greenmachinets040 should be qualifying in the top 10 on the grid

I think maybe 3:12s are possible, but < 3:10 is out of reach unless they run unrestricted (which I don't think will be allowed, officially).

Thank you for the precious data! Can t wait to see what Toyota is capable of with this weight, MJ and the new Aero kit for LM.

They would also need the sister car to give them a tow on the straights.

Then, I presume there is a possibility of a 3:11. 3:12 I think is doable with soft tyres and without restrictions without a tow.

How much time was attributable to favorable wind conditions for the 3:14 lap? I seem to remember there was a tail wind going down Mulsanne, and head wind through the Porsche Curves giving more downforce?

If there was it was minimal. Those days that year were all hot and devoid of much wind.

This has to do with Toyota and its LMP1 car. Maybe it does not exactly fit this thread but I thought it was intersting to share it.
Yesterday, "Campeones" (racing media from Argentina), had an extensive chat with José María "Pechito" López via Instagram Live and one of the many things he shared was the shootout in which he gained his spot in the team. Toyota called 12 drivers to test along 3 days (4 drivers each day) and some of the names were Jean-Éric Vergne, Sam Bird, Kevin Magnussen, Adrian Sutil, Felipe Nasr, Ryō Hirakawa and Heikki Kovalainen.

New names in that list. I heard Sutil, Hirakawa and Jev but not the others.

Toyota can't complain about lack of time to to prepare the debut of their hypercar!

Minor point, but starting from today (and hence for the last races for LMP1 as we know it) TMG will officially change their operating name from Toyota Motorsport GmbH to Toyota Gazoo Racing Europe GmbH. Seems to be part of Toyota Motorsport standardizing on the use of the Gazoo Racing branding for most of their platforms outside of Toyota Racing Development USA.

In These Days with covid 19 I am giving more opinions with my feelings and I do not care if you answer me or not, Toyota had a hard time to win Le Mans but finally they did and they already won it 2 times.
And now that it is easy in 2020 too then, why not think of winning with an iconic and unforgettable car?
I have the feeling that the Mazda787 is much more iconic than the 13 Audis that won Le Mans and even the Ferrari 333SP is much more iconic than all of them.
Now that it's easy ..... Why not put on a V12 in the TS50 and make it a victory with an unforgettable sound?

Because as Aston realized you can't win with a V12 today. Especially with the new news that will be coming out...
