I'm starting to get nervous about that building.
But ACO has shown to respect the track when building these changes, so it won't impact the fan experience.

Might be a bit controversial this, but I actually think it looks quite impressive. If they have the lights switched on, that part of the track is going to look awesome with the Ferris Wheel and bungee death-trap thing at night.

It would also seem that the terracing on the pit-straight has been given some TLC.

Great spot on the terracing!
It looks like solid tiles/concrete all the way now.

That will be a big improvement, they have been doing that for a few years now but if they have completed the whole stretch now it will make it much easier to walk along that stretch when it is busy as the old sand and broken concrete was very uneven

Glad to see this finally confirmed. A modern classic! Can't wait to see it pounding round during race week.

Meet too!, the missing achievements of that car doesn't match the beauty and sound of that car.

Not necessary for Le Mans, because we know it is always sunny at Le Mans, but this might come in handy at Silverstone or Spa-Francorschamps:

Awesome, LMP1 and GT1 make it totally worth it. According to GG it's expected 50-60 car grid too which is huge upgrade over 2012 if it materializes. Now only if someone covered that race for those not there

Eglible models

P1: Lola-AMR
GT1: DBR9
GT2: Vantage GT2/GTE
GT3: DBRS9, Vantage GT3
GT4: Vantage GT4, Vantage N24
INV: V12 Zagato, V12 Vantage VLN

No AMR-One?

Meanwhile, watching the LMP2 grid is now kinda depressing with the looming possible prospect Dagys has shown us.

Last year was wall-to-wall sunshine for a week, all except half an hour in the race...... Same again this year please - omitting that half hour, of course!

OH, having missed last time round, has put in an official request that it's warm this year.

Last year the weather was perfect could not wish for better even the little r... made the race more enjoyable. Lets hope it is like that again, I'm sure it will
Hot like 2005 is in my opinion a little bit to much good weather.

I must admit, that a little rain when the race is on is good, especially if it is in the final part. It just gives the race the last little spice to make it more excellent

Now I am going to run up some Icelandic mountain and hide
