I would love to work in automotive journalism. I do it as a hobby more than anything though, simply because I enjoy it. If someone would be kind enough to pay me to blabber on about cars then that would be awesome, but it's not something I'm actively pursuing.

I'd really like to see Peugeot win it this time. I mean, I wouldn't be sad if Audi won - but I'm sure many will agree that it's time for a change

The battles are going to be good this year. If it rains, we might get some petrol powered cars in with the diesels...

LMP2 should be interesting, with the Barazi Zytek's very fast, but so far unreliable in the LMS, so we'll see what happens. Any issue, and one of the Lola's will probably take up the lead.

GT1 will definitely be the class to watch. Aston Martin, Corvette, and Saleen all have an equal chance of a victory.

GT2 will probably be a Porsche-Ferrari battle, with maybe one of the Spyker's get in the mix (hell, both of the Spyker's lead GT2 for a while last year...)

Not this year. Lamy has got to win.

that is a very interesting point you bring up..... what if it rains? the over torqued diesels will be a handfull i can imagine... something to look forward to perhaps?

It is raining horrifically in parts of the circuit. The weather for the race includes rain as well.

If it doesn't dry up for later tonight, Peugeot has the pole.

Great work Wouter! Nice shot of the Oreca Saleen there. Must have been nice, dark, cold and wet. Race day may be much of the same!

Why so low resolution? That's an amazing picture.

I don't think it is that impossible. I would lean towards Audi too, but if the Peugeots don't break, then it may well be their win.

It looks like those who suspected that the massive torque of the diesel engines would hamper them in the rain, were quite wrong. During last night's wet practice they were still miles ahead of the first petrol car. The Fernandez Zytek was mixing nicely up with the big boys too.
