Subaru_WRX_STi has a lot of promise if they can keep it on the circuit!
LAA with a single Corvette for sure at Silverstone ! just 3 GT1s !!! just like the ALMS, shame

anyway its horrible to see a foolish clash with FIA GT, Bruni and Collard will miss Silverstone, the Italian is missing the LMS GT2 crown

Sorry to be picky but there are four GT1's entered, and frankly the class only comes alive for me when P&M and Prodrive go head to head at Le Mans, plenty of other fantastic cars to enjoy in that entry.

So who's going off here? Would be nice to have a 10-10ths meet if there's enough of us.

More Aston's than Corvette's And then the Lambo

I might be going, not 100% sure yet though.

haha, i can remember my hungover comment about the current 5.5 engine sounding like a washing machine compared to the old 4.0 V10 which had an astonishing soundtrack, but the current judd V10 does make a great noise though, specially in the pescarolo's.

its just the current 5.5 V10 sounds a lot meatier and ear piercing unsilenced, witness petit lemans last year with the creation CA07 which made a glorious V10 bellow accelarating down spectator hill

Alternatively - and sorry to be a killjoy - Don't go into the car prep area of any occupied garage without asking permission - There are always hot and fragile items around (having seen the costly results of one uninvited guest stepping on an intricate piece of carbon fibre aero I'm guessing its the last time that individual will wander in uninvited) - The guys are often very busy too. Most of the teams appreciate interest but that should always be balanced with courtesy for their working space.

Not very! But the garages are crowded, people are rushing about - In all seriousness its not the place to be if you don't know where to stand

Fully agree...I think it is very simple, just picture a bunch of curious people standing around your own desk/workplace the moment you need to make that phone call or finish that report....

After Monza, Spa and Nürburgring i'm going to set my personal record to 4 races in one season. I'll have to try to get to Barcelona as well next year.

We were at Barcelona this year - it was great. I do have one concern that being if rumors become fact, and Barcelona becomes a test (aka Paul Ricard) will spectators not be permitted (like Paul Ricard) - such a shame if it were to be that way. We will have attended three LMS this year - Barcelona, Monza and Silverstone. Spa (our favorite track - went for the FIA-GT race again this year) conflicted with the Monaco Historics (fantastic racing and some really neat cars). The unfortunate part of this whole thing is that the exchange rate is absolutely horrible for us! Everyone on the other side of the pond from us needs to come to some of our ALMS races!!

I did last year - went to Laguna Seca and had a ball. But the exchange rate is now going back in your favour again, so maybe your chances of coming over here might increase.

Will be at Silverstone doing pitlane duties, so maybe see you all there.
