Both Zyteks have the Zytek engine. Where are you getting the info about the Gainer Dome? I have not read that anywhere at all? Is this based on the thought they will come to Petit angling for Le Mans invite next year?

What I know to help the list is...

That there were some rumors back before Le mans that RfH wanted to enter a Dome S101 Judd , maybe two. The rest of LMP1 looks like a close guess.

LMP2 will have 2 Penske Porsche RS Spyders, not one. I wouldn't have the slightest clue for other LMP2 contenders but the usual season runners.

GT1 looks like a spot on guess to me. Only, there could be two Carsport Vipers.

GT2 will be the same armada of Porsche GT3 RSRs against the two Panoz cars, maybe one ferrari 360 GTC, and a Spyker. I don't know about the TVRs?

Hopefully, there will be a nice, decent entry list for Petit Le Mans 2005. If not, then there will for sure be a good list for 2006 PLM, and the rest of ALMS and defentaly Le Mans...

Porsche never announced two cars for PLM, only one. There will be two in 2006, but only one this year.

I seem to recall that Martin Short's definitely found the funding to run the Dallara Nissan and is looking for co-drivers to fund the Dallara Judd - so probably should have both Rollcentre cars in the prospective list.

Would make sense for him to run both cars and attract some customers for them in the U.S. In Europe he can only put them into the museum after PLM.

And he would also save the money for shipping cars back if he sells them straight away

I imagine Rollcentre'll still have to ship at least on of the cars (presumably the Judd) back for the Istanbul round of the LMES.

That said, (and I appreciate I'm about to wander massively off topic), I still have enough concerns about the likely entry list for Istanbul that I'm reluctant to even think about booking to go out for it (despite loving the city the appeal of seeing the last splash for old school prototypes in Europe).

I think its interesting to note all the converstaion here is centering around prototypes. Not trying to dis-respect GT cars but IMO it shows that prototypes are what really get sportscar racing fans blood flowing. They are the shock troops of speed (well, they would be if they'd increase the restrictors a bit!!)

in GT1 Graham Nash is looking for a Le mans entry, and in GT2 so is LNT, but all these rumore about the proto's is the big topic. i think only one RS Spyder and one Viper, Carsport barely had money to run this year, so where would they get money for a second entry. with all the entry's its becoming like the name means "Small Le Mans" which would be great

DSC is confirming that GNM is entering one, possibly two of their Saleem in PLM and Laguna Seca - should help the numbers a little
