Has to be a battle of the oil-burners at the front. I can't wait to see how the upgraded R15 faces up to a "privately"-entered Pug... (although we can probably be sure the Oreca-run Pug is going to be just as quick as the factory cars would have been had they run here).

Shame to lose the Kolles R10s, they could have been a wildcard, also it will be interesting to see the battle of the Lolas and how the Mansells do.


Also, GT2 is going to be hectic from the drop of the green up to the checkered flag.

We shall see, the Drayson Lola/Judd was pleasantly suprising, in pace, at Sebring. Early days!!

Yup, but they're using configuration 1A-V2, which means the full Mistral Straight with no chicanes, so there's a lot of room for the two diesels to stretch their legs. It will be interesting to see how sorted the R15+ is, but knowing Joest, LM last year was just a blip and the car will be extremely strong (personally I think it'll run away with it).


And also considering they've got the Dream Team in there...

I honestly think this could be one where the Rebellions could seriously feature.

I'm not sure Oreca are 100% there with their 908 yet, there's only one R15 so there's scope for a wildcard problem creeping in, and based on the pace of the Drayson Lola at Sebring, the Lola package is quite possibly one of the faster ones out there. Combine that with the strength of the Rebellion driving squad and you're left with the possibility of something really interesting cropping up.

I think it could be quite interesting. The Signature Plus Lola-Aston was consistently the quickest on the Mistral in testing, and in some of the sessions, it was quickest by a noticeable margin.

The Schnitzer BMW will be another one to follow. I think it was quickest (in overall lap time) of the GT2s, in all the sessions it managed to run.

ubrben has a lot of promise if they can keep it on the circuit!
Not sure what test you were watching, Purist - the BMW was slow at the official test. Good at Sebring, but different car.

N.B. Spotters Guide on planet Le Mans has wrong tyre supplier for Beechdean, RML, and Bruichladdich; all three will run Dunlop.

Not anymore ;-)

As for the BMW at the Paul Ricard test...that wasn't the LMS spec car.

Eurosport, but not lights to flag. Maybe they'll do a stream on Eurosport Player again, but I wouldn't count on it.

Ah, thanks for a quick reply! I've just mailed Eurosport, let's hope for a positive answer.

Personally I think Kolles will be even worse than last year. The smaller restrictor and lower boost will hit them hard.

I thought the R10 TDI was going to be using last years restrictors etc, as long as none of the drivers were ex.(current) Audi works drivers.

I've recieved an answer from Eurosport and apparently there'll be no extra flag-to-flag feed on Eurosport Player. Darn.

My mistake. I forgot about that:
Quote:
The following cars have got waivers for 2010:
LMP1 AUDI R10:
The complete car (chassis, bodywork, engine, restrictor, ballast, etc.) remains in the 2009 configuration provided:
the team who manages the car is not a factory team,
the drivers have never competed with the official team AUDI
If necessary, the ACO can adjust the performance of the car after the first race of Le Mans Series.
