So if the team is not running in the LMS, what does this mean for the Le Mans entry? #15 has a confirmed squad, #14 doesn't... so could we be looking at a pull-out for #14 and the #15 car being run by someone else under the Kolles banner?

They will almost certainly be at Le Mans. I now return you to the Castellet race thread!
I would agree isynge, the Rebellions might be ones to watch for this round.

^ Definitely. I'd count on the #13 to be on the podium... unless one of the Astons does indeed destroy absolutely everything this side of the Mistral in terms of straight-line speed.

Sarrazin in the Oreca 908! See http://www.endurance-info.com/versio...ocus-3980.html

This could be a serious comparison between Peugeot and new Audi.

This looks to be a very intriguing battle between the Pug and the Audi. With Sarrazin coming on board, it looks like the Peugeot factory is very serious about vying for the victory, even though their factory cars are absent.

I think it is mainly a way to kick start Oreca with the 908.

looks to be a very interesting race, so far no one has mentioned LMP2 which i think will be a very interesting battle between Strakka, Quifel ASM, RML will surely be close. I also imagine OAK will be an interloper in LMP2 as well.

I agree with what a lot of people are saying though, the Rebellion Lola Judd will almost certainly feature. Sebring showed that the Lola Coupe Judd is as fast as a Pug 908 in the right hands. Lets not forget the factory Aston either, Mucke, Fernandez and Primat and that car is not to be overlooked.

Looks like quality rather than quantity in LMP1. It's not beyond any of those entrants to get a podium finish, IMO. I also think that AMR are dark horses for this race. The R15+ could hit some teething issues (G4J says while clutching hard at some straws) and the Oreca Pug didn't look as quick as one would expect in testing.

The Pescarolo name will be sadly missed .

Sorry, the BMW was slow on the overall lap, but was fast down the Mistral straight.

DJ, the Peugeots were definitely holding back at Sebring. As for ORECA at testing, they aren't the factory team, but I wouldn't be surprised if they held back as well. The Aston at Sebring ran its own pace to hopefully ensure that it finished, which it did, and right behind the Peugeots in the overall order.

Was looking at the GT2 entry list and expect quite a donnybrook. There are many more excellent GT2 driver pairings than I've ever seem in the LMS and if their cars are up to it, I would guess there are at least 8 cars and possibly even more with a reasonable chance to win. For Porsche you have almost every car being a contender, also most of the Ferraris and Bell and Turner are excellent and if the Aston has any oomph in it it should be competitive. If Spyker continue from where they were at the end of last year, they certainly have an outside shot. Then there's the BMW and, if the pace in the US is a guide, it should give everyone else a run for the money. I must say the season will really get going next week and I'm looking forward to a very interesting year of competition. Now if we could only get LAA to run a couple of GT2 Vettes!!

The Aston has no chance at Paul Ricard to quote one very experienced GT2 driver "The Aston was like a rocket out of the corners but a brick at the end" that was in response to my question about how the GT2 cars handle the Mistral.

With Audi testing at Monza sans the pre-Curva Grande chicane, and with no reason to hold back(unlike the first couple days of the Sebring test) as it was a private test with no one around(except for the guys recording the videos) and no offical timing, and with as good as the cars looked in the videos(taking Curva Grande almost flat out, if not flat and only breathing the throttle and dabbing the brakes for the Parabolica), they should be in good shape if the car is reliable, which mechanically it should be, as it seems that Audi has the cooling issue from last year(the intercoolers getting clogged with dirt due to the agressively louvered sidepods on last year's car), and has survived two 24 or 30 hours test at Sebring without issues.

Anyone think that Peugeot might test at Monza now like Audi did with the R15+ if the Oreca 908 has trouble at Paul Ricard? Or is the 908 about maxed out if the latter proves to be the case?
