ignore this post, as I don't want to intrude on your community or irritate regular members.

    and success outside of La Sarthe I didn't even think was up for consideration as it's a Club L'Ouest anniversary and award
    and yes it's a bit of fun ... and there's no more fun than winding up a fan
    Actually it took a small group in California to make 'Ford' a success at first and the a very small privateer team in the UK to make the small block GT40 a success.
    And to be frank, I stopped enjoying LM around Y2K.
    Detest the current cars.

    Nice use of the term Y2K. What caused your indifference?

    Best British cars at Le Mans

    Article I saw on Reddit, misses out some notable winners, but a decent recap of British teams/cars/winners.
