Did you know that when the MG Lola EX257s were scrutineered for the 2001 Le Mans Preliminary Test Day in May last year, they were found to be shorter than the LMP675 Class minimum length!

If you have a look at any photos from last years Test Day, you will see a small black block on the front lower centre of the car near the air intake, just below the MG badge. This block, probably no thicker than 6 or 7 mm, was just enough to increase the length, so the car was over the Class minimum length!

This block actually survives on the the cars to this day, albeit painted bright green on the XPower entries, black on the Knighthawk and blue on the Intersport entries.

Anybody else got anything similar of interest to Forum Members?

Kind regards,

'Extreme!'
