Le Mans Series Official Thread

This season Ultimatecarpage.com will attend all races of the Le Mans Series (LMS). With a month to go before the race the entry list is already packed with a competitive and diverse field so it should be great fun for us to shoot and report on and for you to follow! Reports of all races will of course be posted on the main page, but news between the races can be posted in this sticky thread.

Like the ALMS, the LMS (previously known as the Le Mans Endurance Series or LMES) is an officially Automobile Club de l'Ouest (ACO) sanctioned championship. This means the cars entered will have to comply with the same rules as the annual 24 Hours of Le Mans race. Many of the cars entered in the championship will also compete in the 24 hours in June. The season is kicked off with two official test days on the high speed Paul Ricard track in Le Castellet, France at the end of the month. The championships consists of five races held over 1000 km with a maximum of six hours.

Pescarolo Sport is still deciding on whether to continue with the C60 Hb or get the new LC70

I'm pretty sure they will use the old C60 with a new engine and gearbox. The new engine has lighter heads, but the weight saved is sadly compensated by the ACO's increase in minimum weight with 25 kg to allow for air conditioning systems.

Looks like I won't be going to Nurburgring afterall....the region is kinda remote from other German town and people wants places that has attraction other than cars.... If we go somewhere then go to the Ring it might cost too much for car rental, plane/train fee and what not...

The new team, PSI Experience has acquired a Corvette C5R and a Corvette C6R.
Luc Alphand got a Corvette C5R and a might have a C6R in the future.
