Didn't see that one coming....

I might be bothered to turn up at Mosport to see that...
Will be cool to see/hear this jewel run even if LMP1 is a bit limp overall.

2001-2007, I went there uninterrupted during those years....the first few with my dad and the last 2 or 3 with people from the SAE team, and those are the years that we started walking the track during the race. Basically catch the start in turn one, snap few pics, then went down to turn 2 to see the brave man in the LMPs flying through there flat on a blind, down hill, off camber turn...go to turn 3 snap a few pics of cars apexing with curb. Then walk to 5a and 5b and see the car at the slowest point of the track. Then walk down the back straight through the woods and hear them echo through it...Stay a bit at turn 8 and see the LMPs just lift off the gas and turn in at 180mph....then usually wrap up up on the little hill at turn 9 as we usually park around there. Then try to beat the traffic out the track....

autosport.com - Le Mans News: HPD steps up to LMP1 for Le Mans

HPD is going LMP1 again.....but with the ARX-01-based car, not the purpose built ARX-02a...

ARX-01d will be their 2011 spec LMP2 car, with the new turbo charged V6.

ARX-01e will be their 2011 spec LMP1 car, presumably with a development of the 3.4 liter V8, since thats what the 2011 rule calls for, basically the 2010 and prior's P2 motor...

Curious to see the updates, and if we'll see the wider front tires again, but on the ARX-01 platform....

Edit: MulsannesCorner's bits on it: Mulsanne's Corner News, January/February 2011

Coupe for 2012.

Read the news....Their car pages won't update until there are actually new cars to see....and he is still updating all the old cars as more information are on them already...

Also considering he has a day job, I think the site is still pretty good...

Insightful.

Doesn't work for me, sadly... It doesn't open at all, just like if the site didn't exist. Very pity, as I enjoyed those pages very much

Audi have rented Sebring for next week and will test a R18 and a R15 there all next week, and will test the R18 at the Homestead NASCAR oval afterwards.

One of my buddies has been chatting with a Risi team member who said they won't be participating in the LM 24 this year...and also they only have one 458 at Sebring testing.... yet newcomer team, Extreme Speed, has two!

He played this news off as nothing.... and that they are tired of screwing up in their regular season championship but manage to win LM most of the time..... but to me it sounds like financial and/or some other issues have arose at Risi.

Issues with Shell sponsorship? Audi no longer carries much Shell sponsorship with the V-Power diesel stuff. It seems that Shell wants to sponsor Penske's NASCAR and Indy Car teams.
