Stéphane Ortelli, driver of the # 54 Saleen S7R, says the revised aerodynamics aids in high speed corners. Ortelli took the overall victory in the 1998 24 Hours of Le Mans.

Lone Lamborghini Murciélago R-GT out of race

Marco Apicella has crashed in a qualifying session.

The lineup had been...

JLOC Iso Noritake has also finalized its line-up with Atsushi Yogo joining Koji Yamanishi and Marco Apicella in the team’s Lamborghini Murcielago R-GT.

http://www.the-paddock.net/content/view/241650/49/

The Lamborghini Murciélago was returned to its garage covered up on a low loader, and the garage doors were firmly shut at 21.30hrs. Traditionally this means the team have withdrawn the car.

I like this picture a lot. It is of the # 40 ASM Team Racing for Portugal. It is a Lola B05/40 with a 2.0 liter AER turbo'd I-4. It is one of the favorites for the LMP2 victory.

Drivers: Miguel Pais do Amaral, Warren Hughes, and Miguel de Castro.

The coverage right now of the race at night is not coming from Speed TV's cameras. Some camera people have been given a break so that is why the camera often shows the front straight.
