RedSquirrel should be qualifying in the top 10 on the grid
Have there been any updates to the AER engine since Le Mans last year? Or any changes to the BR1 low drag aero? Because they are 10 km/h up on last year through the speed trap. 350 km/h!
Also, I'm quite disappointed by the new Rebellion aero. It has gained them only ~7 km/h while at the same time being around 6 tenths slower through the Porsche Curves alone.


Mind you, all the classes are a couple of seconds off last year. Aaarrrgghhh. Testing. What does it all mean?

Well, the best of this test is the parity between Rebellion and SMP, but who knows how real are these lap times. Toyota is 2 seconds ahead as always. DragonSpeed and Bykolles are slow and have problems half of the time, they made very few laps.

Not much to comment. I miss the Ginettas.

Buemi first into the 3:19s - 3.:19.440, four tenths away from last year's fastest time.

And there is action on the track! Some cars went to the walls
48 At Indianapolis
66 at Tertre Rouge
20 at Porsche curve
49 at Mulsanne.........ans other jones.

Still the battle in GTE PRO BMW to battle with GTE AM

Finally It's a good day

If the #7 doesn't find some time, we will have the same scenario than last year. It would be great to have a good fight at the front between both Toyotas.

Rebellion has done 3:19.680 last year duting the test.

This year, they don't have the flow meter, a better aero and a year of experience with the car and they are running at 3:22.232.
They must sandbag big time otherwise, I do not understand...

Only thing I can think is the track isn't as good as last year plus its pretty hot out 31.1 C or 87.8 F which would slow the cars down some.

Who was in the RLM booth before Ben Keating? Whoever it was mentioned that the track was very dusty, and they're still blowing the dust away at this stage, so it definitely is not as good as it was last year.

Speaking of Keating, I'm surprised the Ford GT is so far off in AM trim. Could be the team learning the car still or the BOP is off for it.

It's the most reasonable, I can't believe that everybody is sandbagging, these cars are already well known.

My only hope is an enormous amount of sandbagging from Rebellion and BR1......,if not...we’ll see an even worse race than last year.
For GTE it is obvious.....BMW and Aston are sandbagging like hell to get a better BOP for the race
