Good on them and I hope they (particularly Kruse and Stuart Hall) have everything come good on Saturday.
I think you've said it better than me - I don't mean there isn't effort in F1, likewise with the passion, but at Le Mans it is so much more apparent, particularly given the budgetary restraints of the privateers.

Le Mans seems to have this undeniable romance about it, something F1, even at Monaco, now lacks. It is the reason why I don't particularly care to catch F1 a couple of hours from home, but I hope to fly across the Atlantic to France one June just to be there and feel it...

Anyway, tangents aside things are looking good for the KSM boys - glad to see Allan Simonsen should indeed get his shot at a P2 car.

Yeah lets give it up for the poor KSM boys, they have together with Lola worked like H.. all night through, to give their drivers something to drive.!!

Looking forward to see, what Allan can do in a P2 car
