Carlos Sainz' chances of racing for Toyota in the Le Mans 24 Hours race have gone away, after the new rally callendar just published means a clash of events for the Spaniard. The Acropolis Rally ends on the day of Le Mans qualifying.
BMW to Sebring 12 Hours?
Don Panoz has suggested that BMW may well be present at the Sebring 12 hours. A BMW spokesman has neither confirmed or denied the story.
