    Absolutely. As for the Champ Car, I like very much the idea of a race in France. Magny Cours could be the good track for this event. Dijon is probably too dangerous for this series...

    but has the 3rd R10 been confirmed yet? I thought they were still looking for sponsorship

    The 3rd R10 will be confirmed early in June.
    As for the drivers, Audi line up is exceptional but I'd say the Peugeot line up is even stronger than the Audi one (on paper).
    Bourdais and Villeneuve are so fast. And all the others are just behind.

    Peugeot line up is really a good surprise.

    Oops, I wanted to say that the 3rd R10 will be confirmed "early in May" instead of "early in June". At least, that's what Audi said.

    Not so bad !!!

    According to Endurance-Info, the 908 which took part to the 24 hours endurance test between last thursday and friday(drivers Bourdais and Villeneuve) had a 20 hours run without any problems to engine/gearbox !!

    The engine broke down after 20 hours of intensive run...for a still very new car, it's rather encouraging

    Not so bad. Let's see if the gear box will withstand the Valencia race on sunday. This track is a good test for the gear box.

    Otherwise, 908 #7 should have the green nose livery and 908 #8 the red nose one.

    damn, Forza 2 looks awesome. (its ashame cause I loved the GT series, but Forza looks like they got most of the ALMS/LMS cars )

    and they have the 2006 Audi R8

    I may just have to buy a 360 to get this game.
