Great comment Stephan.

I was there in 2006 and the Panoz was the most reliable for sure. Just doing their laps to really hang on in there.

As I can remember it was a real massacre in the GT2 group in 2006, but the rain of 2007 and 2008 has fogged my memory or was it the beer???

I really hope Spyker do well this year, and they owe it to their fans to finally make it to the finish...

I keep my fingers crossed, But I really think they have 'upped' their performance, although I miss the 'real' Spyker sound...

Would be nice if we were able to see the pictures Stephan, you need a login for the pictures, so for the general public they are of no use.

I am sorry for that, I wanted to post the pictures in this thread but I don't know how. I thought I just link to the Spyker forum where I posted them also, but apparantly that's not working...

Bernard Bram has a lot of promise if they can keep it on the circuit!
€75 for a polo shirt? Not for me then.

Obviously Spyker wants to make as much money as possible. No merchandise for the fans. Maybe the cap...

I think that's the hand of snob Victor Muller at work here,only catering for the well funded folk.

Too bad. Not even a nice shirt displaying the Le Mans name and year with the car/brand.

A missed chance if you ask me...

Good race from Spyker - seems all the testing was worth doing it.

Well, the one Spyker in the race certainly showed the 5 Porsches in the race how to do it.

Yes, a flawless race. They were a bit slower than hoped unfortunately. I did not expect them to be exactly on the pace of the fastest Porsches and Ferrari's, but 5-10s per lap is a bit much.
I guess the lack of cilindersize really hits you at Le Mans, more than at other tracks.

Indeed very good! Did you guys saw the video's they made during the race? Really nice and all HD quality.

I do get the idea that the team did everything possible to get to the finish. Don't push the engine or the car. Just take it easy and make sure you stay going all 24 hours.

And it paid of they had no problems whatsoever. One a few puntured tires and the changes the brakediscs and pads. That's all. Not even an off or a spin as far as I know.
