Ok, F1 has the Monaco GP, the circle loving americans have the Indy 500, and then we have the other Golden motorsports event thats coming up…
Who watches Le Mans? i think its great, the cars are looking awsome this year ( the R18 looks like it will eat you if you touch it) the competition looks close aswell, so give me your thoghts on this years competition.
Who do you reckon will win it, i’m gonna say Peugeot.
Prior to the Spa 1000km race, I would have picked Audi to win Le Mans. But now I’m not so sure. The Peugeot and Audi look evenly matched. Much closer than I thought they would be. Should be a great fight at Le Mans.
As for the GT class, I’m hoping for a win from one of the 458′s. They’ve looked strong at testing and at Spa over the weekend.
The R18 looks mean, just really mean. I think tis that wrap-around windscreen or something. But they just couldnt hold the Peugeots at bay in Spa for pace, but Le Man is a lot longer running then Spa 1000k and the 908 was quicker at Le Man last year. But its all for nothing if the cars cant finish the race.
I like Le Man, I try to watch as mucn as i can (working the saturday this year though :( so missing the start). I think the cars that race there have been (historically) some of the prettiest racing cars of all time!
I’ve been following F1 and all sorts of racing events for the past 40 years in Europe and the U.S. I’ve been eight times to Le Mans, the first time in 1972, the last in 2007. It’s the greatest race in the world, period. Nothing beats it. Can’t make it this year but I will go next year. But it doesn’t come cheap. If you’re lucky enough to find a camping spot, the food is outrageously expensive (and unbelievably bad) and you’re stuck in there for 30 hours !!!
