2008 24 Hours of Le Mans Entry List

The ACO have just published the list of 55 accepted entries and 8 reserve entries. Interesting to note is the Vitaphone Aston Martin, Tafel Ferrari and the absolutely massive LMP1 field.

Do I have a deja-vu, or you have already posted it?

It was published less than an hour ago. The only other list we have is the Le Mans Series entry list.

It is also interesting to note that WR have not received an entry.

It reflects the raised level of endurance racing. The ACO can no longer justify offering teams like WR an automatic entry.

I've always admired the WR team if they were British they'd definately be called the 'Plucky Brits.' I went to Le Sarthe way back in 2000 and 2001 in a Marcos Mantara LM400 Spyder and I loved every minute of it. Will definately be going back very soon.

Peugeot has officially announced it's drivers for Le Mans.

Marc Gene, Christian Klien, Pedro Lamy, Franck Montagny, Nicolas Minassian, Stephane Sarrazin, Jacques Villeneuve, Alex Wurz, and Ricardo Zonta.

That is a crapload of F1 talent. Too bad no Sebastien...

All those pilots have experience at Le Mans and/or in Formula 1. Peugeot went the experience way. Can't wait to see those three 908's against those three R10's!

Not to mention only two RS Spyders after they made such a big deal the RS Spyder was going to be there. LeMans used to be Porsche's race, but it almost seems as if they don't care anymore.
