Belgian Audi Club Team WRT team boss is thrilled by this program: "The Audi R18 e-tron quattro may look like a big fish, but it is an amazing piece of engineering. We're proud of this program".
Reference to a fish pretty clearly a nod to "Poisson d'Avril", the French way of referring to an April Fool.

Any other sportscar April Fools?

Interesting. Am I correct in assuming that the activities are for 2015?

Not such a bad idea to make it resemble a sort of mini Le Mans in an attempt to broaden the races appeal.

The rumor mill was buzzing in that you had become a Porsche convert.

That's definitely April 1. No truth to that

I am gunning for Porsche to win in P1 mainly because of Webber but if there were Ferrari in P1 then the status quo would resume

Come on Rich, we all know that you're a closet Porsche man. Webber was one of, if not my favorite driver in F1 and now he pilots a Porsche.

You do know that he loves the marque right? I wonder why?

Did you ever get the book of the car maker whom we shall not speak of?

I've always had an affinity for Porsches prototypes, no apologies for that. Still looking for volumes 1 and 2 of the GT1 series. Wish I had the money ha

I really like the narrower front tire rule change. When i compare last years to this years Audi's it makes a world of difference.

You think so? Imo, the relative sizes are near the same. I think it may be the shape of the front that looks different to me. The black near the fender holes help too.
