I seem to read 323Km/h. I can't find where the revs should be stated in the wheel.
I kept pausing and restarting, I was sure pretty I saw 332 but was on my phone. Though they were at full throttle for a long time.

I managed to get 331, but there was a little time before braking after that. I'd estimate 332-335 before lifting.

If both Kolles-Nissan and BR-AER have been testing at Aragon, does anyone have any lap-times to compare?

Handy to have United Autosports LMP2 times as well for comparison. But I don't suppose anyone has any times...
Were AMR testing the new Vantage at the same time?

I think Rebellion will go with Zytek, for the same reason Dragonspeed went for it with the BR... reliability will probably be more important in this first year than speed.

It might lack against the other engines, but if they indeed go with Oreca and it's anything like the previous three chassis, the design probably will supplement the power deficit

Anyway I still HOPE they pick Judd

Can't remeber if it was rebellion or another oreca team, but early this year, oreca 07 was testing at aragon as well and it was revealed that the car touched 340km/h more than once.... so CLM hitting >330km/h isn't so shocking to me... considering also that the car is (in theory) 70-80kg lighter than an lmp2 a 100hp more powerful, is almost quite disappointing indeed.

Kolles is the most elusive team of the whole WEC, what makes you think that they are going to share private test laptimes?

At the end has been revealed if the "new" judd V10 is 72 or 90 degrees?

http://juddpower.com/our-engines/judd-gv-5-0-5-5l-v10/

this still gives 72. And according to them, it needs a rebuilding after 3000km... quite wierd considering that le mans race is over 5000km.... it's just if they're telling you: "watch out, with this engine you won't finish the race"

anyway to me is very unlikely that someone will pick the judd, just because it would need a lot of rework around the rear subframe

Just a reminder, there will be EoT between turbo and NA engine, so I would not count out the NA option.

The new ACO technical regulations for the LMP1 will be implemented an Equivalence of Technology between turbo compressed and normally aspirated engines (as done in the past between petrol and diesel).
I suppose that then the NA engines will be competitive.

Good shot. I think around the 23-24 second mark is when I saw 332 and there was another few seconds before he braked. So I agree with your estimate.

On top speeds, they were the fastest on the straight at Le Mans last year overall through the weekend but I think they added some wing to the car to get a better lap time for the race. The Dallara p2's were one-trick ponies in that regard.

The Judd AIM has a 90 degree V angle and 5000km rebuild interval.
