I agree for me personally its a no brainer but for such a diverse publication to put it at the top was a bit of a shock

It's what I've always known - well, since 1986 anyway! Good on them for ignoring the F1 media hype.

Re: National Geographic

Just a shame that they couldn't get some of the details correct. "Roughly 46 cars start", and "starts at 4pm" are wrong for a start, although that was the traditional start time, are we stuck at 3pm nowadays?

Yep, that's true - 3 pm start has been n place for several years now. Still, the sentiment is clearly right!


I notice we also have 'Wimbeldon' at #6.......

Clearly they got their information from the ACO - see the thread regarding the Group C practice.

I've always tended to rely on Stefan's Le Mans Register. Not sure about poles though.....

Don't be put off by the title at the top of the page though......

Just watching the documentary about Jaguar's assault on Le Mans 1988 (very good piece of documentary making, has to be said), and there's quite a few interview soundbites from Derek Bell (MBE, yes, just to be official )... is he joking or is he serious when he's talking about not being on speaking terms with Klaus Ludwig after Klaus had run out of fuel early in the race?

I really don't know, but I think we can safely assume that Derek and Stucky were pretty miffed!

Is this 'Jaguar's Roar'???

Edit: this explanation of Jan Lammers about nearly missing out on Victory is from that documentary, so my guess is yes. I definately need a copy of that film!
