Nothing has been officially posted yet but Oliver Gavin posted this on Facebook earlier today after Qualifying.

Also, just found this on Risi Competizione's website. It's a much better Live Timing and Scoring site.

Agreed! And thanks again. In unrelated news, what's up with that perennially slow GT1 Lamborghini run by JLOC? I've never seen them run anything but DEAD last...

They are a private team ran by Lamborghini enthusiasts. They have no real professional drivers and not a lot of funding. They won an automatic invitation for this year by winning the Asian Le Mans Series at Okayama.

It's a shame really.

I think the only completed one lap last year...I would think that I could run Holley's Aveo flat out for at least a few more laps than that.

It's official, Corvette's start 1-2 for GT2.

Gianmaria Bruni retained the honor of setting the fastest GT2 lap time. However, a subsequent official ACO scrutineering check after Midnight found a minor irregularity on the rear wing and the No. 82 car will now start the race from the back of the grid after having its times canceled.

The Ferrari times were just a tick faster then the two Corvette's and in my opinion (for what it is worth) I truely believe that the Corvette's would over take the Ferrari some where on one of the long straights on the first lap. The Ferrari is a little better under braking and through the tight spots on the track, but there are those long straights that Corvette should excell in.

Cannot wait for tomorrow.

Has anybody noticed the paint scheme on the 92 Aston Martin. Looks a little like the 63 & 64 Corvette's.

Yeah, I caught that looking through the spotter's guide and thought "Hmmm, jealus much?!'.

Did you guys watch the dick thompson narrated documentary? I particularly loved the fact that the old vettes had that distincive v8 roar that the new ones have. Music to my ears!

Their rear wing was found to be 2 mm too tall.

Just looked at the Pratt and Miller video feed and #63 and #64 are tucked in bed with a wicked WHITE and black body panels. Looks like the team went with a somewhat retro look to the 50th anniversary of Corvettes first LeMans win!!!

HAMMER DOWN BOYS!!!!!

Let's show the world what a CHEVY can do!!!!!
