You're on - I guess Friday would be favourite !! And at least I now understand your Caddy favouritism

Have to say I'm quite impressed with the look of new Caddy. A somewhat different beast to the earlier incarnations !! You never know, if it's as quick as it looks then maybe you'll be on the receiving end of some champagne after all

Nice job!!

Was interested to read about JJ Lehto probably joining your team - unlikely that he's going to go to a team who he doesn't think will do well.

Also interested about Panoz's chances - how many cars? 4? More? LMP and GTP? Always liked the GT Panoz, esp. the growl!

Audi will win it, they are the only ones with a set up that no one else can touch.

Bentley, even if they are winning would probably have to give in to team orders so the Audis can win.
If they win a third they get to keep the trophy.

Panoz totally lost the plot last year, new engine new chassis, crap car,(oh and they kept losing wheels aswell) the LMP01 was far better.

MG if they get the reliability, would probably take LMP675 class and give a few of the LMP900s a run for their money aswell.

The Judd engine cars, don't tend to have the long term reliability for the race.They sound pretty evil though at idle.

Chrysler have pulled their Factory team altogether I believe.

LMGTS will go to the Corvettes again if they are there.

Can't wait, hope the weather is better this year though.

I think MG have got a good chance...Why?
There car was 4th fastest 2001.....after not beeing tested.....well just a bit.
Lola said "It is VERY fast" when we when to the Lola with MGOC.....
So if it can keep going this year I would see a top 3 or 4 place over all

i would have to agree if only for one thing the mg has ben quick in testing at the beging of this year due to running with out restrictors.

if the engines hold they will get some of the lmp900 on fuel economy if they pit well and have a good engineer to show them the way
