A bit early but people are already talking about it! A must for an awful lot of people- competitors, spectators, Marshals, classic car owners......

I can’t imagine not being there, even if I’m just kicking tyres!

Gerard C should be qualifying in the top 10 on the grid
I seem to remember that for a Grp C and others more modern you need this test together with a HTP. Matter of safety and common sense I'd say.
I wonder about the driver's licence certainly its worth an email or phone call.
A bloke has just been quoted a crack test for his RSR, direct cost is really expensive. There's a lot of labour to be added like striping the steering column and I can't see how you can have the hubs tested without changing the bearings, bits and bobs… Front, rear, left, right…
With only around 70 cars admitted the grid will be more than full, it will be played "à guichets fermés".
Its Le Mans magic, you know.

As I said, I can understand crack testing for CER, GpC, Endurance Legends etc, but for 60s Endurance eligible cars?

Anyway, all irrelevant to me as I don’t own an eligible car!

Nice to see a Sauber C6 . Has one ever raced in historics?

Nice to see a non Equipe Europe 905 although that means no Lola T92/10.

Will be good to see Olivier Hart who is still in his teens I think drive a Group Jaguar XJR9.

What an incredible quality wise grid so far and its only Issue 1.

If you mean main lists- Entrants still waiting have been told ‘late January’, but bare in mind how late the first list was....... If you mean GpC & EL- no idea......

Pretty disappointing entry for the Group C race so far!

I agree actually, all the other lists are filled with exciting cars, but Group C so far i think could do with filling out.

Of course at any other event that Group C list would have me dancing on the ceiling!

The entry forms for Porsche race were only circulated in last week.
The warm up races are usually late being organised and Group C has never had lots of cars with most failing to finish .

The Sthemo entry is quite interesting imo. Nice story behind this car, H Striebig was a real enthusiast, an inspired driver and a very nice person to talk with. He was the first to drive a 934 in France, at Albi in '75 I think.
If there's a need to fill this grid hope others will be suggested to join like Inaltera's, Ecosse Ford, ALD or WM's all good performers even though a different league compared to 956 and XJRs.

Still is only Issue 1. I think last Le Mans Classic they only had 42 cars.

Wait and see.

Endurance Legends on first glance looks more like a Porsche race.
