Although it had the Chamberlain banner, the #39 yellow LMP2 Lola in 2006 was effectively Amaral's ASM team. The "real" Chamberlain team did LMP1 with their yellow #19 Lola and their pace was as this year.

Yes I've remembered now...so ASM really won at Spa 06 in LMP2 (and was named Chamberlain Synergy in the entry list), and Chamberlain only raced in LMP1.

Anyone know what kind of relation had ASM and Chamberlain?

Chamberlain won P2 LMS championship in 2005 so they had an entry in P2 for Le Mans. Maybe that was the main reason, because after Le Mans the Iberian teams name changed to ASM.

Both LNT cars had engine problems, fuel pick-up and fuel pressure issues.

Its a strange one certainly. The car was the one that Rollcentre ran last year and although it suffered a few teething problems, by the end of the year it was proving very reliable. Martin Short has also been helping the team out with the information that he gleaned during its development with his team. Why it's suddenly become unreliable is, at the moment, anyones guess.

I asked their team manager before this season but the answer was vague to say the least. Looks like they used Chamberlain's experience to ramp up their team effort in the beginning

But the team is actually pretty good and extremely professional. In a later interview with Angel Burgueño (you can find it there as well) he was very clear about it. Looks like Angel will not be at Le Mans with them though which still puzzles me...

Team's buy and sell entries to LeMans, as long as the car is the same as on the entry and the team name is right theyre not too bothered. Thus teams can have an eligible car, buy an entry from a team that maybe has earned 2 ( win Atlanta or Alms or class win at 24Hr etc) and "adopt" their name. Ive done LeMans a few times and the name on the car was just the entry, the team behind was brought in just for the race. Though I believe there have been cases where the ACO have stepped in and said "No" to certain teams..
