After the Magny-Cours test held on Tuesday 29th May with the three drivers (Felipe Ortiz, Shinji Nakano and Jamie Campbell Walter) Team Creation arrived in Le Mans on Wednesday to set up its pit garage (the last of the brand new ones built by the ACO in order to welcome a 55 car grid from this year onwards, instead of 50) and get the car ready for yesterday's scrutineering.

This year's Le Mans edition (the 75th since it was created) has a particular flavour for the Bicester based team. In fact it will be the third time that Creation will take the start of the world most prestigious endurance race in its four year history and this time with the first Creation ever (CA07/01).

A good reason for asking Jamie Campbell Walter his first feelings about the car: "The car is definitely quick by nature and we could immediately feel the positive impact from the 5,5 version of the Judd V10, the wider tyres and a longer wheel base" commented a delighted Jamie who has not driven for almost 8 months. "It is also very important that Felipe, Shinji and I all feel very comfortable with the car. Furthermore we did not have any problems or reliability issues during the 2,500km that we covered since last week. I can't wait for the test to start" added the flying Scott.

Test day (3rd June) schedule: From 9am to 1pm and from 2pm to 6pm.
