That is a good question! At Le Mans the winning Corvette averaged 119 mph, but can't find how many tires they used. Although I know they were able to triple stint once or twice.

And at Daytona, where the (IMO, poor) regulations disincentivise multiple stinting tyres and the load on the outside tyres, in particular, is much higher?

You're right, different track (and regulations) have different effects on tire strategy and lifespan. Maybe with the new T&S this year we can better keep track of tire usage in gtlm at Daytona.

As I said on the previous page, because of the silly rules there is no point in not using the maximum allowed Michelin allowance, which again is higher than for spec Hoosiers in DP (or any other classs).

There are two questions buzzing round in my head at the moment, the first is what Mr Tomlinson will do with his LMP lookalike and the second is what will Mr Booth's new Manor Endurance Racing company actually race.

Somehow I feel there should be a synergy there but can't quite see what it is, apart of course from two strong Yorkshiremen who both love racing

This new Alpine could make a very neat little GT4.

Next stop, Alpine road going version of the Renault RS01 so it can be a legitimate GT3 car.

DC's dislike towards endurance racing has been known for years.

It is good to see rivalry between the drivers and if DC did not see WEC as a rival to F1 he would not have made that comment.

Rival? No.

The WEC is better than F1.

Having said that. DC is probably mad nobody has come to call him for a WEC drive, yet Mark Webber is there.
