Kinda' wish Ford would bring out the GT for that. Talk about reliving history.

Of course, they probably don't want to loose to the Corvettes, but still, it would be great to see.

I'd love to see the Astons win in GT-1, though an upset by the Acemco Saleen would be really cool. Also rooting for the Intersport car in P2. In P1, you might as well just give Audi the trophy now. In GT2, anything that's not a Porsche would be cool with me.

I would love to see the AM's do well. It is going to be difficult to beat the Vete boys though.

I haven't performed my research but are the ORECA Saleens not ready for Le Mans? I seem to recall that they are not. I may perform said resarch before the race in the morning.

Well it's 5:52am . . . I've got a few hours before the race starts to check.

And I just checked/confirmed that in agreement with Mr. Saleen the ORECA Saleens will not be running in Le Mans. Glad to see I still have somewhat of a good memory since that was determined back in March!

I'm trying to watch it some here at work this morning. God those AM's are beautiful, i'd love to see them get a win. Would be a good thing for the AM company and Ford as well.

What Audi diesels are you talking abotu Doug? The R10's?
