Don't think you need the question mark - it looks fairly solid!

Pleased about this - a good outfit who had terrible luck in 2008 and great to see them back. With the problems the turbo cars have had this year, their aspirations of maybe making the LMP2 podium at Silverstone might not be completely unrealistic.

Obviously the WFR entry is a bit more low-key than the Embassy project was last year, but given the presence of Warren Hughes and Darren Manning joining Jody Firth on the driving strength, it certainly looks as if they mean business

I suspect the difficulties of last year have gone some way to reinforce the notion that a tight focus on getting the car running properly and getting results is at the heart of running a successful team.

Can't help feeling that the approach they're taking this time has got the solid achievable aims that could really see them reap rewards in 2010 and beyond.

I forgot how nice looking the Embassy car was! I hope the team has more success this year than in the past. They really deserve it with all the work they put in.

It is wonderful news to have Jonathan and the team back at it! Wish them all the best, as always.

And yes, they were/are testing in a very familiar, to them, chassis/engine combo.

Hmm, it is to 09 spec. As a, what the heck. Is Le Mans in 2010 on their wish list? There was mention by Scott A. of "potentially additional high-profile teams and manufacturers from Europe". Is the ex-Embassy Racing a high-profile team because of its return? How many P-2s at Petit will be in 09 spec and qualify for the auto-invite to Le Mans?
Seems quite the long shot, though.
