ALMS: Potential Petit Le mans Entry List

Discussion in 'Motorsports' started by rabbitl1, Aug 8, 2008.

  1. What happened to the Team Cytosport Lola B06-10/AER? Weren't they supposed to rejoin the ALMS after Le Mans?
     
  2. I can tell you the car isn't at the Riley shop.
     
  3. That's what they had announced... But then also announced that they never bought the ex-Charouz Lola. So they won't be doing anything in 08. They could potentially return in 09, but I'm not getting my hopes up.
     
  4. Have the Camaros arrived yet?
     
  5. x
     
  6. Have there been any other GT2 C6 builds? I'd heard there were other teams interested in both American and Europe.
     
  7. Lots of interest from both continents, no sales that I am aware of. There is a second car being worked on from time to time though.
     
  8. How about a factory car with Matthews and Goossens driving???
     
  9. That would be cool, but I've heard nothing about it.
     
  10. Looks like we can cross Embassy off the list of maybes...
     
  11. Here's an updated list with drivers

    EDIT: It's now being said that Cytosport WILL be on the grid at PLM, but with what, who knows... Also rumored are the Barazi Epsilon Zytek, Essex Porsche RS Spyder, and the Team Sebah Lola Judd might make the trip from Europe as well. That could make 5 LMP coupes for the big race!

  12. IRL star Scott Dixon will join Simon Pagenaud and Gil de Ferran in the LMP2 de Ferran Motorsports Acura for Petit.
     
  13. Yea, its looking like we can definitely cross off the Horag Porsche and the Embassy WF01.
     
  14. Wow, now here's an interesting one. It's looking as if 5 time Le Mans winner and Audi legend Frank Biela will team with Gunnar Jeanette and Johnny Mowlem in the upcoming LMP1 Corsa Zytek!

    Frank's not a spring chicken anymore, but he's still a very good driver and he'll be a HUGE addition to that team!

    Also looks as if Aston Martin is debating whether to bring over the GT1, LMP1, or nothing at all.

    Also expected to return after absences are the LG GT2 Corvette, VDS LMP2 Radical, LMP1 Eco Radical making its debut, and the return of Krohn Green on the 2nd Risi Ferrari
     
  15. Do you know why Binnie Motorsports would be interested in Petit (other than a possible Le Mans entry for 2009)?

    Does Bill Binnie even plan to return to Le Mans?
     
  16. Gunman you work at Riley?
     
  17. yes.
     
  18. Who knows. They took the year off from racing because Binnie's daughter was terribly ill, but I suppose perhaps she's recovered.

    Binnie had his car out at a private test at Lime Rock a few weeks ago and it was hinted that they may run the final 2 races of the ALMS.

    Who knows about 2009, but perhaps Bill just wants to get out in the car and run it a couple times after having a hard year off the race track.
     
  19. What do you do there if you dont mind me asking?
     
  20. Design engineer/CAD jockey
     
  21. Autocon Motorsports will be fielding an LMP1 Lola B06/10 AER from Petit Le Mans on. It will be the chassis previously owned by Hugh Chamberlain of Chamberlain-Synergy Motorsport.

    So this means no more Creation, and no chance of the Mansells coming to play.

    Intersport is also likely purchasing the ex-Charouz LMP1 Lola B07/17 Judd to replace the B06/10 they destroyed at Mosport and should have it in time for PLM.

  23. I wish we'd get more news about the "possible" Saleen entry, the Van der Stuer Radical, and the Lola B08-60/Aston Martin!!!
     
  24. I haven't heard anything on the Saleen front in some time. Marshall Pruett, Speed TV.com's ALMS guy thinks VDS will be at PLM, and last I heard, Aston Martin Racing was deciding whether to bring the LMP1 car, the GT1 car, or not come at all.

    The official entry list should be coming out in the next week or 2.
     
  25. Darren Turner will be the 3rd driver for the Drayson-Barwell GT2 Aston Martin.

    This also kinda leads me to think that if Aston Martin does come over, it'll be with the LMP1. 2/3 of its lead driver pairing already have PLM rides, so bringing the Charouz Lola Aston would make more sense.
