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.

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 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.
