The striking Panoz LMP-1 Roadster S and all-new Ligier ...

One of the great driving forces in sports car racing over the last few decades has been Don Panoz, who sadly passed away a couple of weeks ago. He ran the Panoz company, organised the Petit Le Mans race and was also one of the founders of the American Le Mans Series (ALMS). The Panoz racing cars were rarely conventional and that was certainly the case for the LMP-1 Roadster S that was raced between 1999 and 2003 with considerable success. While all other Le Mans Prototypes of the day were mid-engined, the Panoz featured a distinct front-engined layout. The V8-engined machines were nevertheless front runners for many seasons and the featured example won the Petit Le Mans in 1999. At this weekend's, 20th anniversary edition of the Petit Le Mans, the late Don Panoz will rightly be honoured.
Last night, Ligier revealed the all-new JS2 R, which is a tribute to the fabulous JS2 that raced at Le Mans in 1975 and also serves as a 50th anniversary celebration of the marque. Aimed at track use only, it is powered by a 330bhp Ford V6 yet weighs only 980kg. The first JS2 Rs should be delivered to customers early in 2019.

Le Mans 1999 I was in the pit next to the Panoz, which was considered quite radical. the decal given to me by one of the pit crew I still have. " sounds like thunder, goes like lightning".
