As far as I know, though, these were the only women yet to have won at LM. It might only have been a class win, but a win's a win at LM, class or overall.

I'm pretty sure that's right.

Claudia Hurtgen scored a GT2 podium in '98. Any other female podiums posters know of?

I vaguely remembered that there where plenty women driving at Le Mans in the '30s and according to this I was right:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of...omen.27s_teams

And apparently there was in earlier all woman crew winning their class in 1974, the Chevron driven by Beckers, Laurent and Fontaine.
And a second one in 1975, making it two woman crews winning the class in 1975.

In the circuit infield there is a pond in the shape of Silverstone, although it needs some work done to get up to date.

Bizarre. Who owns the land it's on? Looks light industrial so may be motorsport related?

This is the Le Mans FC training fields with the small pond. But that was before.....Near this place, the "big" pond is in an area that belongs to the MMA insurances. This leasure complex is for the company workers who can fish in this pond, rent a hall for parties..

It seems a little strange as the silverstone course has changed over the years so how long has this pond been there
