Since I have been watching sportscar racing (1997), I would have tio say Bernd Schneider was the best.

That's a really tough question and my thoughts are inevitably biased towards those who have done well at Le Mans. In recent years, I would put Kristensen and Dalmas high on the list, together with Wallace, then Ickx and Bell, and not forgetting the likes of Bellof who was a great sports car driver as well as an F1 star cut down in his prime. Hakkiman is right about Schneider as well. There are more criteria to think about than in F1, due to the length of races. Mechanical sympathy is pretty important, hence my reference to Derek Bell, who had a fantastic ability to nurse a car home.

Oh, I forgot two others who have to be on any list, Bob Wollek, and one of my personal favourites, Hans Stuck. (And Larrauri, and not forgetting the exploits of Moss, Fangio and others from an earlier era).

I'm going to stop before I have a list twice as long as your arm.....!

Jan Lammers, fought his way up the ranks and just when you wrote him off, he leads le mans in a privateer Dome to show what he's made off.

won Le Mans once Rolex twice and is still a treath!!!

Wow, really chopped that one up?!
I have to agree, Jan Lammers was very fast in the Dome (waiting to see what he can do with new Judd )

How about McNish, Alliot, Brundle, Pescarolo?

i think the pairings of beretta / wendlinger and pescatori/terrien have been pretty impressive over the last few years....

Really - what short (or young memories )! Surely most of you remember the name Stirling Moss! I can't recall reading about any categorie he was'nt successful in. (only Aysedasi picked up on this)

Well other than my Dad.....

I always liked the Rothmans Porsche of Derek Bell and Hans Stuck when I watched videos from that era as a child. I also liked Bob Wollek and Frank Jelinski didn't seem too bad either. From recent years Kristensen has to have a mention, even if he was in an Audi any guy who has the balls to say that he relieved himself at the wheel on live TV desrves a mention!!!!
