Hello LE MANS fans,

Since last year, the organization in LE MANS allowed a preliminary practice day. It was last sunday (8 may). I have not complete time results as some improvements have been made during the last hour, so in the list below times are those at 5pm (end session was 6pm), a few cars won't have their best time given (*), but their place is right!

All cars are mixed and not given by category (prototype : LMP1/C90 (1) and LMP2 (2); grand tourisme : LM_GT1 (3), LM_GT2 (4))

OUF! what a job for me as I type with 2 fingers! as you can see the vette just mamaged to complete 1 or 2 laps! The Viper's colour made me sick (a terrible orange fluo!)

2 cars did not complete a lap : an ALPINE A 610 was not finished (a problem of ?motor wheel? "between motor and gear box! they discovered the problem in the pit when final assembling!) an ALD (old one) don't know if it was a mechanical problem or a technical one (with the "commissaires" of the ACO) ?

Next rendez-vous will be in june (18 and 19). I don't know if i will be able to do any report during the training sessions as i may work in a team as "chrono" and will not go to work for a week!!!

Cheers.

Charles.
