Bruno Senna takes his first steps in Endurance in Le Mans Series

Motor racing is a family business. Ayrton Senna's nephew, Bruno, took his first steps in a Prototype today, on the Castellet racetrack.

What for a surprise when he arrived this morning in the paddock, for the Le Mans Series official test session, to test the team Oreca's LMP1.

After a long testing session this morning, the Sao Paulo native claimed:

"I really enjoyed to drive the LMP1. The driving style is really different that what I did before; it's a really good experience. The prototype is heavier than a single-seater car. You have to fit your way to run consequently and to be more conservative with the tyres. I also discovered the traffic management, which is not always easy!"

Paul Ricard HTTT: Sorry, we are sold out!

The expected Le Mans Series Test Day public success was not denied. Deprived for ten years of the possibility to watch what was on at the Paul Ricard HTTT, the spectators have massively inaugurated the brand new grandstands!

We reckon that the show was worth seeing: 28 cars from the future 2009 Le Mans Series world! Including the first public appearance of this year's star: the LMP1 Lola Aston Martin...

For those of you who would intend to come and buy a ticket on the spot, please forget it. You won't be able to penetrate into the circuit. We apologise for the inconvenience.
