Chewie-1990 should be qualifying in the top 10 on the grid

"Franc" {Jacques Dewes} - 7 starts
"Jean Beurlys" (Jean Blaton) - 6 starts
"John Winter" (Louis Krages) - 9 starts

Which leads me to my question. Who is "Steve Brooks" who will drive the #89 Porsche this weekend ? I see he has quite a strong background in historic racing but does anyone know who's the man behind the man:

"The ‘nom de plume’ ‘Steve Brooks is actually 65-year-old French racer Philippe Haezebrouck who will be making his six Le Mans start, his best result today came on his debut in 2001 when he finished second in GT with Gunnar Jeannette and future double overall winner and WEC World Champion Romain Dumas."

Thanks for the article. Interesting story, guess some can’t stay away. ‘Steve Brooks’ won’t win, but will probably enjoy himself and hopefully give his sponsors some good value for money

Yes, I saw that too. Interesting that the car is sponsored by Brooks Real Estate, so is this just a clever marketing ploy to create more interest:





Otherwise, if you've already driven at Le Mans five times before under your own name, why do you now need a Nom de plume?

I hadn't thought of that Simon.....

They're not too quick, but I think they're all rookies just needing to get their laps in, I guess.
