GroupC4ever should be qualifying in the top 10 on the grid
Manufactures you would like to see enter into Sportscars?

Is there any manufactures you would like to see enter into sportscars who currently aren't?

I myself would like to see a return of Nissan and Toyota in LMP-1. It would be great to see both of them in ALMS and LMS plus the 24 hours of Le Mans.

I wouldn't mind seeing a Ford LMP-1 under the Ford banner in ALMS and under the Jaguar banner in LMS.

What do you think?

Well it'd be nice to see the Carrera GT and Koenigsegg that were "built" for GT1 a while back.

I'd love to see my own manufacturer at Le Mans; the Yorath LMP1 has a nice ring to it

I'd like to see Caddilac, but that may actually be happening and a factory supported Viper effort from Dodge would be pretty sweet. However, the biggest I would like to see in ALMS/LMS would be BMW and M-B.

In LMP1: Toyota (or Lexus), Nissan and of course Ferrari and Porsche.

But every manufacturer is welcome in sportscar racing (from Dacia to Volvo).

Jaguar, they should be in it. Jaguar and Le-mans go together like Tea and Biscuits, Like Egg and Steak, Like Eric B And Rakim, Like Jordan and the Bulls and many other accompaniments/Pairings we've all come to love/know. I'd Love Mazda to give it a proper go, not some hash-up branding we are seeing. Toyota, Nissan, Ferrari, Porsche (all LMP1 of course) Id also like to see a manufacture from South Korea, Hyundai or Kia.

How about we cut this thread short, and just say we'd like to see everybody who is not involved now?

I'd not only like to see Jaguar at Le Mans, they bloody well need to be there, their sporting image is absolutely rock bottom, they're back with their old man image.

Jaguars now almost forgotte F1 escapade proves a manufactuer has to choose their program very carefully.

We all realise F1 recieves mega publicity, but I'm convinced Jaguars sporting image and cool factor would have been transformed if they'd returned to Le Mans/LMS/ALMS with a P1 program.

Hopefully the Apex GT3 XKR program will grow into something bigger very soon, Jaguar sure do need it to.

I like the idea of a spyker prototype. Orange is a winner's colour!

And yeah, no M-B, YUCK. They'd end up being big, white with massive wheels and tinted screens. And they'd install ICE and still win...

I would love to see a Ford vs. Chevy battle in LMP1 here in the ALMS. Then continue the fight at Le Mans against the rest of the world.
