His 'day job' in Japan would prevent him from driving at Silverstone much as it does Treluyer and Lotterer for Audi. I agree, he was the business at Le Mans, and I'm sure Peugeot agrees as well.

Whilst I agree that the turn out is often dissapointing, hopefully the organisers will be a little better prepared than the last big race in 2008, the queues to get into the circuit were a bit silly.

What I liked about 2008 I spoke to so many people who had never turned or seen sportscar's before, and explained they enjoyed it so much, especially being able to walk around for the duration. Only thing I would say Silverstone Could do with is maybe some sort of fun fair or something over the weekend to compliment the race. I also enjoyed the Audi and Peugeot stands with the various cars. (think there was the Bentley speed8, Audi R8, Audi R8C. Overall Im looking forward to the weekend.

Oliver Quesnel in a Peugeot Press Release...
"What evolutions will the 908 HDi FAP run for these three races?
"We won’t have any real evolutions; they are more adaptations. We will run the same high-downforce aerodynamic package we used at Spa and Sebring, and we have reverted to steel con-rods for the engine."

My highlighting...

Thursday is Admin/signon/scrutineering. All can be done indoors, so rain is no worry.

Was no problem last year, getting in or out, then again there were no free tickets thrown about like confetti!

McNish said in his site's blog that he planned on driving around the track on Thursday--he didn't make it clear if it was a promoters' test session (like in the ALMS) or just drive a rental car around the track. It seems that he now meant the latter.

Vuelta a España on Eurosport 2 so basically Silverstone is 3rd in line, nowhere to go.
Eurosport boys said they would get up to 4 hours of coverage @ Hungary, or maybe I was hearing things!

Yes, for non-UK viewers!

Gulf's GT2 Lamborghini is a nice addition to the grid. Are they planning to take that machine amnywhere else this year?

Probably too early to ask, but which cars (serial number) will Audi and Peugeot be likely to run at Silverstone? The #9 for Audi (LM winner) and the #3 for Peugeot (LM winner in '09 and tub damage at LM '10) are unlikely to be used. Also, do Audi and Peugeot have spare tubs incase something happens?
